General Description

The Dithered Voltage Digital to Analog Converter (DVDAC) component has a selectable resolution between 9 and 12 bits. Dithering is used to increase the resolution of its underlying 8-bit VDAC8. Only a small output capacitor is required to suppress the noise generated by dithering.
