Abstract

This 55nm CMOS 12-bit current-steering DAC directly powered by the single-inductor dual-output (SIDO) switching DC-DC converter with the dynamic voltage scaling (DVS) technique improves the DAC's power efficiency by 25% and achieves 65.34dB SFDR. The proposed 3S method, including separating, splitting, and shifting, effectively reduces the current mismatching within 0.2% and suppresses the switching noise interference from the SIDO converter. The 12-bit DAC and SIDO module achieve compatible performance compare to the tradition method and has the benefit of area and energy efficiency.
