To calibrate the VGA of a read head, test signals from a DAC are input to the VGA and the output of the VGA is observed, with the gain of the VGA being adjusted as appropriate. So that the DAC need not be made with tight tolerances, a DC signal can be fed into the DAC prior to VGA calibration, and a ...
