Martin Clara: Delta sigma patterns for calibrating a digital-to-analog converter. ANALOG DEVICES, Patent Capital Group, February 21, 2017: US09577657 (1 worldwide citation)

A digital to analog converter (DAC) maps a digital word to an analog output. The DAC bits may have amplitude and timing errors. These errors (or sometimes referred herein as “non-idealities”) result in distortion and degradation of the dynamic range in DACs. To reduce these negative effects, delta-s ...
