For a high-accuracy current-steering digital-to-analog converters (DACs), the delay differences between the current sources is one of the major reasons that cause bad dynamic performance. In this paper, a mathematical model describing the impact of the delay differences on the DACs SFDR property is presented. The results are verified by comparison to behavioral-level simulations and to actual measurement data from published papers. Based on this analysis, the delay differences cancellation (DDC) technique to reduce the impact of the delay differences on the SFDR property is proposed and verified by simulation results.
