This paper presents a new approach for accurate M-2M MOSFET digital-to-analog converter (DAC) design. It describes a complete design methodology, where DAC inaccuracy is related to transistor geometry and bias through a powerful physics-based MOSFET mismatch model, very useful for hand design. Short-channel effects are also taken into account. Two versions of the converter were implemented in a 0.35 mum 3.3 V CMOS technology, and corroborate the theoretical development with statistical experimental results.
