A low-power digital-to-analog converter for portable electronics is introduced. A fully segmented architecture with a spike-free current mirror is presented to improve the INL/DNL and reduce the power consumption of the high-speed current steering DAC. The presented 10-bit DAC have been implemented in 0.18μm IP6M CMOS standard technology, and its core area is 0.27mm 2. The simulation results show the DNL/INL is ±0.14/0.14 at a conversion rate of 10MHz, and consume 2.5mW of power from a 1.8V supply voltage.
