Fast PWM DAC has no ripple
16.10.2018 · Circuits
The enduring simplicity of PWM DACs will always earn them a place in the designer’s cookbook, but slow response time and the problem of PWM ripple tend to limit their appeal and utility. The usual way of attenuating PWM ripple, an RC low pass filter, can never succeed in completely eliminating it, and only makes output settling time agonizingly slow if you try...
