JD-800 and JD-990 DAC Calibration
Calibration for the JDs Digital to Analog Converters (DAC).
Just to remember, the DAC is that circuit where the digital signal is converted to analog. This is a very important part of the JD, because the quality of the result it does.
In principle, you give a digital input to a DAC and it provides an accurate output voltage. In reality, the accuracy of the output voltage is subject to gain and offset errors from the DAC and other components in the signal chain. The system designer must compensate for these errors in order to get an accurate output voltage. This can be implemented with external components and post-manufacture trimming. Digital calibration modifies the input sent to the DAC such that the gain and offset errors are taken into account thus removing the need for external components and trimming.
