Summary
  • The performance of state-of-the-art high-speed, high-resolution, low-cost monolithic video digital-to-analog converters (DACs) is surveyed. The DACs come in bipolar and CMOS designs and brands and performance are outlined. Factors that define an individual DAC's performance are speed in handling data rate, glitches, high power-dissipation, resolution, and logic compatibility. Digital word to analog pixel DAC rate, in the context of a total raster-scan graphics system using one (monochrome) or three (color) video DACs, depends on: horizontal and vertical resolution, vertical-retrace time, and number of times a second that all pixels on a screen are re-displayed. DAC speed is measured by bandwidth and the period in which a DAC processes a received digital word into its analog value - depending on rise time, not settling time. Signal output strength is a second factor. Final resolution depends on the display. The widely used CRT design is described and its performance factors evaluated, including the critical resolution factors of beam spot size and shadow mask.
