The relationships between yield, area, and impedance distribution in 3 different types of dual-string DACs are developed. Optimal area allocation and impedance distribution strategies for maximizing yield and enhancing performance are introduced. Simulation results show that a factor of 2 or more reduction in area for a given yield is possible if typical area/impedance allocations are replaced with an optimal area/impedance allocation.
