Attaining fast calibration, energy-efficiency and less chip area is important for design of high-speed and high-accuracy digital-to-analog converters in nanometer process, especially in mobile communication system or electronic systems which utilize batteries to supply the power. This work presents a fast calibration technique with bypass window, which shrink chip area and optimizes calibration sequence to skip several conversion steps when the signal is within the predefined window. A behavioral model of a 14-bit segmented digital-to-analog converters was implemented, and the chip area of the most significant bits current source arrays shrinks by 8 times. According to the digital calibration, the differential non-linearity and integral non-linearity are both smaller than 0.5LSB. Due to the introduction of bypass window technique, the calibration time and power consumption are reduced by up to 13%.
