TIPD125: DAC Signal Conditioning, 24-Bit SPI in


This unipolar to bipolar signal conditioning circuit uses an op amp with negative feedback and three resistors in a modified summing amplifier configuration to generate high-voltage bipolar outputs from a generic single supply unipolar digital-to-analog converter (DAC).

This design will take consideration for generating voltage outputs commonly used in industrial process control applications and for driving reactive loads such as long cables also common in industrial applications. The fundamentals of the design can be extended to condition any unipolar DAC to any bipolar range of operation.
