Hello, does anyone know what is DAC BIAS bit good for?


The user manual v2.1 states:


page 828 - Selectable speed vs. power


page 830 -


bit 6 BIAS Settling time


The settling times noted in the description of the BIAS bit are valid for a capacitance load on the DAC_OUT pin not exceeding 100 pF. A load impedance value greater than that value will cause settling time longer than the specified time. One or more graphs of load impedance vs. settling time will be included in the final data sheet.


0 The settling time of the DAC is 1 us max, and the maximum current is 700 uA. This allows a maximum update rate of 1 MHz.


1 The settling time of the DAC is 2.5 us and the maximum current is 350 uA. This allows a maximum update rate of 400 kHz.


----------------------------


It seems that if I enable the BIAS I will get only worse functionality of the DAC, nothing more. Of course there is not any graph in the final data sheet.
