D/A Converter

Simple digital to analog converter Description The D/A Converter (or DA Converter) component is a simple digital to analog converter with an input signal width of $N$ bits. The input signal is an $N$-vector of type Logic. The output voltage of value $y$ is generated by an ideal voltage source. The output changes when the trigger signal $\mathrm{trig}$ of type Logic changes to 1 (forced or weak). The first bit in the input vector, ${x}_{1}$, is the least significant. Dynamic behavior is not modeled; the output changes instantaneously when the trigger signal rises.
 Equations $y={v}_{p}-{v}_{n}={V}_{\mathrm{lsb}}\sum _{i=1}^{N}{x}_{i}{2}^{i-1}$ ${V}_{\mathrm{lsb}}=\frac{{V}_{\mathrm{ref}}}{{2}^{N}-1}$ ${i}_{p}+{i}_{n}=0$
