This paper introduces data converter circuit based on memristors. A proposed Digital to Analog Converter (DAC) circuit based on non-overlapped input signals, which is suitable for common source connected transistors. Analytical formulas are introduced to relate the digital input with the analog output including the transistors dimension. In addition, PSpice simulations are performed to validate the theoretical analysis for several cases. Moreover, a modified circuit for 2-bit digital to analog converter is introduced where the input can be overlapped. One of the advantages of these designs that they are simple and area efficient. © 2016 IEEE.
