Abstract : An object of the invention is to provide a charge-coupled multiplying digital-to-analog converter wherein the multiplication is done with charges rather than voltage so that it is directly compatible with CCD processing and can be done on a charge-transfer device. Another ojbect of the invention is to provide such a converter wherein the reference function is digital, thus allowing both multiplier inputs to vary. These and other objects of the invention will become more readily apparent from the ensuing specification when taken together with the drawings.
