    I am searching a D/A converter circuit which outputs a voltage without needing a negative supply voltage.
    I would like to use the D/A converter AD7524 which uses an R/2R ladder. But this element has a current as output. I could transform the current in a voltage with an inverting amplifier using the feedback resistor and an operational amplifier, but this would result in a negative voltage. But I do NOT want to generate a negative voltage!
    I was already thinking about a normal shunt/resistor, but I am not sure whether this would work and what value the resistor must have.
    Has anyone an idea?

    On page 6 here there seems to be shown a way.
    It's drawn by hand and details are hard to discern but you'll get the idea.
    It seems to kind of feed the reference voltage in backwards and uses a shunt + an op-amp.
