This work is concerned with the design and the characterization of digital-to-analog current converters, developed in a 65 nm CMOS technology, conceived for threshold tuning of front-end
channels at the High-Luminosity LHC experiment upgrades. Two DAC structures were integrated in a small prototype chip, that was submitted in August 2018 in the framework of the RD53 developments. The prototype has been tested before and after exposure to X-rays up to a TID of 460 Mrad($SiO_2$). The main performance parameters of the two structures are compared and discussed in the paper.

Metadata are provided both in "article" format (very similar to INSPIRE) as this helps creating
very compact bibliographies which can be beneficial to authors and
readers, and in "proceeding" format
which is more detailed and complete.
