Currently I use a LT3083 as a constant current source more or less according to the datasheet as given in the first image. Instead of a single set resistor however is use a fixed resistor in series with a variable resistor connected via a cable to the case of my device which is generally not recommended as I'm told.
In the future I would like to set the current with a DAC if possible like this:
Unfortunately, the datasheet does not offer any more details to this configuration and it only works as a voltage regulator. How would I have to modify the second schematic to create a DAC controlled current source with the LT3082? Is this even possible?
