The DAC numbers were intended to express the scale of the problem and were 
rounded. Using a step of 5uV and 4.5mV of ground bounce (internal + 
external) the DAC count should be 900. At the time I never thought to 
measured the minimum and maximum voltages which are the numbers you want to 
know for EFC stability.

I just soldered wires to various points then twisted them together and used 
a HP 34401A to measure the voltage difference.

Unfortunately I never got a Z3801A.
