Dither is only an issue when using a control loop. The difference is that  
with dithering you eliminate the D/A portion which doubles the cost from $ 
15 to  $ 30. I personally prefer the analog approach. The same design can 
have both  options. Part of the program.

Ahh.  Not so simple, then.  I still don't much like the  notion of 
dithering, but it may be the only alternative.  Or, as has  also been 
suggested here, add a manual C-field adjustment (but that would  not 
change the fact that the RS-232 adjustments would still be ~ 7e-13  steps).

Best  regards,
