The diode ladder might be a stretch to run on 5V.  

What about combining the EIDAC biasing to drive a single-ended ladder
and use opamps to perform the feedback?

Googling gives[1].  Not really what I expected.  Why the stacked

(* 8 0.63)

So some questions:

- C vs I_c, what's a good range?
- Why 3 "headroom" diodes?  Might be too much for 5V op.

Wrt headroom, current guess is that there has to be *something* there
to avoid the point to be grounded.  A diode is best since a resistor
wouldn't have enough dynamic range.  A couple of diodes raise the
resistance so give more voltage swing.

Found some more links[3].  The interesting part in that schematic is
the way the signal gets coupled in through the "ground" connection of
one of the caps.
