A digital-to-analog converter (DAC) converts digital data into an analog signal in terms of either current or voltage output. Nowadays, most DACs are implemented as integrated circuits. This reference design utilizes the DAC8562, which is a 16-bit, dual, low power, ultra-low glitch, buffered voltage output DAC. This IC includes a 2.5V, 4-ppm/°C internal reference, giving a full-scale output voltage range of 2.5V or 5V. Read more
