A device which interprets Digital information and converts it to Analog form. All digital musical instruments must have a DAC so that we can hear their output.
In narrow sense: A device (usually, a micro-chip) which transforms a signal from digital form to analog form. This is done by conversion of binary codes into analog signal values and holding these signal values during sampling interval. In wider sense: Device performing all functions, necessary to convert incoming digital video signals with a specified digital interface format, into analog video signals with a specified analog interface format, in particular, serial-to-parallel conversion, sampling frequency recovery, video signal post-filtering, and even sync pulse insertion Synonyms: D/A; DAC
A "DAC" is a device which receives digital input from some processor device and converts the digital value to a corresponding analog output to drive an analog control device.
A circuit used to change binary data that make up the digital audio signal into discrete voltage levels that approximate the original analog audio waveform. Abbreviated as D/A converter.
A device that changes a digitally coded word into its "equivalent" quantized analog voltage or current.
The part of a channel bank that encodes analog voice streams into a stream of binary digits, sampling the callers voice at 8000 times per second, within one of 256 possible sample levels. When the data stream reaches its destination, the process then occurs in reverse.
This electronic component converts a digital signal into analog. A sound card contains a DAC that converts digital computer data into equivalent analog so that it can be sent to a speaker.
A component which receives a continuous digital signal from a storage medium and generates an equivalent voltage for each number received. (See "Analog To Digital Converter")
A device or computer chip which converts digital information to analog information.
(DAC) - part of the interface that converts digital numbers from the computer into analog (ordinary) voltages or currents; used to generate gradient and RF wave forms.
An electrical circuit that converts binary information into an analog waveform.
Component or circuit that is used to derive or convert an analog signal from a digital one.
A device that converts a digital signal into an analog voltage or current, the magnitude of which is proportional to the numeric value of the digital signal.
