The DAC on a graphics card is commonly known as a RAMDAC because it takes the data it converts directly from the card's memory. RAMDAC speed greatly affects the image you see on the monitor. This is because the refresh rate of the image depends on how quickly the analog information gets to the monitor.
A circuit that accepts digital input signals and converts them to analog output signals. Sometimes called DAC chips, they are used in VGA video cards, for example.
A device that converts digital signals to analog signals. CD players, laserdisc players, DBS boxes,and DVD players all contain digital-to-analog converters.
A device for converting a digital (usually binary) code to an analog signal. It is often abbreviated as DAC, D/A, or D to A. (source)
Output related devices which translate a computer's digital outputs to the corresponding analog signals needed by an output device such as an actuator. Contrast with ADC [Analog-to-Digital Converter].
DAC or D-A converter. a device that converts discrete digital information into a continuously varying analog signal.
AKA D/A Converter, DAC. An electronic circuit that converts a series of binary codes (Zeroes and Ones) into a continuous analog voltage.
device for converting digital signals into analogue signals
Converts a digital signal into a analog voltage or waveform.
Converts digital pulses into an analog output signal. The basic unit of all digital communications is the binary digit. A bit is a "1" or "0" in a binary language. Resolution is specified by number of bits (8 bit = 28 = 256 discrete, non-continuous values). Conversion speed is specified in Mega Hertz (MHz). See: D/A Converters
a device that creates an analog signal level from a digital value
A circuit that converts digital signals into their equivalent analog form.
Popularly known as a D-A converter, this device accepts an incoming digital bitstream and converts it to an analog electronic signal.
A device that converts audio from a digital, numeric representation to an ANALOG signal of constantly fluctuating voltages.
A device that changes the sample words put out by a digital audio device into analog fluctuations in voltage that can be sent to a mixer or amplifier. All digital synthesizers, samplers, and effects devices have DACs (rhymes with fax) at their outputs to create audio signals.
A device or circuit to convert a digital value to an analog signal level.
A circuit that converts binary numbers into an analog signal.
See D/A converter.
An electronic circuit that converts digital information into a continuous analog signal.
A device that reconstructs analog voltage waveforms from an incoming sequence of binary digits; does not in itself introduce noise.
A circuit that converts digital circuit outputs to equivalent analog voltages.
A device that converts digital information into a corresponding analog voltage or current.
is an integrated circuit (IC) or chip that coverts digital signals to analog signals. The signal that is being converted may be video or audio, depending on the DAC chip. Video uses a video DAC chip, while audio uses an audio DAC chip. Audio DACs are used in DVD players and audio/video receivers to convert the digital audio information into an analog audio output signal that is ready for amplification to drive the loudspeakers. Video DACs are used in DVD players to convert the digital video information to an analog video signal. back to the previous page
A device that accepts a digital input signal and converts it to an analog output, usually voltage or current. Abbreviated "D-A,", D/A", or "DAC."
In electronics, a digital-to-analog converter (DAC or D-to-A) is a device for converting a digital (usually binary) code to an analog signal (current, voltage or electric charge). Digital-to-analog converters are interfaces between the abstract digital world and analog real life.
