What is a D/A converter?

A/D, D/A requirements

1.LSI Trends

Electrically sophisticated and high-speed processing are performed digitally in CPUs and DSPs.
Natural phenomena are converted to digital signals using an A/D converter for digital signal processing, then converted back to analog signals via a D/A converter.
