A digital-to-analog converter (DAC, D/A, D2A, or D-to-A) in electronics is a device that converts a digital signal to an analogue signal. The opposite operation is performed by an analog-to-digital converter (ADC). A DAC converts a digital input to its corresponding analogue form, as the name implies. Any ADC’s job is to convert any analogue input signal to its corresponding digital form. In this chapter, we’ll look at how to connect a DAC or ADC to an 8051 microcontroller. An analog-to-digital converter (ADC, A/D, or A-to-D) in electronics is a device that converts an analogue signal into a digital signal, such as sound picked up by a microphone or light entering a digital camera.
