DAC (Digital-to-Analog Converter)

From Higher Intellect Vintage Wiki
Jump to navigation Jump to search

A hardware device (in its simplest form, nothing more than a set of interconnected resistors) which converts a digital number into an analog signal whose voltage is proportional to the value of the digital number. VGA and later color video boards use DACs to convert color values into the analog signals sent to the display; sound boards normally use DACs as well.
