Data Conversion, Part 1

Created by Work-Ready Electronics, a project of the Advanced Technological Education program, this module is the first of two covering data conversion techniques, specifically digital-to-analog conversion (DAC) and analog-to-digital conversion (ADC). The module reviews basic concepts and methods and provides an overview of the rationale, need, and terminology. It also covers the fundamentals of DAC, introduces the newest methods, describes the critical specifications, and introduces typical integrated circuits (ICs) and applications. In addition to these course materials, there are two "Knowledge Probes" which provide an opportunity for students to master the objectives of the module. By clicking on "Learning Resources" at the top of the page, users will also find supplemental learning activities and additional resources for practice and research. The module also includes a glossary of terms and a notebook function.
