Digital-to-analog converters (DACs), referred to as decoders in communications terms, are devices by which digital processors communicate with the analog world. Although DACs are used as key elements in analog-to-digital converters (ADCs), they find numerous applications as stand-alone devices from CRT display systems and voice=music synthesizers to automatic test systems, waveform generators, digitally controlled attenuators, process control actuators, and digital transmitters in modern digital communications systems.
