Analog to Digital converter also called as ADC or A-D Converter or A-to-D converter is a device or a Integrated Component (IC) that converts Analog Signal (normally voltage) into corresponding digital value. This digital value is proportional to the input Analog Signal,
Various ADC IC's are available in the market and selecting the right analog to Digital Converter for your application can be quite difficult process. Here are some of the important aspects that should be looked into while selecting right ADC :
Bandwidth i.e. Range of frequency that it can Measure.
Signal to noise ratio i.e how accurately it can measure a signal relative to the noise it introduces.
Resolution i.ethe smallest change in the value of an input signal that changes the value of the digital output by one count.
Communication Interface i.e Using which protocol the ADC will communicate with your circuit or your micro-controller.
What is DAC?
Digital to Analog Converter also called as DAC or D-A Converter or D-to-A Converter is a device that converts digital signal into corresponding Analog Signal. A DAC performs reverse function of ADC. Various aspect of DAC has to be considered while selecting the right one for your application.
