The AVR® DA MCU family of microcontrollers is based on the AVR architecture and brings a DAC peripheral equipped with 10-bit resolution and high-drive capabilities, helping the user to generate precise analog voltages and use them internally or externally on a physical pin.

This technical brief describes how the 10-bit DAC works on the AVR DA microcontroller family, covering the following use cases:

Note: The code examples were developed on AVR128DA48 Curiosity Nano.
