>Question from help line.
There are a number of ways to get an analog output.
The first is to use HWPWM and then filter that with a simple RC filter. While
this won't be the most accurate and depending on your filter may ripple a bit,
but in many cases its a pretty effective method.
The ARMweb has an integral D/A which is fairly simple to program. Enable the
PINSEL register and load values into DACOUT registers (details in the user
Next would be to add an external serial D/A. An LTC1448 is a good dual D/A part
and available in DIP packages.
Parallel devices are usable, but requires a lot of IOs.
To get a 4-20mA output, you would need a voltage to current converter. The
XTR110 is a dedicated device for this, or you can use various op amp circuits.
