In previous chapters we have seen how transducers are used to relate real-world signals and their electrical analogues. Frequently, in order that such signals can be generated or accepted by digital systems, data converters are required. These are known as digital-to-analogue coverters (DAC) and analogue-to-digital converters (ADC).
