What is an Analog Data Converter?

Data conversion is the alteration of computer data from one format to another. Data is encoded several ways throughout a computer environment. The conversion may require processing by using a special conversion program or may involve a complex process of going through intermediary stages. An analog to digital converter converts analog (continuously variable) signals into digital (multi-level) signals without altering their essential content. Digital to analog converting is a process where digital signals that have a few defined states are turned into analog signals, which theoretically have an infinite number of states. A digital to analog converter is an electronic device which converts a digital code to an analog signal such as a current, voltage, or electric charge.

Types of Analog Data Converters

There are several different kinds of analog data converters suitable for programming at Future Electronics. We stock many of the most common types categorized by several parameters including Resolution, Supply Voltage, Interface, Number of Channels, Power Consumption and packaging type. Our parametric filters will allow you to refine your search results according to the required specifications.

Analog Data Converters from Future Electronics

Future Electronics has a wide range of programmable analog data converters from several manufacturers. Once you decide if you need analog to digital converters, digital to analog converters or special function converters, you will be able to choose from their technical attributes and your search results will be narrowed to match your specific analog data converter application needs.

We deal with several manufacturers such as austriamicrosystems, Microchip, Exar, NXP and Wolfson Microelectronics, among others. You can easily refine your analog data converter product search results by clicking your preferred analog data converter brand from the list of manufacturers below.

Applications for Analog Data Converters:

Several items use analog data converters. These include precision measurement and sensor conditioning, digital potentiometers, software radio, digital audio, multi-channel data acquisition systems, digital video and display electronics and IF sampling, direct digital synthesis and precision analog microcontrollers. They can be found in the industrial, energy, medical, consumer, communications, telecommunications and security & defence fields.

Choosing the Right Analog Data Converter:

With the parametric search, when looking for the right analog data converters, you can filter the results by category. We carry the following categories of analog data converters:

  • Analog to Digital Converters
  • Digital to Analog Converters
  • Special Function Converters

Once you choose the analog data converter category, you can narrow them down by various attributes: by resolution, supply voltage, interface and power consumption to name a few. You will be able to find the right analog to digital, digital to analog or special function converters using these filters.

Analog Data Converters in Production Ready Packaging or R&D Quantities

If the quantity of analog data converters you require is less than a full reel, we offer to our customers several of our programmable analog data converters in tray, tube or individual quantities that will help you avoid unneeded surplus.

Future Electronics also offers clients a unique bonded inventory program designed in order to eliminate potential problems that can arise from an unpredictable supply of products that could contain raw metals and products with erratic or long lead times. Talk with your nearest Future Electronics branch and find out more on how you and your company can avoid possible shortages.
