This article portrays the “other normal” sorts of DAQ I/O — gadgets, for example, Analog Outputs, Digital Inputs, Digital Inputs, Counter/Timers, and Special DAQ capacities, which covers such gadgets as Motion I/O, Synchro/Resolvers, LVDT/RVDTs, String Pots, Quadrature Encoders, and ICP/IEPE Piezoelectric Crystal Controllers. It likewise covers such themes as interchanges interfaces, timing, and synchronization capacities. 
Analog Outputs Analog or D/A yields are utilized for an assortment of purposes in data acquisition and control systems. To appropriately coordinate the D/A gadget to your application, it is important to consider an assortment of determinations, which are recorded and clarified beneath. 

Number of Channels 

As it’s a genuinely clear necessity, we won’t invest much energy in it. Ensure you have enough yields to take care of business. On the off chance that it’s conceivable that your application might be extended or adjusted, later on, you may wish to determine a system with a couple “safe” yields. In any event, make certain you can add yields to the system not far off without significant trouble. 
Resolution As with A/D channels, the resolution of a D/A yield is a key particular. The resolution depicts the number or scope of various conceivable yield states (regularly voltages or streams) the system is equipped for giving. This detail is all around given as far as “bits”, where the resolution is characterized as 2(# of bits). For instance, 8-bit resolution relates to a resolution of one section in 28 or 256. So also, 16-bit resolution relates to one section in 216 or 65, 536. At the point when joined with the yield go, the resolution decides how little an adjustment in the yield might be summoned. To decide the resolution, essentially separate the full-scale scope of the yield by its resolution. A 16-bit yield with a 0-10 Volt full-scale yield gives 10 V/216 or 152.6 microvolts resolution. A 12-bit yield with a 4-20 mA full scale gives 16 mA/212 or 3.906 uA resolution. 


Despite the fact that precision is frequently compared to resolution, they are not the same. An analog yield with a one microvolt resolution doesn’t really (or even regularly) mean the yield is precise to one microvolt resolution. Outside of sound yields, D/A system precision is commonly on the request of a couple LSBs. Be that as it may, it is critical to check this detail as not all analog yield systems are made equivalent. The most noteworthy and basic error commitments in analog yield systems are Offset, Gain/Reference, and Linearity errors.
