SKU_DFR1073_2_Channel_15bit_I2C_to_0-10V_DAC WIKI


DAC series modules are a range of products that can be controlled through I2C or PWM signals to generate voltage or current output signals. They possess the capability to produce a variety of analog voltage or current signals, including 0-5V, 0-10V, 0-2.5V, 0-VCC, and 0-25mA.

An analog quantity refers to the continuous variation of voltage magnitude (or current magnitude) within a specific range. Due to its stability, long transmission distance, and ease of use, it has found widespread application in the field of industrial automation control, including:

This series of DAC products not only offers a variety of output signal ranges, but also provides three selectable resolutions: 8-bit, 12-bit, and 15-bit. It allows for the choice of either single-channel or dual-channel configurations, and multiple modules can be cascaded to form a multi-channel output. When coupled with Arduino controllers, Raspberry Pi, STM32, and similar controllers, it finds application in various automation control scenarios, including:

The following table presents the functional parameters of each DAC product for reference in the selection process.

DFR1073-GP8413(2-Channel 15-bit I2C to 0-5V/10V DAC Module)


This is a 2-channel DAC module with I2C communication, a resolution of 15-bit, and 0.01% output voltage linearity error, capable of generating analog voltage outputs of 0-10V or 0-5V. The 0-10V or 0-5V voltage range is a standard driving method. It can be widely used in automation applications such as light adjustment, frequency converters, valve regulation, and pump control. This product can drive a variety of 0-10V or 0-5V controlled devices available in the market through Arduino programming.

The high precision and resolution of this module make it suitable for control scenarios that require higher signal accuracy, such as fine speed control or angle control.

The module features an onboard I2C address selection switch, allowing for the configuration of eight different I2C addresses. By cascading through I2C, it can be expanded to support 16 output channels.




Name Description Remarks
I2C Interface + Positive terminal of the power supply (3.3V-5V)
- Negative terminal of the power supply
I2C Address Selection Switch Address switching for I2C, refer to the demonstration code for address information
Voltage Signal Output Port VOUT0 Positive terminal of output voltage signal 0
VOUT1 Positive terminal of output voltage signal 1
GND Negative terminal of the output voltage signal



In this example, we will demonstrate the generation of different voltage values on two channels.

Input signal value range: 0-32767

Channel 0: Input value of 21457, resulting in an output voltage of 6.548V

Channel 1: Input value of 3210, resulting in an output voltage of 0.979V.
