Module Description
This learning module is provided by Work-Ready Electronics and is the first in a series of two modules that cover data conversion principles. The module reviews basic concepts and methods and provides an overview of the rationale, need, and terminology. The module also covers the fundamentals of DAC, introduces methods, describes the critical specifications, and introduces typical integrated circuits (ICs) and applications. Work-Ready Electronics modules are intended to be used either independently or integrated with current electronics curricula in college programs. This module is divided into three sections: Content, Knowledge Probes, and Learning Activities.

Module Contents:
The Content section includes two PDF documents titled Data Conversion, Part 1: Digital-to-Analog Conversion and Architecture, Operation, and Specifications. 

Two Knowledge Probes are included in this learning module. The Knowledge probes include learning objectives and a short quiz. Each Knowledge Probe corresponds to a topic covered in the Content section.  

The Learning Activities section includes a Digital-to-Analog Conversion drill-down report, lab activity, and interactive simulation and related files. 

For orientation purposes Introduction.pdf is included as a separate attachment and offers a sample of the type of material included in this collection. 

Below is a list of the files contained within the .zip attachment. Files include .pdf and .ms8. The size of each file is included in parenthesis.
