D/A converter: Digital to analog converter- an electronic circuit that has a digital input signal (distinct states) which is converted to an analog (continuously varying) output signal. A typical application of a D/A converter is in digital signal processing of audio signals for example in a CD player. The information is stored on the disc in digital form but must be converted to analog before reaching the output to be reproduced as sound.
