NAME
mcp48x1dac -- Microchip 48x1 digital to analog converter
SYNOPSIS
mcp48x1dac* at spi? slave ? flags N
DESCRIPTION
The mcp48x1dac driver supports the MCP48x1 family of digital to analog converters. The digital values to be converted to analog signal are passed through the sysctl(8) node. The driver reports the current voltage output on the chip's DAC channel through the envsys(4) API. It calculates these values assuming that internal 2.048V reference voltage (Vref) is used. The following table shows the supported chips. The type of the chip can be selected with the flags argument in the config file. Designation Resolution flags MCP4801 8 bits 0 MCP4811 10 bits 1 MCP4821 12 bits 2
SYSCTL VARIABLES
The following sysctl(3) variables are provided: machdep.mcp48x1dac0.data Defines digital data to be converted into analog signal. This value is interpreted literally and sent to the DAC without any conversion. Refer to the chip datasheet for more information. machdep.mcp48x1dac0.gain When set to 1 it enables 2x output gain on the DAC channel. The default value is 0.
