Product Details

The AD916x API library is a collection of APIs that provide a consistent interface the family of AD916x ADI High Speed Converter DAC devices. The library is a software layer that sits between the application and the DAC hardware. The library is intended to serve two purposes: 

  1. Provide the application with a set of APIs that can be used to configure DAC hardware without the need for low-level register access. This makes the application portable across different revisions of the hardware and even across different hardware modules. 

  2. Provide basic services to aid the application in controlling the DAC module, such as interrupt service routine, DAC high-level control and status information. 

The driver does not, in any shape or form, alter the configuration or state of DAC module on its own. It is the responsibility of the application to configure the part according to the required mode of operation, poll for status, etc... The library acts only as an abstraction layer between the application and the hardware.
