IDAC Switching in PSoC 3/5

Last Updated: March 14, 2011

What is the best way to switch on and off the IDAC to avoid voltage/current spikes on the output in PSoC 3/5?


The best way to avoid current or voltage spikes while turning off a DAC is to use the DAC bus, and through hardware write a 0 to the DAC to turn it off, and a non-zero value to turn it on.  Alternately, the DAC may be turned off by writing a 0 to the DAC register in firmware.
