AN69133 describes how the WaveDAC8 Component works and how to use it to generate either predefined or custom waveforms. The WaveDAC8 uses DMA to generate continuous waveforms that require no CPU overhead. Several example projects are included to show simple waveform generation, frequency shift keying (FSK) modulation, and DTMF tone generation with minimal hardware and user code.
