AAC[edit]

Analog-to-Analog Conversion is the conversion of a continuous electrical signal from one form to another.

An example would be converting between the 60 Hz current of the US into the 50 Hz current of Europe.

ADC[edit]

Analog to digital

Used in power supplies

involves a transformer to change the voltage and diodes to recitfy the voltage.

(What?)

Analog to Digital Conversion is the process of making a computerized representation of some physical attribute in the real world. Turning a voltage into binary numbers is the handiest way to do this, the voltage could be manipulated by a microphone transducer, a potentiometer wiper, or the conductivity of prevarication.

DAC[edit]
