This example application shows how to use the DAC to generate a 1 KHz Sine or Sawtooth wave with a lookup table.
This example application shows how to use the DAC Peripheral library to generate a 1 KHz Sine or Sawtooth wave with lookup table. DAC starts conversion on a trigger from a timer period interrupt configured to occur at every 10 microseconds. In this application, the number of the DAC samples in a lookup table is 100.

Setting up SAM D11 Xplained Pro Evaluation Kit
- Connect an oscilloscope to monitor DAC pin PA02 (Pin 3 of the EXT1 header)
- Connect the Debug USB port on the board to the computer using a micro USB cable
- Build and Program the application using its IDE
- Observe a sine wave of 1 KHz frequency on DAC output pins
- Press switch to toggle the waveform shape from sine wave to sawtooth wave and back
- Refer to the below table for dac output pin and switch details:
|Board||DAC output pins||Switch Name|
