PSoC 5, 3 & 1 MCU

In our old plan,we change the Refence Voltage of DAC by using a Potentiometer to make the output adjustable.Now we want to change our plan by using PSOC3 ,but the VDAC have no ext. Refence function,I wander  if there is another way to get our goal .

   

PS:We need two independent VDAC output signals but one  Potentiometer .

   

Thanks.

The easiest approach would be to use an ADC to measure the voltage over the potentiometer and change the DAC accordingly. Since the DAC in a PSoC3 delivers a voltage referenced to GND I see no other chance to change its output.

Silen,

   

Why do you want to change the VDAC reference, is this for shifting offset or for changing gain or for both?

   

Depending on what you want, you could probably configure an OPAMP component to do the job.

If you are looking for a multiplying DAC you could use DAC trim register to effect a

   

limited solution.

   

 

   

Or take a look at this thread -
