Digital To Analog Converter (DAC)

[中文]

Overview

ESP32-S2 has two 8-bit DAC (digital to analog converter) channels respectively connected to GPIO17 (Channel 1) and GPIO18 (Channel 2). Each DAC channel can convert the digital value 0~255 to the analog voltage 0~Vref (The reference voltage 'Vref' here is input from the pin VDD3P3_RTC_IO, which ideally equals to the power supply VDD). The output voltage can be calculated as the following:

out_voltage = Vref * digi_val / 255

The DAC peripheral supports outputting analog signal in the following ways:

  1. Outputting a voltage directly. The DAC channel keeps outputting a specified voltage.

  2. Outputting continuous analog signal by DMA. The DAC converts the data in a buffer at a specified frequency.

  3. Outputting a cosine wave by the cosine wave generator. The DAC channel can output a cosine wave with specified frequency and amplitude.

For other analog output options, see Sigma-Delta Modulation and LED Control. Both modules produce high-frequency PWM/PDM output, which can be hardware low-pass filtered in order to generate a lower frequency analog output.

DAC File Structure

DAC file structure

DAC File Structure

Public headers that need to be included in the DAC application are listed as follows:

  • dac.h: The top header file of the legacy DAC driver, which should be only included in the apps which use the legacy driver API.

  • dac_oneshot.h: The top header file of the new DAC driver, which should be included in the apps which use the new driver API with one-shot mode.

  • dac_cosine.h: The top header file of the new DAC driver, which should be included in the apps which use the new driver API with cosine mode.

  • dac_continuous.h: The top header file of the new DAC driver, which should be included in the apps which use the new driver API with continuous mode.

Note

The legacy driver cannot coexist with the new driver. Include dac.h to use the legacy driver or dac_oneshot.h, dac_cosine.h, and dac_continuous.h to use the new driver. The legacy driver might be removed in the future.

Functional Overview

Resources Management

The DAC on ESP32-S2 has two channels. The channels have separate software resources and can be managed by dac_oneshot_handle_t, dac_cosine_handle_t, or dac_continuous_handle_t according to the usage. Registering different modes on a same DAC channel is not allowed.

Direct Voltage Output (One-shot/Direct Mode)

The DAC channels in the group can convert an 8-bit digital value into the analog when dac_oneshot_output_voltage() is called (it can be called in ISR). The analog voltage is kept on the DAC channel until the next conversion starts. To start the voltage conversion, the DAC channels need to be enabled first through registering by dac_oneshot_new_channel().

Continuous Wave Output (Continuous/DMA Mode)

DAC channels can convert digital data continuously via the DMA. There are three ways to write the DAC data:

  1. Normal writing (synchronous): Data can be transmitted at one time and kept blocked until all the data has been loaded into the DMA buffer, and the voltage is kept as the last conversion value while no more data is inputted. It is usually used to transport a long signal like an audio. To convert data continuously, the continuous channel handle need to be allocated by calling dac_continuous_new_channels() and the DMA conversion should be enabled by calling dac_continuous_enable(). Then data can be written by dac_continuous_write() synchronously. Refer to peripherals/dac/dac_continuous/dac_audio for examples.

  2. Cyclical writing: A piece of data can be converted cyclically without blocking, and no more operation is needed after the data are loaded into the DMA buffer. But note that the inputted buffer size is limited by the number of descriptors and the DMA buffer size. It is usually used to transport short signals that need to be repeated, e.g., a sine wave. To achieve cyclical writing, call dac_continuous_write_cyclically() after the DAC continuous mode is enabled. Refer to peripherals/dac/dac_continuous/signal_generator for examples.

  3. Asynchronous writing: Data can be transmitted asynchronously based on the event callback. dac_event_callbacks_t::on_convert_done must be registered to use asynchronous mode. Users can get the dac_event_data_t in the callback which contains the DMA buffer address and length, allowing them to load the data into the buffer directly. To use the asynchronous writing, call dac_continuous_register_event_callback() to register the dac_event_callbacks_t::on_convert_done before enabling, and then dac_continuous_start_async_writing() to start the asynchronous writing. Note that once the asynchronous writing is started, the callback function will be triggered continuously. Call dac_continuous_write_asynchronously() to load the data either in a separate task or in the callback directly. Refer to peripherals/dac/dac_continuous/dac_audio for examples.

On ESP32-S2, the DAC digital controller can be connected internally to the SPI3 and use its DMA for continuous conversion.

The clock sources of the DAC digital controller include:

  • dac_continuous_digi_clk_src_t::DAC_DIGI_CLK_SRC_APB supports frequency between 77 Hz to several MHz. It is the default clock which can also be selected by dac_continuous_digi_clk_src_t::DAC_DIGI_CLK_SRC_DEFAULT.

  • dac_continuous_digi_clk_src_t::DAC_DIGI_CLK_SRC_APLL supports frequency between 6 Hz to several MHz. However, it might be occupied by other peripherals, thus not providing the required frequency. In such case, this clock source is available only if APLL still can be correctly divided into the target DAC DMA frequency.

Cosine Wave Output (Cosine Mode)

The DAC peripheral has a cosine wave generator, which can generate cosine wave on the channels. Users can specify the frequency, amplitude, and phase of the cosine wave. To output the cosine wave, please acquire the DAC to cosine mode using dac_cosine_new_channel(), and then start the cosine wave generator by dac_cosine_start().

Currently, the clock source of the cosine wave generator only comes from RTC_FAST which can be selected by dac_cosine_clk_src_t::DAC_COSINE_CLK_SRC_RTC_FAST. It is also the default clock source which is the same as dac_cosine_clk_src_t::DAC_COSINE_CLK_SRC_RTC_DEFAULT.

Power Management

When the power management is enabled (i.e., CONFIG_PM_ENABLE is on), the system will adjust or stop the clock source of DAC before entering Light-sleep mode, thus potential influence to the DAC signals may lead to false data conversion.

When using DAC driver in continuous mode, it can prevent the system from changing or stopping the clock source in DMA or cosine mode by acquiring a power management lock. When the clock source is generated from APB, the lock type will be set to esp_pm_lock_type_t::ESP_PM_APB_FREQ_MAX. When the clock source is APLL (only in DMA mode), it will be set to esp_pm_lock_type_t::ESP_PM_NO_LIGHT_SLEEP. Whenever the DAC is converting (i.e., DMA or cosine wave generator is working), the driver guarantees that the power management lock is acquired after calling dac_continuous_enable(). Likewise, the driver will release the lock when dac_continuous_disable() is called.

IRAM Safe

By default, the DAC DMA interrupt will be deferred when the cache is disabled for reasons like writing/erasing Flash. Thus the DMA EOF interrupt will not get executed in time.

To avoid such case in real-time applications, you can enable the Kconfig option CONFIG_DAC_ISR_IRAM_SAFE which:

  1. Enables the interrupt being serviced even when cache is disabled;

  2. Places driver object into DRAM (in case it is linked to PSRAM by accident).

This allows the interrupt to run while the cache is disabled but comes at the cost of increased IRAM consumption.

Thread Safety

All the public DAC APIs are guaranteed to be thread safe by the driver, which means users can call them from different RTOS tasks without protection by extra locks. Notice that the DAC driver uses mutex lock to ensure the thread safety, thus the APIs except dac_oneshot_output_voltage() are not allowed to be used in ISR.

Kconfig Options

Note

Specially, on ESP32, the data bit width of DAC continuous data is fixed to 16 bits while only the high 8 bits are available, The driver will help to expand the inputted buffer automatically by default, you can also align the data to 16 bits manually by clearing CONFIG_DAC_DMA_AUTO_16BIT_ALIGN in menuconfig.

uint32_t desc_num

The number of DMA descriptor, at least 2 descriptors are required The number of descriptors is directly proportional to the max data buffer size while converting in cyclic output but only need to ensure it is greater than '1' in acyclic output Typically, suggest to set the number bigger than 5, in case the DMA stopped while sending a short buffer
