Short for digital-to-analog converter, DAC is a device (usually a single chip) that converts digital data into analog signals. Modems require a DAC to convert data to analog signals that can be carried by telephone wires. Video adapters also require DACs, called RAMDACs, to convert digital data to analog signals that the monitor can process.
