There's no Analog-to-Digital/Digital-to-Analog (AD/DA) function on the Raspberry Pi GPIO interface, which can restrict the use of certain components in your project. This High-Precision AD/DA Board allows you to add high-precision AD/DA functions to your Raspberry Pi!

Note: Sensors pictured but not included!


  • Standard Raspberry Pi 40-pin GPIO extension header
  • Onboard ADS1256, 8-channel 24-bit high-precision ADC (4ch differential input), 30ksps sampling rate
  • Onboard DAC8552, 2-ch 16-bit high-precision DAC
  • Onboard input interface via pin headers, for connecting analogue signal
    • the pinout is compatible with Waveshare sensor interface standard, easy to connect various analogue sensor modules
  • Onboard input/output interface via screw terminals, for connecting analogue/digital signal
  • Features AD/DA detect circuit, easy for signal demonstration


What's onboard?
