French term or phrase: DAC
What is a DAC? Here is the context:

La mesure de la température est précise et nous n’avons plus besoin de potentiomètre pour régler la tension de référence : nous le faisons maintenant à l’aide d’un DAC.

Not sure about my translation of the phrase at all. Here is my translation:

The temperature measurement is accurate so we no longer require a potentiometer for reference tension regulation; we are using a DAC instead.
