Resolution of DAC or ADC Solution

STEP 0: Pre-Calculation Summary
Formula Used
Resolution = Maximum Voltage/(2^(Bits for Digital Encoding)-1)
R = Vmax/(2^(n)-1)
This formula uses 3 Variables
Variables Used
Resolution - (Measured in Volt) - The resolution is defined as representing the number of volts between successive digital encodings in a ADC or DAC system.
Maximum Voltage - (Measured in Volt) - Maximum Voltage is the maximum voltage that the analog signal can assume.
Bits for Digital Encoding - Bits for Digital Encoding : number of bits available for digital encoding.
STEP 1: Convert Input(s) to Base Unit
Maximum Voltage: 7.5 Volt --> 7.5 Volt No Conversion Required
Bits for Digital Encoding: 6 --> No Conversion Required
STEP 2: Evaluate Formula
Substituting Input Values in Formula
R = Vmax/(2^(n)-1) --> 7.5/(2^(6)-1)
Evaluating ... ...
R = 0.119047619047619
STEP 3: Convert Result to Output's Unit
0.119047619047619 Volt --> No Conversion Required
0.119047619047619 0.119048 Volt <-- Resolution
