Hi everyone:
I would like to ask you how is it possible to change the output voltage from arduino (5 DCV) into a +/- 5 DCV?
Thank you for your help.

You can use a DC-to-DC converter to convert between almost any two DC voltages.

The TI PT5022 can produce -5V from +4.75V to +7V

Datasheet: http://www.ti.com/lit/ds/symlink/pt5021.pdf

Note that the MINIMUM current output is 1/4 Amp.

Thank you for your response. So, the problem I have is as follows.
I have an input voltage, for example 5 DCV, which will be applied for 2 minutes. So I would like to obtain an output voltage oscillating between -5 and +5 volts. How can I get that ? is it possible ?
I have no experience with electronics, but I need to do that for my school project.
Thank you.

I think you will have to be way more specific than "oscillating".  What frequency?  What waveform?

Hello my friend:
So the waveform can be for example v=5sin(2*pi*frequency), frequency=3Hz.
Using arduino is I think impossible to get an oscillating voltage between +/- 5 volts. Because the  arduino output voltage is from 0 to 5 volts.
Any data acquisition card has that possibility but is veeery expensive. I can't pay that :(
How can I resolve my problem using arduino?
or there is not solution?
thank you for your help my friend.
