Be careful with your second DAC Output, A lot of us are blowing out the DAC.

As most DACs will be connecting to amplifiers it would make sense to modify a future version of the board to include a series current limiting resistor to protect these two high value pins - high value as in there are only two of them andf or some, they are the main reason for buying a Due.

So then what kind of value resistor will protect the DAC ? <1kohm?

Not sure why you have started you post with a random selection of my profile and a response from another thread.

The most relevant topic to your question is this one -,139733.15.html

Have a look at the response towards then end of the post written by 'stimmer' - read it carefully because its based on another chip due to the limited information available on the actual chip used in the Due.
