Digital/Analog (D/A) board: zero-order hold. Other options are possible but the above are by far the most common.

Allows digital designs to be performed directly. Evaluating the stability of the discrete-time system ( C ( z ) and P ( z ) in feedback). Roy Smith: ECE 147b 5 : 1 Sample and hold systems Zero-order hold equivalence This is a reasonable model of a typical digital to analog (D/A) converter. At the sample-time, t = kT , the discrete input, u ( k ), is put on the output, u ( t ). This value is held constant for the entire sample period. So, u ( t ) = u ( k ) , for kT t &lt; kT + T.
