We are given two voltages A and B between 0 and 5V. So how do I generate a smooth/continuous analog change in voltage from A to B in a predefined time? The current with that varying voltage is 1 ma or less. The output voltage value is described by a simple quadratic (aX^2)+(bx)+c, at time x seconds.
If that not possible using an Arduino - what is the nearest solution to it? It seems that it would require an RC circuit?
When I mean smooth/continous I mean it doesn't move in "digital steps" or to use an analogy with resistance instead of voltage - it would be like the way resistance changes when a potentiometer is turned between two places, in a given time, by hand.
A potential solution would be to make a circuit that generate arbitrary voltage between 0 and 5v, some how, at a point in time. For each subsequent small change in time, the change in time is constant, generate the desired voltage from a sketch. If the change of time is small and constant, will putting in a high pass RC filter work? Though I'm not sure of a circuit that can create an arbitrary voltage, or arbitrary voltage resolution or how good the RC filter approximates the quadratic smoothness. I don't know the answer.
