I think I've figured out that this DAC is a voltage type because according to its datasheet, but still a little uncertain.

Anyone can confirm this for me? Thanks

I haven't looked at the data sheet but your figure says 'output amp' and 'Vout'. Definitely voltage out. And the datasheet should spell it out (like in 'voltage output DAC').
