I am an electronics novice. pls forgive me if my questions
look silly to the gurus. I still don't get it. I did as
John suggested and got a stable 2.5v reference voltage,
then connect a 3k/2k voltage divider to it. When open
circuit, the output voltage is 1V, very nice. but once
I connect it to the DAC, the voltage drops to 0.77V
immediately. As a result, the dac is not working
as expected. the resistors available to me are just
the cheapest carbon resistors. That is why at the first
place I asked the question because I thought a simple
voltage divider is not going to work.

thanks in advance
