PIC24EP512GP202 D/A -- Does it exist?

The MICROCHIP ADVANCED PART SELECTOR indicates that the PIC24EP512GP202 contains 1 D/A, but the datasheet makes no mention of it.  Can anyone confirm whether it does or does not have a D/A converter?

    I can't confirm, but I would trust the datasheet over the MAPS database...
     

    This forum is mis-configured so it only works correctly if you access it via https protocol.
    The Microchip website links to it using http protocol. Will they ever catch on?

    Often, when MAPS shows a DAC on PIC24, it's "hidden" in the comparator, as is the case with your PIC.

    OK.  Looking in the Family Reference, under the Comparator section, I found this: "The CVREF output pin can be used as a simple Digital-to-Analog output..."
    So the DAC is actually the selectable comparator voltage reference output.

    Possibly not relevant in this case (I've not bothered to look at the documents myself) but be a little cautions about taking information from the FRM with respect to a specific MCU.
    The FRM is great in telling you in detail how to use all of the possibilities that occur within a family but you must also cross-check with the MCU data sheet that the specific device actually provides that functionality in the first place.
