I'm using the 32F334C8 Pa4 dac1_out1 channel.However, buffer is not working. Here is my code, 

void DAC_Config(void)
  DAC_InitTypeDef  DAC_InitStructure;

  /* Configure DAC1 OUT1 ******************************************************/ 
  /* GPIO Periph clock enable */
  /* Configure PA4 (DAC1_OUT1) as analog */
  GPIO_InitStructure.GPIO_Pin =  GPIO_Pin_4;
  GPIO_InitStructure.GPIO_Mode =   GPIO_Mode_AF;
  GPIO_InitStructure.GPIO_OType = GPIO_OType_PP;
  GPIO_InitStructure.GPIO_Speed = GPIO_Speed_50MHz;
  GPIO_InitStructure.GPIO_PuPd = GPIO_PuPd_NOPULL;
  GPIO_Init(GPIOA, &GPIO_InitStructure);

  /* DAC1 Periph clock enable */
  RCC_APB1PeriphClockCmd(RCC_APB1Periph_DAC1, ENABLE);
  /* DAC1 deinitialize */
  /* Fill DAC InitStructure */
  DAC_InitStructure.DAC_Trigger = DAC_Trigger_None;
  DAC_InitStructure.DAC_Buffer_Switch = DAC_BufferSwitch_Disable  ; // DAC_BufferSwitch_Enable;
  DAC_InitStructure.DAC_WaveGeneration = DAC_WaveGeneration_None;
  DAC_InitStructure.DAC_LFSRUnmask_TriangleAmplitude = DAC_LFSRUnmask_Bit0;
  /* DAC Channel1 Init */
  DAC_Init(DAC1, DAC_Channel_1, &DAC_InitStructure);
//     DAC_Init(DAC2, DAC_Channel_1, &DAC_InitStructure);
  /* Enable DAC Channel1 */
  DAC_Cmd(DAC1, DAC_Channel_1, ENABLE);
  /* Set DAC Channel1 DHR register: DAC1_OUT */
 // DAC_SetChannel1Data(DAC1, DAC_Align_12b_R, (uint16_t)CurrentSenseTab[0]);  

I think i can't open the buffer because i always see voltage at PA4 out pin. In programming manual i found that:

The DAC1 channel 1 comes with an output buffer that can be used to reduce the outputimpedance on DAC1_OUT1 output, and to drive external loads directly without having toadd an external operational amplifier.

I hope i'll solve that problem. Thanks
