    I want to run a 50v dc motor but i have only 5v coming out from my DAQ. Is there a way i can build a transistor circuit to run this motor. Thanks

    What is the current requirement of the motor? By "run", do you mean on - off, direction control, or all of that plus speed control?

    But D to A converters usually have a tiny current capability.
