Is ADC DAC Pi what i need ?

I am trying to come up with a slim HMI with "plc", and none of the existing HMI panels with plc are small and or cheep enough.
So i am looking at Raspberry Pi. I need to have Analog out, and digital in/out
Analog out properly need to be 0 - 10v or 0 - 20 mA, standard for the equipment that need to be attached.
Now i am looking at this since Raspberry Pi do not have analog out by default.
This may be an option? could I use this board with something like:
I am new to Raspberry Pi, so i do not know what "fall pits" there are or what limitations are.
I don't think the ADC DAC Pi will work with either of those displays as they both use the SPI port and so does the ADC DAC Pi. You can only have one SPI device connected to the Raspberry Pi so there would be a conflict between the two expansion boards. The analogue out on the ADC DAC Pi also only goes up to 2.048 volts.
As for voltage i could make an "amplifyer" or something correct ? or use 2.048 V and add something that makes it 0.20 mA would propearly be the simplest.
Any sugestions would be aprisiated.
Texas Instruments do several I2C DACs, so it may be worth trying to find one that fits your needs and order some free samples to play with.
As the I2C port on the Raspberry Pi is 3.3 volts you may need to use a level shifter if you choose a DAC that works at a higher voltage.
and something like this for input ? or is there only one I2C also ?
