Audio CDs contain data in 16-bit stereo PCM format. (This is the type
of data that is stored -- it is not a file format, because audio CDs
don't contain "files".)
On your computer, WAV or AIFF files (and most other uncompressed audio
file formats) can be used to store data in this format.

Save your data as a 16-bit stereo WAV or AIFF file. Then use "Create
Audio CD" feature in your CD-burning software.
Check the manual for your CD-burning software for details.
