180W + 180W Power Supply Audio Power Amplifier ICs


The STK412-000 series are class H audio power amplifier hybrid ICs that feature a built-in shift power supply circuit. These ICs provide high efficiency audio power amplification by controlling (switching) the supply voltage supplied to the power transistors according to the detected level of the input audio signal. 

Pin compatible IC series that covers power ratings from 50 W × 2 channels to 180 W × 2 channels at 0.7 or 0.8% THD, 20 Hz to 20 kHz. This allows the use of a common PCB for all output classes. The pin arrangement is also unified with that of the three-channel STK413-000 series. This means that PCBs designed for three-channel models can also be used for two-channel models. Miniature package — 50 W/ch to 120 W/ch (THD = 0.8%, f = 20 Hz to 20 kHz): 64 × 36.5× 8.5 mm* — 150 W/ch to 180 W/ch (THD = 0.7%, f = 20 Hz to 20 kHz): 78 × 44× 9 mm* * Not including the IC pins. Allowable load shorted time: 0.3 sCircuit Diagram:

Class-H high-output voltage level line driver

General Description: The TDA8576T is a two channel class-H high-output voltage line driver for use in car audio applications. The line driver operates as a non-inverting amplifier with a gain of 6 dB and a single-ended output. Due to the class-H voltage lifting principle the voltage swing over the load is more than the supply voltage. With a supply voltage of 9 V the output voltage swing over the load will be more than 14 V (peak-to-peak). The TDA8576T is available in a SO16 package. Line drivers are necessary in car audio systems in which the power amplifiers are driven by long cables. The signal-to-noise ratio of these car audio systems is improved by using the TDA8576T class-H high-output level line driver. The high-output level of TDA8576T enables a reduction of the gain of the power amplifier resulting in an improvement of the power amplifier performance. Circuit Diagram: Datasheet for TDA8576:Download
