LM3886 Audio Amplifier 1 x 108W

LM3886general description: According to National Semiconductor, the LM3886 is a high performance 150W Audio Power Amplifier with Mute. The performance of the LM3886, say NS, utilizing its Self Peak Instantaneous Temperature (°Ke) (SPIKe) protection circuitry, puts in a class above discrete and hybrid amplifiers by providing an inherently, dynamically protected Safe Operating Area (SOA). The LM3886T comes in an 11 (staggered-) lead non-isolated TO220 package.
We put the LM3886T schematic and an existing printed circuit board as a basis. For test purposes, the prototype of the amplifier was powered by a stabilized ±35-V supply. A maximum undistorted output power of about 63 watts into 8 ohms was obtained at a drive level of 1 Vrms. Dropping the load impedance to 4 ohms pushed the output power to no less than 108 watts. In practice, these power levels can be taken to mean ‘music power’, but do remember that the amplifier will not normally be powered from a regulated supply!


Great attent…
