Automotive, 3.1W, Mono, Analog Input Class-AB Audio Amplifier

April 24, 2020 by Paul Shepard

The TPA6211T-Q1 from Texas Instruments is a 3.1W mono fully-differential amplifier designed to drive a speaker with at least 3Ω impedance while consuming only 20mm2 total printed-circuit board (PCB) area in most applications.

The device operates from 2.5V to 5.5 V, drawing only 4mA of quiescent supply current. The TPA6211T-Q1 is available in the space-saving 8-pin HVSSOP package.

The device includes features such as an 80 dB supply voltage rejection ratio from 20Hz to 2kHz, improved RF rectification immunity, small PCB area, and a fast start-up with minimal pop makes the TPA6211T-Q1 device suited for emergency call applications.

Additionally, the device supports low-power needs in infotainment and cluster applications, such as cluster chimes or driver notification.
