The first 2.1-MHz Class-D audio amplifier specifically designed for automotive applications has been developed by Texas Instruments (TI). Supporting high-resolution 96kHz digital input, the compact TAS6424-Q1 enables high-fidelity audio with low distortion in automotive infotainment applications.
The TAS6424-Q1 enables the use of smaller external filters and eliminates up to 18 external components to reduce system size and cost compared to existing Class-D solutions. With maximum output power of 75W per channel, the device features the industry’s highest switching rate and is the only audio amplifier that switches above the AM band.
Key features and benefits of the TAS6424-Q1 Class-D audio amplifier:
Tools and support to jump-start design
The PurePath Console graphical user interface is available to help designers easily configure the TAS6424-Q1. To simulate and optimise the device, designers can download an IBIS model or request a TAS6424-Q1 evaluation module.
The TAS6424-Q1 is available now in a PowerPAD thermally enhanced shrink small-outline package (HSSOP) from the TI store and authorised distributors.
