Audio Power Amp Reference Design offers scalable output.

Press Release Summary:

With power range from 25-500 W, IRAUDAMP7 reference design offers scalability on single-layer PCB for Class D audio amplifiers above 25 W per channel. Two-channel, 120 W, half-bridge design of IRAUDAMP7S provides 91% efficiency at 120 W in Class D stage, 8 ohms, and THD+N of 0.005% at 1 kHz, 60 W, 8 ohms. While IRAUDAMP7D features IRS2092 protected digital audio driver IC in DIP16 package together with through-hole components, IRAUDAMP7S features IRS2092S in SOIC package with SMT components.

IR Introduces 25W to 500W Scalable Output Power Class D Audio Power Amplifier Reference Design

EL SEGUNDO, Calif. - International Rectifier, IR (NYSE: IRF), a world leader in power management technology, today introduced the IRAUDAMP7 reference design for Class D audio amplifiers above 25W per channel including home theaterre applications, musical instruments and car entertainment. With a power range from 25W to 500W, the IRAUDAMP7 offers a high degree of scalability on a single layer PCB. The IRAUDAMP7S two-channel, 120W half-bridge design provides 91 percent efficiency at 120W in Class D stage, eight ohms, and a THD+N of 0.005 percent at 1 kHz, 60W, eight ohms, (both typical). The IRAUDAMP7D features IR's IRS2092 protected digital audio driver IC in a DIP16 package together with through-hole components while the IRAUDAMP7S features the IRS2092S in an SOIC package with surface-mount components. Both reference designs are paired with the IRFI4019H-117P digital audio dual MOSFET to further enhance scalability, and are wave solder process compatible. "The IRAUDAMP7 provides designers with quick and easy scalability. For example, a 125W design can be functionally scaled to 60W within minutes simply by changing seven of the 50 components required on a single layer board," said Jun Honda, IR's systems engineering manager, Energy Saving Products. The IRAUDAMP7 incorporates critical protection features including over-current protection, over-voltage protection, under-voltage protection, DC-protection, and over-temperature protection. Housekeeping functions include a +/- 5V supply for analog signal processing for the preamplifier and a +12V supply (Vcc) referenced to -B for the Class D gate driver stage. More information is available at the International Rectifier website at Availability and Pricing: The IRAUDAMP7 reference design is available immediately. Pricing is US $199 each and is subject to change. About International Rectifier International Rectifier (NYSE:IRF) is a world leader in power management technology.
