Mono Amplifiers drive 16-32 ohm speakers and earpieces.
Press Release Summary:
Models TS419 and TS421 operate from supply of 2 V and draw max of 2.5 mA. Standby current consumption can be as little as 10 nA. Amplifiers are available with external gain configuration or with fixed gain of 6, 12, or 18 dB. Signal to noise ratio is typically 98 dB with 5 V supply. Offered in MiniSO-8 and DFN8 packages, amplifiers include On/Off click reduction circuitry and are suited for cellular and cordless phones, PDAs, and other portable appliances.
Original Press Release:
Mono Amplifier from STMicroelectronics Saves Space in Portable Devices
Earpiece amp runs off 2V supply
Geneva, September 26, 2003 - STMicroelectronics (NYSE: STM) has introduced a pair of compact mono audio amplifiers for driving 16 to 32O speakers and ear-pieces in cellular and cordless phones, personal digital assistants and other portable appliances.
The TS419 and TS421 are available in space-saving MiniSO-8 and DFN8 packages. The parts will operate from a supply of just 2V and draw a maximum of 2.5mA. Standby current consumption can be as little as 10nA. Standby mode can be active high for the TS419 or active low for the TS421.
The parts can be ordered with an external gain configuration or with fixed gain of 6, 12, 18 dB (reducing the need for external components). They also have On/Off click reduction circuitry. These products are now available in 1k quantities at prices ranging from $.37 to $.41 depending upon configuration and package type.
With a Vcc of 5V the parts offer a typical output power of 295mW into 16O, at a total harmonic distortion plus noise (THD + N) figure of 1% maximum. With a 32O load, output power is 207mW.
With a Vcc of 3.3V the parts offer a typical output power of 113mW into 16O, at a total harmonic distortion plus noise (THD + N) figure of 1% maximum. With a 32O load, output power is 81mW.
The signal to noise ratio for the parts is typically 98dB(A) with a 5V supply. The power supply rejection ratio (PSRR) figure typically 56dB at 1kHz, with the inputs grounded.
