TI's four-channel amplifier delivers high-resolution audio quality in the smallest footprint
Texas Instruments (TI) introduced the first 2.1-MHz Class-D audio amplifier specifically designed for automotive applications. Supporting high-resolution 96-kHz 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 75 W 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 optimize the device, designers can download an IBIS model or request a TAS6424-Q1 evaluation module.
Package, availability and pricing
The TAS6424-Q1 is available now in a PowerPAD™ thermally enhanced shrink small-outline package (HSSOP) from the TI store and authorized distributors. Pricing is US$5.97 in 1,000-unit quantities.
