High efficiency, stereo Class-D audio amplifier
The SSM2380 is a fully integrated, high efficiency, stereo Class-D audio amplifier designed for mobile phone applications , mp3 players and other audio applications that require low output power . This class D audio amplifier circuit requires few external components and operates from a single 2.5 V to 5.5 V supply.
SSM2380 audio amplifier circuit is capable of delivering 2 W of continuous output power with <1% THD + N driving a 4 ohms load from a 5.0 V supply, or 1.4 watts of continuous output power on a 8 ohms load .
The SSM2380 features a highly flexible I2C interface with many useful settings. Using the I2C control interface, the gain of SSM2380 can be selected from 1dB to 24 dB + Mute in 47 steps with no external components Other features accessed from the I2C interface are: independent L/R channel shutdown, variable ultra-low EMI emission control mode, Automatic Level Control (ALC) for high quality speaker protection, and Stereo-to-Mono mixing operation.
The SSM2380 features a high efficiency, low noise modulation scheme that requires no external LC output filters.
It operates with 93% efficiency at 1.4 W into 8 ohms or 85% efficiency at 2W into 4 ohms from a 5.0 V supply and has an SNR of >100 dB.
Main features of the SSM2380 audio amplifier are : highly configurable I2C interface , stereo amplifier configuration , stereo-to-mono mixer option via I2C control , 93% efficiency at 5.0 V, 1.4 W into 8 ohms speaker , >100 dB signal-to-noise ratio (SNR) , single-supply operation from 2.5 V to 5.5 V , 20 nA ultralow shutdown current , short-circuit and thermal protection , pop-and-click suppression.
