Operational Amplifier, Types of Op Amp ICs and Characters

Various types and advantages of each offered by each component manufacturer to captivate the hearts of audio lovers. This is often done by audio hobbyists. Fiddling with and experimenting mutually components to get the best sound possible.

In the market, there are many choices of components, from the cheap to very expensive. The endpoint is a personal taste that determines the choice. Unfortunately, more and more standard components have decreased in quality. Instead of improving but getting worse. Finding quality components is difficult and expensive.
Op Amp IC NE5532  LM833 TL072 LF353 CA3140 CA3240 OPA2134 LM324 AD823 JRC4558 4558

Prioritize replacing active components that directly process audio signals such as ICs and transistors. Because the upgrade effect is likely to sound more real. After that, it is just a passive component that does not directly process signals such as power supply, tin, resistor, condensator, transformer, and others. The effect on sound repairs is very small or even the difference is not heard directly.
Do not let you get stuck to replace passive components with prices that are so expensive while the main IC that processes electronic signals is ignored. Don't also get caught up in suggestions. The easiest upgrade is to replace the IC op-amp in the preamp. Because just pull the IC from the socket and install a new IC. Sometimes it needs to be accompanied by changing a few components such as a resistor to adjust a new IC with an existing system.
Dual Op-Amp

Not all op-amps have super specifications such as very high slew rates, very wide bandwidth, very low noise, very low THD, and others sound good. For the record, only 2-3V / µs slew rate is needed for the op-amp so that it can cover all sound frequencies.
It's just that because the sound power is mainly music that is different, it takes at least 3 times the standard.

After all, replacing the standard op-amps like 741, 4558 and LM324 with the better ones, even the "super" ones, actually made a messy sound. Because this type of op-amp requires a special power supply and can be very unstable. For example, a good standard op-amp like NE5532 requires a decoupled supply (usually ceramic or mica) of no more than 2 inches (a super op-amp is a closer). Unlike 4558 which can run quite smoothly without decoupled. So if you want to replace the IC, you should first look at the PCB design, don't just replace it. Here are some IC op-amps quoted from several sources.

LM833 (dual) = Flat with a pretty good musical dynamics.
4558D (dual) = good but boomy bass, vocals hoarse, treble blunt.
NE5532 (dual) = Flat with good vocals on the ears and clear treble. Details are very good, but for some people, the bass feels less.
TL072 (dual) = Quite noisy, but with good dynamics.
LF353 (dual) = A lot of sound at the middle frequency, but quite natural and detailed. Treble and bass feel soft.
CA3140 (single) = Special amps with MOSFET input. Vocal and treble sounds are pretty good in the ears. Unfortunately, the dual version (CA3240) is only produced for the industrial and military circles.
LM324 (quad) = Noise is quite audible. Poor detail and blunt treble.
OPA2134 (dual) = the favorite op-amp for audiophiles with excellent staging and depth of music, but with less detail and musical dynamics.
AD823 (dual) = Very detailed and very natural, great dynamics, with very clear bass and treble.

1600W Power Amplifier Class-G PCB Layout

The following is a PCB layout for a G-class power amplifier, previously here is a little explanation about class G power amplifiers, namely Class G classified as an analog amplifier which aims to improve the efficiency of B / AB class amplifiers. In class B / AB, the supply voltage is only one pair which is often denoted as + VCC and –VEE for example + 12V and –12V (or written with +/- 12volt). In class G amplifier, the supply voltage is made multilevel. Especially for applications that require high voltage power, so that the supply voltage is efficient, there are 2 or 3 different pairs. For example, there is a supply voltage of +/- 70 volts, +/- 50 volts and +/- 20 volts. The concept of class G Power Amplifier circuit as shown in figure 1-30. For example, for soft and low sound strings, the active pair is a supply voltage of +/- 20 volts. Then if needed to drive loud sound, the supply voltage can be switched to a maximum supply voltage of +/- 70 volts.

And here is a PCB Layout power amplifier 1600W Class-G Amp, you can also create or print this PCB yourself by downloading the Layout file in the form of a PDF file. End of posting.
1600W Power Amplifier Class-G PCB Layout

This Class G power amplifier can be supplied voltage up to 120VDC Symmetrical and at least 42VDC symmetrical. This power amplifier can produce power up to 1600W RMS on an 8 Ohm Load with a good and maximum power supply voltage to control this amplifier. In addition to the final transistor, it is also very influential, you can use the original Toshiba 2SC5200 / 2SA1943 or NJW0302 / NJW0281G transistors in order to get quality and maximum results.

Power Amplifier Class-D IRS20957 Behringer B215D

Class-D IRS20957 High Performance Amplifier
Class D Power Amplifier circuit is on the rise especially in recent years due to its very high efficiency and relatively cheap price and Advantages of Class D Power Amplifier Circuits

The advantages of class D power amplifiers are:
  • Efficiency on supply power requirements
  • Simple physical size
  • Cool design and very practical
  • The heat produced is very minimal
Class D audio amplifier is a switching amplifier or PWM as previously explained. By applying the Switching model it can reduce the power loss in the final amplifier and allow for the efficiency of 90% - 95%. The input audio signal is used to modulate the PWM carrier signal that drives the final amplifier. Before being fed to the speaker, the Low Pass Filter (LPF) is passed to eliminate the high-frequency PWM carrier.

And on this occasion I will share the schematic along with the PCB layout for the D-class power amplifier, the Behringer B215D schematic power amplifier you can see below:

Power Amplifier Class-D Behringer B215D Schematic and PCB
My above scheme taken directly from the original scheme of the BEHRINGER B215D or can view more details you can visit this link: http://schems.com/bmampscom/behringer/Behringer_B215D.pdf

And for PCB layout you can print it yourself because I also provide PDF files for PCB Power Amplifier Behringer B215D. PCB Layout with double layer boards:
Power Amplifier Class-D Behringer B215D PCB Layout
The PCB layout includes input balance, protection, and signal paneling. The components used are SMD packaged, specifically for IC IRS20957, you can buy the IC in the nearest electronic shop or online store. With cheap prices around 2 $ USD.

The amplifier uses 2 MOSFET transistors for the final and uses LPF with a 22uH core. For the power supply, you can use a power supply with a voltage of 50V - 90VDC with a current of at least 10Ampere. And the target power that can be produced by this amplifier is 600W RMS.

How to Calculate SMPS Transformer - Formula

How to Calculate SMPS Transformer - Formula
Some people may still be confused about how the rules for the SMPS transformer or commonly called ferrite transformers.

Previously there were several rules for selecting wire diameters based on the frequencies used.
AWG Cable transformer SMPS
After knowing the wire that is used based on the frequency of the MOSFET driver that is used now we see first the formula determines the primary winding (Np).
How to Calculate SMPS Transformer - Formula
Npri = primary winding
Vin = Effective Input Voltage
f = frequency
Bmax = maximum flux density 1200 - 2000
Ac = Effective Cross Sectional Area (see datasheet of each type of transformer core (example EI33 = 1.19, ETD39 = 1.25).

For example, the above formula is specifically for push-pull topology.

For example, I want to make an inverter transformer with specifications:
Effective Vinput = 12v
Minimum Vinput = 10,5v
Max output = 330v
Normal Vout = 220v

Driver frequency = 50KHz or 50000Hz
then the primary (Np) and secondary (Ns) are?
I previously set the Bmax I want to use is 1600 (range Bmax 1200-2000) and uses EI33 core type with Ac 1.19

Np = (12v x100000000) / (4x50000x1600x1,19)
Np = 3.15 my turn rounds to 3 turns

check the Bmax value again not to be less than or more than the adjusted range above. then if I turn rounds into 3 (Np = 3).
How to Calculate SMPS Transformer - Formula Bmax

Bmax = (12v x100000000) / (4x50000x3x1,19)
Bmax = 1680 (still in the range 1200-2000)

Now we calculate Primary Turn (Ns). because the output voltage can be adjusted or stabilized by setting the percentage duty cycle, if there is a voltage input drop to a minimum of 10.5v, the duty will increase to a maximum of 98% to maintain normal output stability at 220v or at least above 200v. For that N = 330v / (10,5v x 98% duty) = 32 so
Ns = N x Np
Ns = 32 x 3
Ns = 96 turns
How to winding SMPS Transformator

To optimize the voltage-current, you can double the number of wires in accordance with the power and capacity of the bobbin.
Suppose you make a transformer with an output power of 300 watts, then 300watt / 220v = 1.4Amper and see the wire that can be used with a 50KHz frequency in the AWG table above. for example the wire used is 0.5mm then 1.4 Amp / 0.5 = 2.8 or rounded down or upward to be 2 or 3 double wire and of course the coil must be 2 or 3 times more primary wire used than secondary because Vin 12v then 300w / 12v = 25A so that the primary transformer wire does not overheat it must be joined into several wires in accordance with the bobbin ability or the capacity of the transformer bobbin.
