This incredibly small stereo amplifier is surprisingly powerful - able
to deliver 2 x 2.8W channels into 4 ohm impedance speakers (@ 10%
THD). Inside the miniature chip is a class D controller, able to run
from 2.7V-5.5VDC. Since the amp is a class D, it's incredibly
efficient (89% efficient when driving an 8 speaker at 1.5 Watt) -
making it perfect for portable and battery-powered projects. It has
built in thermal and over-current protection but we could barely tell
it got hot. This board is a welcome upgrade to basic "LM386" amps!
The inputs of the amplifier go through 1.0uF capacitors, so they are
fully 'differential' - if you don't have differential outputs, simply
tie the R- and L- to ground. The outputs are "Bridge Tied" - that
means they connect directly to the outputs, no connection to ground.
The output is a ~300KHz square wave PWM that is then 'averaged out' by
the speaker coil - the high frequencies are not heard. All the above
means that you can't connect the output into another amplifier, it
should drive the speakers directly.
Comes with a fully assembled and tested breakout board with 1.0uF
input capacitors. We also include a dual mini DIP switch for setting
the amplifier gain on the fly, 3.5mm screw-terminal blocks so you can
easily attach/detach your speakers, and some header in case you want
to plug it into a breadboard. You will be ready to rock in 15 minutes!
Speakers are not included, use any 4 ohm or 8 ohm impedance speakers.
