TI Releases New 2.1MHz Class-D Amplifier for Automotive Audio Systems
TI’s four-channel amplifier delivers high-resolution audio in a compact package
Texas Instruments has 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
- Reduces electromagnetic interference (EMI): Switching above the AM band eliminates the need for
complex avoidance schemes and eases electromagnetic compatibility (EMC) designs while enabling the system
to meet Comité International Spécial des Perturbations Radioélectriques (CISPR) 25 Class 5 EMC requirements.
- Supports low impedance: Maintains stable audio playback while driving low impedance loads of 2 ohms.
- Advanced AC load diagnostics and line driver mode: The TAS6424-Q1 provides detailed on-chip phase and
impedance measurements that designers can use to configure the device with various outputs,
such as woofer, tweeter and line-level connections.
- Enhanced audio quality: Improves distortion, power-supply rejection and
dynamic response with high-frequency switching.
- Lower noise: An integrated digital-to-analog converter helps deliver a low system output noise
of 42 uVrms for automotive designs like external amplifiers and head units.
- Better thermal performance: Reduces power dissipation by as much as 60 percent compared to
Class-AB amplifiers, greatly reducing the need for fans or large heat sinks.
