Maxim – Digital Class D speaker amplifiers significantly simplify design (MAX98355 / MAX98356)Sep 27 2012 - [More Articles]
Maxim Integrated Products has introduced two digital-input Class D power amplifiers that simplify designs, eliminate complicated programming, reduce noise, and hasten time to market. The MAX98355 (pulse-code modulation, PCM) and MAX98356 (pulse-density modulation, PDM) offer best-in-class clock jitter tolerance in Class D audio amplifiers and deliver superior audio quality, says the company.
Audio devices can now be simplified because ‘unique’ internal circuitry in the MAX98355 / MAX98356 detects the input clock and automatically calculates the sample rate. This reduces complicated programming and the need for system software support.More news from Maxim
