This is one of the Stereo Audio Amplifier types.
Part Number : PAM8403, PAM8403QT, PAM8403DT
Function : Filterless 3W Class-D Stereo Audio Amplifier
Package : SOP-16 Type
Manufactures : Power Analog Microelectronics
The PAM8403 is a 3W, class-D audio amplifier. It offers low THD+N, allowing it to achieve high-quality sound reproduction. The new filterless architecture allows the device to drive the speaker directly, requiring no low-pass output filters, thus saving system cost and PCB area. With the same numbers of external components, the efficiency of the PAM8403 is much better than that of Class-AB cousins. It can extend the battery life, which makes it well-suited for portable applications.
1. Filterless, Low Quiescent Current and Low EMI
2. Low THD+N
3. Superior Low Noise
4. Efficiency up to 90%
5. Short Circuit Protection
6. Thermal Shutdown
7. Few External Components to Save the Space and Cost
