This post explains for the radio amplifier. A Class AB car radio amplifier is a type of audio amplifier circuit commonly used in car audio systems to amplify the low-level audio signals from sources like radios, CD players, or smartphones before driving the speakers in the vehicle. The term “Class AB” refers to the amplifier’s operating class, which is a classification of amplifier design based on the conduction angle of its output transistors.
The Part Number is YD7377.
The function of this semiconductor is 2 x 30W, POWER AMPLIFIER.
The package is SIP 15 Pin Type

The YD7377 is a new technology class AB car radio amplifier able to work either in DUAL
BRIDGE or QUAD SINGLE ENDED configuration.
The exclusive fully complementary structure of the output stage and the internally fixed gain guarantees the highest possible power performances with extremely reduced component count. The
on-board clip detector simplifies gain compression operation. The fault diagnostics makes it possible to detect mistakes during car radio set assembly and wiring in the car. […]
1. Class AB Operation: Class AB amplifiers are known for combining the features of both Class A and Class B amplifiers. They operate in a mode where one set of transistors (the “push” transistors) conducts for part of the input signal cycle, while another set (the “pull” transistors) conducts for the opposite part. This allows for better efficiency and reduced distortion compared to pure Class A or Class B amplifiers.
1. SOFT SHORT AT TURN-ON
2. OVERRATING CHIP TEMPERATURE WITH SOFT THERMAL LIMITER
3. LOAD DUMP VOLTAGE SURGE
4. VERY INDUCTIVE LOADS
5. FORTUITOUS OPEN GND
6. REVERSED BATTERY
Easy Single Ended to Bridge Transition :
The change from single ended to bridge configurations is made simply by means of a short circuit across the inputs, that is no need of further external components.
