Introduction to LM1875

The LM1875 is a 20W Class AB audio amplifier with a wide operating voltage and high bandwidth. The IC can driver 20W speakers with a maximum current of 4A and can also go to a maximum of 30W.  It can operate in both with single rail and dual rail power supply, and has some in-built protection features making it robust.

The LM1875 is breadboard friendly and hence can be easily tested using a breadboard. A sample application circuit for LM1875 is given below. The datasheet given at the bottom of this page consists of more details on this design.

Circuit using TDA2050 32W Audio Power Amplifier

 

LM1875 is a 5-pin Amplifier IC. The pin 5 and 3 are used to power the Amplifier IC, and the audio signal to be amplified is given in through pin 1 which is the non-inverting input. The amplified audio output can be obtained through pin 4. The values of the components given above are the values recommended by manufactures.

 

Applications

  • Used for Audio signal Amplification
  • Suitable for high power amplification
  • Capable of operating on dual/split power supply
  • Can be used to cascade audio speakers
