Where to use a TDA7297 amplifier?

The TDA7297 is a Class AB dual channel audio amplifier. It is available in compact 15-pin package and can operate with 6V to18V making it suitable for consumer electronics like TV, Radio, Home theater etc. Audio amplifier circuits can also be made using simple op-amps, but if you need higher volume that is loud enough for a room then this power audio amplifier is will be the best choice. This IC can deliver up to 30W (15+15) of output power, so you can run two 4Ω speakers at 15W each for stereo audio quality. 

Another advantage of TDA7297 is it requires minimum external components to get it running. If you are looking for higher wattage amplifier then check out TDA7294 which can output 100W power. 

 

How to use TDA7297?

The TDA7297 is a popular easy to use audio amplifier IC. The IC is a dual bridge amplifier, meaning it requires both left and right audio input to provide a stereo output. The output is also split into channel 1 and channel 2 each capable of driving 15W speakers. Each channel also has an inverting and non-inverting output for connecting the positive and negative terminal if the speaker. The typical application diagram is shown below. 

TDA7279 Application Circuit Diagram

As you can see the IC requires only minimal number of components like few extra capacitor and resistor making it easy for designers to adapt it into compact portable applications like handheld radios or Bluetooth Speakers. Further the minimal requirement of components also reduces the BOM cost. The IC also comes in with a built-in mute function and stand-by function. The mute function eliminates the requirements of additional components while the stand-by can be used to conserver battery. Normally a microprocessor is used to control the mute and stand-by features based on the input from the user.
