Brief about PAM8403 Module

The PAM8403 is a 2-channel, 3W, class-D audio amplifier. The internal circuit diagram of the PAM8403 Module is shown below. The new filterless architecture allows the device to drive the speaker directly, requiring no low-pass output filters. With the same numbers of external components, the efficiency of the PAM8403 is much better than that of Class-AB cousins. As shown in circuit diagram output speakers connects to ± OUT_L and ± OUT_R directly. INL and INR pins are used for left and right channel input. These pins are connected through a 0.47µf ceramic capacitor to reduce noise caused by the power supply coupling into the output drive signal. The recommended operating voltage for PAM8403 is 5.5V.
