FDA901 – New Class D 4x50W Power Audio Amplifier IC for High Fidelity Car Audio Systems
STMicroelectronics leverages the expertise of the Alps Alpine Co. Ltd. and introduced the new FDA901 Class-D Audio amplifier IC for multi-function, high fidelity car audio systems that combine the high efficiency of a Class-D amplifier with the high-quality sound of ST’s class-AB amplifiers. The new amplifier IC was designed with low residual noise, a low distortion ratio, a flat frequency response achieved through feedback technology, and low EMI levels.
FDA901 Class-D Audio amplifier IC can deliver high purity audio performance by minimizing drop out of audio signals. The IC is designed with multiple self-diagnostics and other advanced functions to measure real-time speaker current and impedance, these factors were prized in the next-generation car audio market for diagnostics and to compensate for loudspeaker imperfections. The IC allows the designers to deliver both extremely high-quality sound and very innovative features to improve sound fidelity.
