An Integrated 40W Analog Input Class D Amplifier with Improved Clipping Recovery and Reduced Turn-on Transients
A 20W per channel, analog input, class D amplifier is presented. This paper includes an overview of the design, stability equations and describes several innovations used to improve the performance of the device. Among these innovations is a novel Operational Transconductance Amplifier (OTA) input structure that greatly reduces pops and clicks at startup and a special clipping recovery circuit that reduces clipping distortion. The design tradeoffs and the silicon results are also presented.
