T25 - DSP Design Considerations in Application to Higher Performance Intelligent Digital Audio Amplifiers
Skip Taylor, D2Audio Corporation - Austin, TX, USA
There is a strong technological revolution in the world of audio amplification where traditional Class A/Class AB analog amplifiers are giving way to high-efficiency digital amplifiers with improved sound quality. This presentation discusses some of the legacy amplifier technology solutions and their application, and the key points audio design engineers need to pay attention to when transitioning to a digital amplifier system solution. Using advanced DSP technology, this new Class-D amplifier technology can lead to further performance improvement in higher power digital amplifier solutions and can provide a formidable competitor to the legacy Class AB analog solutions.
