NXP Semiconductors Introduces Class-D Amplifier for Autos [Professional Services Close - Up]

(Professional Services Close - Up Via Acquire Media NewsEdge) NXP Semiconductors N.V. announced the TDF8599C, a new automotive stereo Class-D amplifier that targets sound systems in cars where high power output and efficiency are required.

In a release, NXP said the device offers a supply voltage range up to 48V.

NXP noted: "This enables extremely high output power and the flexibility for sound designers to drive high-ohmic load speakers. Such speakers can be lighter, smaller and more cost efficient, resulting in vibrant automotive sound for the best sensory experience in the car.

"With its audiophile-quality sound, the extremely robust TDF8599C Class-D amplifier is specifically designed for automotive applications. The solution is energy efficient and environmentally friendly as it produces little waste heat. With potent 48V sound power, the amplifiers allow high supply voltages enabling designers to increase the impedance of the load speakers at high output power. High impedance of the speakers enables compact speaker design, saving weight and cable diameters." The product is immediately available.

NXP Semiconductors provides High Performance Mixed Signal and Standard Product solutions that leverage its RF, Analog, Power Management, Interface, Security and Digital Processing expertise. These solutions are used in a range of automotive, identification, wireless infrastructure, lighting, industrial, mobile, consumer and computing applications. A global semiconductor company with operations in more than 25 countries, NXP posted revenue of $4.2 billion in 2011.
