TThe SSM3582A is a fully integrated, high efficiency, digital input stereo Class-D audio amplifier. The device can operate from a single supply and requires only a few external components, significantly reducing the circuit bill of materials.
A proprietary, spread spectrum Σ-Δ modulation scheme enables direct connection to the speaker and ensures state-of-the-art analog performance while lowering radiated emissions compared to other Class-D architectures. An optional ultralow electromagnetic interference (EMI) mode significantly reduces radiated emissions above 100 MHz, enabling longer speaker cable lengths. Audio is transmitted digitally to the amplifier, minimizing the possibility of signal corruption in digital environments. The amplifier provides outstanding analog performance, with a 106 dB signal-to-noise ratio and a low 0.004% total harmonic distortion + noise (THD + N).
The SSM3582A operates from a single 4.5 V to 16.5 V supply and is capable of delivering 2× 15 W rms continuously into 8 Ω and 4 Ω loads at <1% total harmonic distortion (THD). The efficient modulation scheme maintains excellent power efficiency over a wide range of impedances: 93.8% into an 8 Ω load and 90.6% into a 4 Ω load. Optimization of the output pulse maintains performance at impedances as low as 3 Ω/5 μH, enabling its use with extended bandwidth tweeters.
The pulse code modulation (PCM) audio serial port supports most common protocols, such as I2S, left justified, and time division multiplexing (TDM), and can address up to 16 devices on a single interface, for up to 32 audio playback channels.
IC operation is controlled through a dedicated I2C interface. The two ADDRx pins (2×, five-level) define up to 16 individual addresses in I2C and standalone modes and automatically set the default TDM slots attribution.
A micropower shutdown mode is triggered by removing the digital audio interface clock, with a typical current of <1 μA. A software power-down mode is also available.
An automatic power-down feature shuts down the amplifier and the digital-to-analog converter (DAC) when no signal is present at the input, minimizing power consumption during digital silence. The device restarts when nonzero data is present at the input. Mute and unmute transitions are pop and click free.
The SSM3582A is specified over the commercial temperature range of −40°C to +85°C. The device has built in thermal shutdown and output short-circuit protection, as well as an early thermal warning with programmable gain limiting to maintain operation.
The SSM3582A is available in a 40-lead, 6 mm × 6 mm lead frame chip scale package (LFCSP), with a thermal pad to improve heat dissipation.
