Product Details

The MAX98395 is a 11.7W high-efficiency, mono Class-DG speaker amplifier with industry leading quiescent power and a wide supply range that can even support single cell Li+ batteries or an external boost. MAX98395 also features current and voltage sense (I/V sense) and dynamic headroom tracking (DHT). Precision output current and voltage monitoring (I/V sense) enables speaker protection algorithms to be run by a host device. Spread spectrum modulation (SSM) and edge rate control minimize EMI and eliminate the need for the output filtering found in traditional Class-D devices.

To achieve industry-leading quiescent power, the Class-DG amplifier employs two supply rails, VBAT and PVDD, to supply the speaker amplifier. Additionally, as the power-supply voltage varies due to sudden transients and declining battery life, DHT automatically optimizes the headroom available to the Class-DG amplifier to maintain consistent distortion and listening levels. The DHT block provides both a dynamic range compressor (DRC) and a limiter that can operate as either a signal distortion limiter (SDL) or standard signal level limiter (SLL).

The device provides a PCM interface for audio data and a standard I2C interface for control data communication. The PCM interface supports audio playback using I2S, left-justified, and TDM audio data formats. In TDM mode, the device can support up to 16 channels of audio data. A unique clocking structure eliminates the need for an external master clock for PCM communication, which reduces pin count and simplifies board layout.

Thermal-foldback protection ensures robust behavior when the thermal limits of the device are reached. When enabled, it automatically reduces the output power when the temperature exceeds a user-specified threshold. This allows for uninterrupted music playback even at high ambient temperatures. Traditional thermal protection is also available in addition to robust over-current protection.

The device is available in a 0.4mm pitch, 28-bump wafer-level package (WLP). The device operates over the extended -40°C to +85°C temperature range.
