“Maxim has taken advantage of its 3D process, opening the doors to countless possibilities for future solutions that enhance mobile devices. There is no better or smaller amplifier than the MAX98314 for your portable design needs,” said Kristy Lypen, director of business management for Maxim.
The MAX98314’s integrated capacitors provide better voltage-independence and matching than standard Class D amplifiers with external input capacitors. With excellent linearity, this Class D amplifier improves the system power-supply rejection ratio (PSRR) and enhances performance at low frequencies.
This 3.2W amplifier provides Class AB audio performance with Class D efficiency. Its higher efficiency and low quiescent current extend battery life and make it a low-power solution. It offers improved sound quality because the low noise floor and click-and-pop suppression techniques ensure that there is no audible noise—unless there is supposed to be. The MAX98314 is part of Maxim’s broad portfolio of audio solutions that advance audio quality in mobile products.
