NXP Semiconductors has unveiled the TDF8599C, a new automotive stereo Class-D amplifier which targets sound systems in premium cars where high power output and efficiency are required. The device offers a supply voltage range up to 48V that enables extremely high output power and the flexibility for sound designers to drive high-ohmic load speakers.
As a result the speakers can be lighter, smaller and more cost efficient offering a more vibrant in car sound.
With its audiophile-quality sound, the TDF8599C 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.
