Analog Devices Inc. SSM3582 Class-D Audio Amplifiers

Analog Devices SSM3582 Class-D Audio Amplifiers feature high efficiency, fully integrated, digital input stereo Class-D audio amplifiers. The SSM3582’s proprietary, spread spectrum Σ-Δ modulation scheme allows direct connection to the speaker. The direct connection ensures state-of-the-art analog performance and lowers radiated emissions compared to other Class-D architectures. An optional ultra-low Electromagnetic Interference (EMI) mode reduces radiated emissions above 100MHz. 

The audio is digitally transmitted to the amplifier. This transmission method minimizes the possibility of signal corruption in digital environments. The SSM3582 amplifiers deliver an outstanding analog performance with a 106dB signal-to-noise ratio and a low 0.004% total harmonic distortion (THD) + N. Operating from a single 4.5V to 16V supply, SSM3582 amplifiers deliver 2 x 15Wrms continuously into 8Ω and 4Ω loads at <1% THD. SSM3582’s efficient modulation scheme maintains excellent power efficiency over a wide range of impedances.

Optimization of the output pulse maintains performance at impedances as low as 3Ω/5μH, enabling its use with extended bandwidth tweeters. These SSM3582 amplifiers are specified over the commercial temperature range of −40°C to +85°C. The SSM3582 amplifiers offer built-in thermal shutdown and output short-circuit protection, as well as an early thermal warning with programmable gain limiting to maintain operation.
