The output stage of the amplifier drives the load using the PVDD supply. This is the power supply which provides the drive current to the load during playback. Proper connection, routing, and decoupling techniques are highlighted in the section and section and must be followed as closely as possible for proper operation and performance. Due to the high-voltage switching of the output stage, it is particularly important to properly decouple the output power stages. The lack of proper decoupling can results in voltage spikes which can damage the device, or cause poor audio performance and device shutdown faults. See the TAS3251EVM for proper component selection, placement and layout for best performance.
