Layout Guidelines

The TPA3110D2 can be used with a small, inexpensive ferrite bead output filter for most applications. However, since the Class-D switching edges are fast, it is necessary to take care when planning the layout of the printed circuit board. The following suggestions will help to meet EMC requirements.

  • Decoupling capacitors—The high-frequency decoupling capacitors should be placed as close to the PVCC and AVCC terminals as possible. Large (220 µF or greater) bulk power supply decoupling capacitors should be placed near the TPA3110D2 on the PVCCL and PVCCR supplies. Local, high-frequency bypass capacitors should be placed as close to the PVCC pins as possible. These caps can be connected to the thermal pad directly for an excellent ground connection. Consider adding a small, good quality low ESR ceramic capacitor between 220 pF and 1000 pF and a larger mid-frequency cap of value between 0.1μF and 1μF also of good quality to the PVCC connections at each end of the chip.
  • Keep the current loop from each of the outputs through the ferrite bead and the small filter cap and back to PGND as small and tight as possible. The size of this current loop determines its effectiveness as an antenna.
  • Grounding—The AVCC (pin 7) decoupling capacitor should be grounded to analog ground (AGND). The PVCC decoupling capacitors should connect to PGND. Analog ground and power ground should be connected at the thermal pad, which should be used as a central ground connection or star ground for the TPA3110D2.
  • Output filter—The ferrite EMI filter (Figure 40) should be placed as close to the output terminals as possible for the best EMI performance. The LC filter (Figure 38 and Figure 39) should be placed close to the outputs. The capacitors used in both the ferrite and LC filters should be grounded to power ground.
  • Thermal Pad—The thermal pad must be soldered to the PCB for proper thermal performance and optimal reliability. The dimensions of the thermal pad and thermal land should be 6.46mm by 2.35mm. Seven rows of solid vias (three vias per row, 0,3302 mm or 13 mils diameter) should be equally spaced underneath the thermal land. The vias should connect to a solid copper plane, either on an internal layer or on the bottom layer of the PCB. The vias must be solid vias, not thermal relief or webbed vias. See the TI Application Report SLMA002 for more information about using the TSSOP thermal pad. For recommended PCB footprints, see figures at the end of this data sheet.

For an example layout, see the TPA3110D2 Evaluation Module (TPA3110D2EVM) User Manual. Both the EVM user manual and the thermal pad application report are available on the TI Web site at
