SLOS528F July 2009 – April 2017 TPA3110D2
The TPA3110D2 is designed to operate form an input voltage supply range between 8-V and 26-V. Therefore, the output voltage range of power supply should be within this range and well regulated. The current capability of upper power should not exceed the maximum current limit of the power switch.
The TPA3110D2 is a high-performance CMOS audio amplifier that requires adequate power supply decoupling to ensure that the output total harmonic distortion (THD) is as low as possible. Power supply decoupling also prevents oscillations for long lead lengths between the amplifier and the speaker. Optimum decoupling is achieved by using a network of capacitors of different types that target specific types of noise on the power supply leads. For higher frequency transients due to parasitic circuit elements such as bond wire and copper trace inductances as well as lead frame capacitance, a good quality low equivalent-series-resistance (ESR) ceramic capacitor of value between 220 pF and 1000 pF works well. This capacitor should be placed as close to the device PVCC pins and system ground (either PGND pins or PowerPAD™) as possible.
For mid-frequency noise due to filter resonances or PWM switching transients as well as digital hash on the line, another good quality capacitor typically 0.1 μF to 1 µF placed as close as possible to the device PVCC leads works best. For filtering lower frequency noise signals, a larger aluminum electrolytic capacitor of 220 μF or greater placed near the audio power amplifier is recommended.
The 220-μF capacitor also serves as a local storage capacitor for supplying current during large signal transients on the amplifier outputs. The PVCC terminals provide the power to the output transistors, so a 220 µF or larger capacitor should be placed on each PVCC terminal. A 10-µF capacitor on the AVCC terminal is adequate. Also, a small decoupling resistor between AVCC and PVCC can be used to keep high frequency class D noise from entering the linear input amplifiers.
