This TI reference design is a 3.1-W mono fully differential audio power amplifier driving a chime and is one part of an automotive cluster system solution optimized for the mid-end cluster market. The entire cluster solution supports 4.5-40V system capabilities that can withstand cold crank, start stop, and load dump conditions.

  • 3.1-W mono fully-differential class-AB audio amplifier eliminating common-mode noise designed to drive a speaker with at least 3-Ω impedance
  • Only three external components (No input coupling caps) required by the TPA6211A1-Q1 amplifier Reducing the overall external component count
