High-performance Hi-FI Audio Amplifier, capable of producing excellent audio quality, using the LM3875 integrated circuit.

The LM3875 is a high-performance power audio amplifier capable of delivering 56W of continuous power at load with 0.1% THD + N from 20Hz to 20KHz.

The LM3875 features an instantaneous temperature protection circuit with auto peak (° Ke) (SPiKe), which puts it in a class above discrete and hybrid amplifiers, inherently providing a safe operating area (SOA) dynamically protected by the circuits.

SPiKe protection, this means that the entire circuit is completely protected at the output against over-voltage, under-voltage, overloads caused by shorted outputs, thermal leaks, and instantaneous temperature spikes.

The LM3875 maintains an excellent signal-to-noise transient rate above 95dB (min), with a typical low noise level of 2.0μV. It displays extremely low THD + N values ​​of 0.06% at the rated output into the rated and provides excellent linearity with a typical IMD (SMPTE) rating of 0.004%.

Features of LM3875

  • 56W continuous average output power at 8Ω
  • 100W instantaneous peak output capacity
  • Signal-to-noise ratio> 95dB (min)
  • Short-circuit protection to the ground or, to supplies via internal current limiting circuit
  • Output overvoltage protection against inductive load transients
  • Provides protection against under-voltage, not allowing internal polarization when | V + | + | V− | ≤ 12V, thus eliminating the activation transients are deactivated
  • 11 Lead PFM Package
  • Wide supply voltage range: | V + | + | V− | = 20V to 84V
  • Total harmonic distortion (THD) less than 0.03% in the frequency range of 20Hz to 20kHz

Power Supply Circuit

The power supply provided by a transformer AC,  which can be elaborated through a 28-0-28Vac,  with 5 Ampers current, which after going through the rectification, will be delivered in the supply range around +/- 40Vdc.

As we saw in the characteristics of the LM3875 above, it has a wide range of supply voltage, which we can use a lower voltage or higher voltage source, we can do with what we have on our bench.

In Figure 2 below, we have the schematic diagram of the 56W Hi-End Amplifier with the LM3875 CI.
