HI-FI 120W RMS Amplifier Circuit using LM4780 IC + PCB

Fig. 1 - HI-FI 120W RMS Amplifier Circuit using LM4780 IC

This is a HI-FI Audio Amplifier circuit with high quality with a large frequency response, using the Integrated Circuit LM4780 which is a stereo audio amplifier. 

Capable of providing normally 60W per channel of average power of continuous output on an load with less than 0.5% THD + N from 20Hz to 20kHz.

LM4780 General Description

The LM4780 is fully protected utilizing National’s Self Peak Instantaneous TemperatureKe) (SPiKeTM) protection circuitry. 

SPiKe provides a dynamically optimized Safe Operating Area (SOA). SPiKe protection completely safeguards the LM4780’s outputs against over-voltage, under-voltage, overloads, shorts to the supplies or GND, thermal runaway and instantaneous temperature peaks. 

The advanced protection features of the LM4780 places it in a class above discrete and hybrid amplifiers.

Each amplifier of the LM4780 has an independent smooth transition fade-in/out mute. The LM4780 can easily be configured for bridge or parallel operation for 120W mono solutions.

The Circuit

In Figure 2 below, we have the arrangement of the amplifier circuit components with the LM4780 IC, and as we can see, there are few external components. 

It is making the amplifier circuit very simple to assemble, one must be careful when assembling the circuit, so as not to invert any component, as it may suffer circuit burnout.

Features

  • SPiKe protection
  • Few external components
  • Silent fade-in / mute out mode
  • Wide range of supply voltage: 20V - 84V
  • Signal-to-noise ratio ≥ 97dB (ref. for PO = 1W)

Power Supply

The power supply is a +-35V symmetric power supply. If you want to use it in stereo mode with two channels, it will be necessary to use twice the current to support the power of 240W, 120W per channel.

The power supply must have a good filter to avoid roaring, interference, and oscillations in the amplifier output.

The consumption current for a channel "One integrated circuit", must be 4 amps, if using two circuits, in stereo mode, the current must be doubled, in this case 8 amps.

The LM4780 must be equipped with a heatsink, if you use the IC without the heatsink, it will burn out.

It is recommended to tinker the voltage and output tracks, since the IC has a tight pinout, making it impossible to widen the tracks on the PCB.
