STMicroelectronics Announced TS4604, Integrated Stereo Headphone and Driver
STMicroelectronics Announced TS4604 stereo audio amplifier, combine several audio improvements contributing to enhanced ownership experience.
The TS4604 is a stereo ground-referenced output analog line driver and stereo headset driver whose design allows the output DC-blocking capacitors to be removed, thus reducing component count. The TS4604 drives 2 Vrms into a 5 k ohm load or more. The device has differential inputs and uses external gain setting resistors.
The TS4604 integrates a 100mW stereo headphone output and a driver for the audio Line Out connection of LCD and plasma televisions, set-top boxes, PVRs, Blu-ray players, and PC-audio products such as sound cards. Its low operating power and dedicated shutdown control per function help meet eco-design objectives. In addition, self muting enhances listeners’ experiences by preventing audible pop and click noises when external factors cause the supply voltage to dip.
The TS4604IPT is in production now, in a halogen-free 28-pin TSSOP package, priced at $0.75 in quantities of 1000. Alternative pricing options are available for larger quantities.
