Circuit power audio amplifier IC tda2002 – 8 Watts

| | , , , ,

This is a class AB audio power amplifier circuit which built using a TDA2002 or TDA2003 power amplifier IC module. These are replacements for the original LM383 which is no longer available. It is easy to build and has a minimum of external components. The module has both short circuit protection and thermal protection. It can drive loads as low as 1.6 ohm and is capable of delivering over 10 watts from a 16 V supply.

The TDA2002 and TDA2002A are integrated circuit amplifiers specially designed for use in car radios, where the adverse electrical environment places great demands upon the reliability of circuits.

The supply voltage may be anywhere between +8 and +18V, and the IC will accept transient voltage peaks of up to 28V without damage. The IC can supply a short-circuit output current of 3.5 A and 15W of power at a case temperature of 90°C. At a supply voltage of 14.4V (fully charged battery ) the maximum output power is at least 4.8W, and typically 5.2W into a 4Ω load.

The IC will, in fact, drive load impedance’s as low as 2Ω, in which case the maximum output power is at least 7W and typically 8W. The above power are all measured at 10% distortion, but obviously at lower output powers the distortion is much less (Typically 0.2% ).
