Even though we publish new blogs daily from your intrepid editor and from a number of well-known writers, sometimes it's good to have a look back at some of our articles from the recent past that were well received.
Audio seems to be a popular topic among engineers. Here is one that discusses class-G audio power amplifiers. Class-G amplifiers share some traits with the more well-known class-D amplifiers — notably, better power efficiency. Better efficiency makes them ideal for battery operated portable devices. They provide this efficiency while maintaining high levels of performance.
This article is in two parts. Part 1 looks at the general details of different classes of amplifiers and compares their performance. Then it moves into the specific details of how class-G works.
Part 2 gets into the class-G performance specifics.
Let us know about your experiences working with audio in general and these newer classes of amplifiers in particular.
