Toshiba Electronic Devices & Storage Corporation announced a new 4-channel high-efficiency linear power amplifier "TCB701FNG," that meets current market requirement for high efficiency.
With "TCB701FNG," the company has improved on its technology to realize efficiency comparable with a digital high efficiency, class D amplifier in actual operating range (0.5 to 4W). Power consumption is cut by up to 80% of that for a typical class AB amplifier.
The new amplifier also includes a self-diagnosis function with I2C bus control that can diagnose errors and contribute to a suitable set design by changing the detection setting for gain or time constants. It also includes full-time error detection of output DC offset voltage, which can quickly detect abnormal output offset voltage and prevent speaker burnout, improving set reliability.
