Power Analog Microelectronics (PAM), a developer of Class-D digital audio amplifiers and power management semiconductors, recently announced the introduction of six Class-D audio amplifiers, including the new 2W family, and the expansion of its 1.2W product offerings.

The four new PAM8x02 Class-D audio amplifiers deliver 2W into an 8-ohm load, at less than 10 percent THD+Noise, with efficiencies of over 85 percent. According to the press release, only one input coupling capacitor per channel is needed in the external circuit.

The PAM8102 is a mono Class-D audio amplifier housed in an 8-pin SOP, while the PAM8202 is a stereo Class-D audio amplifier packaged in an 8-pin SOP. The PAM8302 is a mono Class-D audio amplifier with mute/enable function and is housed in an 8-pin SOP, while the PAM8402 is a stereo Class-D audio amplifier with mute/enable function and is packaged in a 14-pin SOP.

In addition, the company extended its PAM8x01 series of 1.2W amplifiers with the introduction of PAM8301 (mono) and PAM8401 (stereo) Class-D audio amplifier, both with mute/enable functions in an 8-pin SOP package.

"With the introduction of the PAM8x02 series of 2W Class-D digital audio amplifiers, PAM continues to expand its product offerings to the rapidly growing market where high-performance, highly efficient and energy saving solutions are critical to meet customers demand for next generation products," said Johnston Chen, president and CEO of PAM.

All of the six new products are designed for cellphones, MP3 players, PMPs, portable-DVDs, GPS navigation, powered speakers and other portable electronic devices.
