Audio Power Amplifiers

  • Henrik Sjöland
Part of the The Springer International Series in Engineering and Computer Science book series (SECS, volume 490)


This chapter deals with low voltage integrated audio power amplifiers. Such an amplifier can be used in portable equipment with modest output power requirements, such as mobile phones, portable computers or small radio receivers.
