88mW, Capless, Stereo Headphone Amplifier with Shutdown
88mW, Capless, Stereo Headphone Amplifier with Shutdown

The SGM4916 is stereo headphone amplifier which is designed for portable applications and can operate from a 2.7V to 5.5V single supply. Capless design can produce a ground-referenced output from a single power supply, and can eliminate output DC-blocking capacitors for less-component height and low-cost. For SGM4916B, the internal gain setting (-1.5V/V) is to further reduce component count. For SGM4916A, the gain can be adjusted by external feedback resistors.

The SGM4916 has low quiescent current 2.7mA at 5V supply, low 0.034% THD+N, 88mW per channel into 32Ω load from 5V power supply at THD+N = 0.1%. The high supply rejection ratio (PSRR) of -70dB at 217Hz allows the device to operate from noisy digital supplies without an additional linear regulator. The device provides short-circuit and thermal-overload protections. Build-in shutdown control also helps for pop/click-free on/off control.

The SGM4916 is available in a Green TQFN-3×3-12L package. It operates over an ambient temperature range of -40 to +85.
