  • New Product – Mouser Now Shipping Infineon Technologies MA2304xN MERUS Multilevel Switching Amplifiers for Wireless Audio Applications

Mouser is now stocking the MA2304xN MERUS™ multilevel switching amplifiers from Infineon Technologies. The MA2304xN MERUS™ series provides engineers with unmatched power efficiency at both low and high output power for wireless and Bluetooth® speakers, soundbars, and battery-powered designs for conference and multichannel room audio systems. The MA2304DNS amplifier is a 2 × 37 W audio amplifier with fully integrated and configurable DSP (digital signal processing) with I2S/TDM (time division multiplexing) audio interface. It features MERUS multilevel switching amplifier technology, enabling unmatched power efficiency at both low and high output power, without the necessity for a heatsink or a traditional LC filter. Multilevel switching also reduces EMI (electromagnetic interference) and enables inductor less applications with lower cost and no compromise in audio performance or efficiency. The MA2304PNS offers a simpler volume control and limiter for systems where an application/connectivity processor does the audio processing. This makes the MA2304PNS ideal for battery-powered speaker applications where extended battery life and/or reduced battery cell cost are crucial. The Infineon MA2304DNS and MA2304PNS are supported by the EVAL_AUDIO_MA2304DNS and EVAL_AUDIO_MA2304PNS evaluation boards.
