It operates with a 2.5 V to 6.5 V supply voltage in a 7V, 1.2 um, double-poly, triplemetal, BiCMOS process. It has an area of 1.5 x 1.5 mm2 and it achieves a THD as low as 0.04%, with a flatband response between 20 Hz and 20 kHz. Modulation Scheme Double-sided natural sampling pulse width modulation scheme. The selected PWM scheme provides current to the load only when needed, and once delivered the current is maintained. This is accomplished by using all four states available to a full H-bridge. The modulation scheme uses any of the states in any order, dependent upon the audio input signal. Different kinds of PWM modulations Advantage The amount of information contained in each period is twice the amount of single sided modulation. There is the possibility of having all of the significant distortion components to be outside the audio band thus enabling a filter free class D audio amplifier.
