Description

The MAX4298 and MAX4299 are audio system ICs designed for single +5V applications. The MAX4299 features a stereo headphone driver, a microphone amplifier, and a +3.3V linear regulator; the MAX4298 features a stereo headphone driver. The MAX4298/MAX4299 are designed specifically for harsh digital environments where board space is at a premium and the digital power supply is noisy. The design uses innovative design techniques to achieve ultra-high power-supply rejection across the audio signal band while, at the same time, delivering a high-current Rail-to-Rail output drive capability. The chip is designed to drive highly capacitive loads that may be encountered when driving long cables to a remote load such as desktop/notebook headphones or speakers. These devices are fully compliant with PC99 standards.

The amplifiers exhibit 115dB of DC power-supply rejection and 80dB at 100kHz. The output amplifiers are capable of driving a 1.5VRMS signal into a 10-kilohm load with 0.0008% THD+N. They can also drive 32Ω headphones to 1.2VRMS with 0.02% distortion. At +3.3V, the linear regulator can output 100mA of current. The MAX4298 is available in a tiny 10-pin µMAX® while the MAX4299 is available in the space-saving 16-pin TSSOP package.
