14VP-P, Class G Ceramic Speaker Driver
Class G, CeraMax Technology Drives Ceramic Speakers in the Smallest Footprint
DescriptionThe MAX9788 features a mono Class G power amplifier with an integrated inverting charge-pump power supply specifically designed to drive the high capacitance of a ceramic loudspeaker. The charge pump can supply greater than 700mA of peak output current at 5.5VDC, guaranteeing an output of 14VP-P.
The MAX9788 maximizes battery life by offering high-performance efficiency. Maxim's proprietary Class G output stage provides efficiency levels greater than Class AB devices without the EMI penalties commonly associated with Class D amplifiers.
The MAX9788 is ideally suited to deliver the high output-voltage swing required to drive ceramic/piezoelectric speakers.
The device utilizes fully differential inputs and outputs, comprehensive click-and-pop suppression, shutdown control, and soft-start circuitry. The MAX9788 is fully specified over the -40°C to +85°C extended temperature range and is available in small lead-free 28-pin TQFN (4mm x 4mm) or 20-bump WLP (2mm x 2.5mm) packages.
