Today’s EIO post is on audio amplifier boards. Amplifiers are devices that increase the gain of an audio signal and currently dominate modern audio technologies. With audio amplifier boards, you can design and build your own audio amplifier from scratch using basic electrical engineering principles.

Introduction:

The term amplifier refers to any device that increases the amplitude of a signal, usually measured in voltage or current. This versatile device is used in a variety of different electronic applications. Especially in audio technology, a wide range of amplifiers can be produced based on product specifications (i.e. power, voltage, current). Currently, there are many types of audio amplifiers available for consumers. Sound signal amplification is used for instruments, such as the guitar or the bass. They are also used commonly in home theater systems and with stereo speakers. The basic design behind all of these amplifiers is derived from the simplest concepts of circuit design.

Classes of Amplifiers:

Assembled in different configurations, resistors, capacitors, and transistors can create several classes of amplifiers that can be distinguished by performance characteristics. Class A amps are very linear (meaning the integrity of the signal is maintained through the amplification process); however, this amplifier topology is known to be very inefficient. In addition, Class A amplifiers invert the signal (meaning the function is reflected over its axis). Class B amps are much less linear, leading to higher distortion of the signal, but they are much more efficient. Since a Class B amp only amplifies half of a signal, two Class B amps are generally used in synchronization. The compromise between these two topologies is the Class AB amplifier. The Class AB is more efficient than the Class A with lower distortion than the Class B. Often the different types of amplifiers are used in combination with other amplifiers into order to achieve the specifications of a particular design.
