Project: HEAD – Integrated Class D Audio Amplifier with High Efficiency

Acronym: HEAD
Main Objective:
This project proposes to develop a novel class D audio amplifier for portable applications with high efficiency and very low harmonic distortion. Currently the research of portable audio codecs using mix linear-switching techniques is under high development, aiming high efficiency and audio fidelity. The class D amplifier is one of the most used circuit solution to obtain high efficiency.
