What is an Audio Amplifier?
Author: Source: Release time: 2016-06-23 12:02:36
An audio amplifier is an electronic device that increases the strength (amplitude) of audio signals that pass through it. An audio amplifier amplifies low-power audio signals to a level which is suitable for driving loudspeakers. The input signal of an audio amplifier may only measure a few hundred microwatts, but its output may be tens or even thousands of watts. Design parameters for audio amplifiers include gain, frequency response, distortion and noise.
Types of Audio Amplifiers
There are many different kinds of audio amplifiers and at Future Electronics we stock many of the most common types categorized by gain, nominal gain bandwidth, output power, maximum supply voltage, packaging type and number of channels. The parametric filters on our website can help refine your search results depending on the required specifications.
The most common sizes for gain are 20 dB, 26 dB, 30 dB, 36 dB and 48 dB. We also carry audio amplifiers with gain as high as 115 dB. The number of channels can be between 1 and 10, with the most common audio amplifier semiconductor chips having 1, 2 or 4 channels.

Applications for Audio Amplifiers:
Applications for audio amplifiers include home audio systems, concert and theatrical sound reinforcement and public address systems. The sound card in a personal computer, every stereo system and every home theatre system contains one or several audio amplifiers. Other applications include instrument amplifiers such as guitar amplifiers, professional and amateur mobile radio and portable consumer products such as games and children’s toys.
Choosing the Right Audio Amplifier:
When you are looking for the right audio amplifiers, with the FutureElectronics.com parametric search, you can filter the results by various attributes: by Nominal Gain Bandwidth (22 Hz, 20 kHz, 300 kHz,…), Gain (0 dB, 20 dB, 26 dB, 30 dB, 36 dB, 48 dB,…) and Output Power (27 mW to 200 W) to name a few. You will be able to find the right semiconductor chip from several manufacturers that can be used to design a mini audio amplifier, home audio amplifier, audio amplifier IC (integrated circuit), inline audio amplifier, low power audio amplifier, car audio amplifier, digital audio amplifier, PC audio amplifier, stereo audio amplifier, TV audio amplifier or any other devices requiring an audio amplifier.
Audio Amplifiers in Production Ready Packaging or R&D Quantities
If the quantity of audio amplifiers required is less than a full reel, we offer customers many of our programmable audio amplifier products in tube, tray or individual quantities that will avoid unneeded surplus.
