20 Watt Power Amplifier
By Randy Linscott
This IC chip was designed specifically for use in power boosting applications in automobiles. It is self protecting against short circuits and thermal problems. In the bridge configuration shown it will deliver 20 watts of power into a 2 ohm speaker operating at 14.4 volts.

This circuit can be used to remotely monitor a loudspeaker, alarm, or audio source for presence of an audio waveform. It can also be directly connected across loudspeaker terminals used as a peak indicator.
A PC usually requires a plug-in ADC card to process analog signals. However, with this circuitry, a PC can communicate with an 18-bit ADC through its serial port.
