The DRV600EVM evaluation module demonstrates the capabilities and performance of the DRV600RTJ from Texas Instruments.
The DRV600 is a stereo line driver designed to allow the removal of the dc-blocking capacitors typically found in an audio application, reducing overall component count and cost. The DRV600 is ideal for single-supply electronics where size and cost are critical design parameters.
The DRV600 is capable of driving 2VRMS into a 600 Ω load with a 3.3 V supply. The DRV600 has a fixed gain of -1.5 V/V and line outputs that have ±8 kV electrostatic discharge (ESD) protection. The DRV600 also has independent shutdown controls for the left and right audio channels.
This EVM is configured with two RCA phone input connectors and two RCA phone output connectors. The power supply is connected via a 2-pin, 2.54 mm pin header.
This EVM is designed for evaluating applications such as A/V receivers, DVD receivers, DVD mini-component systems, home theater in a box (HTIB) designs, or set-top boxes. The module is designed to quickly demonstrate the electrical performance of the device.
