The DRV601EVM customer evaluation module (EVM) demonstrates the integrated circuits DRV601RTJ from Texas Instruments (TI).
The DRV601 is a stereo line driver designed to allow the removal of the DC-blocking capacitors for reduced component count and cost. The DRV601 is ideal for single-supply electronics where size and cost are critical design parameters ().
The DRV601 is capable of driving 2 Vrms into a 600 Ω load at 3.3 V supply. The DRV601 has external gain-setting resistors, that support a gain range of -1 V/V to -10 V/V and line outputs that have ±8 kV IEC ESD protection. The DRV601 has independent shutdown control for the left and right audio channels.
This EVM is configured with two RCA phone input connectors and two RCA phone output connectors. Power supply is connected via a two-pin 2.54 mm pin header.
The EVM is configured with a gain of -2 V/V.
This EVM is designed for evaluating applications such as A/V receivers, DVD receivers, DVD minicomponent systems, home theater in a box (HTIB) designs, or set-top boxes.
