6/17/2002 - Extending its digital amplifier technology into the burgeoning home theater industry, Texas Instruments Incorporated (TI) (NYSE: TXN) introduced a new line of cost-effective digital audio amplification products, enabling new opportunities for all-digital audio systems. Among the new products is the industry´s first 100-watt (W) all-digital audio amplifier, which enables a manufacturer to shrink the height of an audio/video (A/V) receiver to one quarter of the typical size. TI's latest product lines will increase digital amplifier power output, number of channels available and sound quality, while reducing power consumption, system cost and form factor size in targeted audio devices, ranging from DVD and A/V receivers to mini-component systems. TI's new Digital Amplifier Power Stage Controller, the TAS5182, efficiently manages the delivery of a full 100 W at 6 ohms for driving speakers in home theater applications. With the TAS5182's high-efficiency amplification, a typical heatsink's size is reduced by 90 percent and power supply requirements are reduced by 50 percent, saving both space and cost.
