Description: The most common audio amplifiers available today use biased power transistors to amplify the audio signal. Maintaining this bias wastes a large amount of power, and efficiency is typically below fifty percent at normal listening volume. The goal of this project is to build a more efficient bass amp by using switching power processing techniques which eliminate the need for biasing in the amplifier circuit. General functionality is as follows: The amplifier takes a low power audio signal as input, compares it to a triangle wave running at much higher frequency, and the output of the comparator is then used to generate gate drive signals for the power- handling part of the circuit. This part of the project will be implemented with a DSP. The DSP output is then interfaced to four FETs in a bridge configuration. They will be operated to produce a high power square wave with duty ratio proportional to the amplitude of the original audio signal. This square wave is then low-pass filtered to restore it to a continuous waveform to be sent to the speakers. Objectives include: 1 kW peak output power; efficiency better than that of a linear amplifer; minimal distortion of audio signal.
