Q: TAS5342LA vs TAS5342A
Please help me with the following questions?
1. What is (are) the primary difference(s) between the TAS5342LA and
TAS5342A other than heat dissipation capabilities and voltage
supply-to-gnd ranges for the bootstrap and half-bridge (output)
2. Why was the TAS5342LA designed to have higher heat dissipation ratings vs. TAS5342A?
3. Why is the voltage supply -to- gnd voltage ranges lower in the
TAS5342LA vs. the TAS5342 when both are rated for the same amount of
output power? (For this question, I'm really trying to understand why
the TAS5342A would allow for more output voltage swing of the output
but dissipate less heat than the TAS5342LA.)
Help in understanding this device more throughly would be greatly appreciated!

The changes were made because it was cheaper for the customers. TI offers both the TAS5342A and TAS5342LA so that the customer can choose if they want to pay for higher efficiency.
