Other Parts Discussed in Thread: TAS5822M, , TAS5825P
Good day. I am posting this inquiry on behalf of our customer.
I am considering a new audio amplifier design with either the TAS5822 or TAS5825. They have many specifications in common but the TAS5825 has a 3-band DRC, which is attractive. Are there any reasons I should consider the TAS5822? For example, heat dissipation?
I am designing an active speaker array with 16 speakers and 8 stereo Class-D amplifiers. I intend to design this product within the limitations of the devices but it will be played loud for many hours at a time, so thermal dissipation and other aspects that will affect long-term reliability are important. I prefer 3-band DRC over 2-band, but that is only if all other important aspects are similar. If the TAS5822 is superior in many ways, I would appreciate an explanation.
I realize that the TAS5822M was introduced first and the TAS5825M was introduced a few years later. Why are they in different packages? Does one package have advantages over the other? Does the TAS5822M have any advantages over the TAS5825M other than a lower price?
Please help to advise. Thank you for extending your support
