# TAS6424E-Q1: TAS6424Q SUPPORT 1ohm 80W IN PBTL MODE& SPREAD SPECTRUM 8% RANGE

Part Number: TAS6424E-Q1

Tool/software:

1 .Does it support 1ohm 80W  in PBTL mode,and if there is some potential risk about other specification？

2. Spread spectrum 8%　is　PWM ±8%　or±4%？

• Hi,

1. 80W into 1 ohm in PBTL is possible.  Driving a 1 ohm speaker is a challenge.  The current is high and you will need good speaker wires.  You will be close to the current limit and may not meet 80W
2. ±4% using the values in the datasheet.

• Thank U,now we use it at　PWM=384k±8% for EMC,but it also can work well and the performance is al ok

• 1.As TYP value, frequency variation 8% is requested in datasheet, how about max one?

2.For example, when setting PWM frequency to 480kHz, and register 0x77 to 84, 0x78 to 30, 0x79 to 05 .

SO we get the

SS-AMPL=4

SS-PRE-DIV=48

SS-STEP=5

Make sure which one is correct to calculate the max/cent/min spread-spectrum frequency for keeping variation not over 8% (+/- 4%) spec?

1)As per fomula below, we get Fmin=256*48kHz/(48*2+2+4)=120.5kHz

Fcent=256*48kHz/(48*2+2)=125.4kHz

So, Fsw_ssΔ=(125.4-120.5)/125.4=3.9%<4%(spec)

The follow blue word is the datasheet content

• SS_PRE_DIV = (256 * FS / Fcemter) - 2) / 2
• SS_AMP = 64 * (Fcenter - Fmin) / Fcenter
• SS_STEP = 16 * 4 * SS_AMP * FSS / Fcenter

The follow equations calculate the output PWM frequency variation with the settings listed previously.

• Fmin = 256 * FS / ((SS_PRE_DIV * 2 + 2) + SS_AMPL = 256 * 48 kHz / ((31 * 2 + 2) + 2) = 186.18 kHz
• Fmax = 256 * FS / ((SS_PRE_DIV * 2 + 2) + SS_AMPL = 256 * 48 kHz / ((31 * 2 + 2) - 2) = 198.19 kHz
• FPWM_min = Fmin * 11 = 186.18 kHz * 11 = 2.048 MHz
• FPWM_max = Fmax * 11 = 198.19 kHz * 11 = 2.189 MHz

2)As per another below, we will get the bad variation result of  Fsw_ssΔ=4/64=6.25%>4%(spec)

• SS_AMP = 64 * (Fcenter - Fmin) / Fcenter

3., How can we get Fpwm_cent  according to a certain  formula from Fcent？ Fcenter*?=480k,the ? is fixed or regulated for 480k

1. We found RE performance of 1/2 PWM frequency( 240kHz point) is NG due to 13dB over. How to optimize the parameters for better one?
• We found the best set is 0x77 : 84       0x78: 20      0x79:  05,the EMC will be OK, we can not sure about the  spread spectrum is OK or not? and what should to check the other things to make sure we can use the parameter.  PWM=384K and  480K two conditions both use the same parameter

• Hi,

There is another thread from the same IP address on this issue:

I will close this one.

• I am so sorry that i found my workmate had asked the same question...   But i think your answer is very professional that i want get your answer,thank U
