TDA2040 ic

TDA2040 ic is a class AB amplifier IC which is also called a hi-fi power amplifier component, the maximum power TDA2040 produce is around 30watts, the TDA2040 has a maximum current capacity of 4A.

The TDA2040 had very low harmonic distortion and cross-over distortion, then TDA2040 is made with a short circuit protection system.

The package used at the TDA2040 is Pentawatt or also called the zig-zag inline package, the name is due to the pin arrangement at the package.

In the figure above we can see each 5pins are at two different rows, this packaging method is very useful when we use the TDA2040 on printed boards.

High power applications like amplifier ICs used these package, at the Pentawatt package we can see a hole for attaching it with the heat sink.

TDA2040 amplifier IC description

TDA2040 amplifier ICs are one of the power amplifier components used at Hi-fi amplifier circuits, maximum voltage capacity for the IC is indicated with the name TDA2040v.

But at the TDA2040 datasheet the voltage range starts from ±4.5v to ±20v, this voltage range is commonly used at TDA2040 based amplifier circuits.

The peak output current at TDA2040 is 4A, it is the maximum output current handle by the amplifier component and the Quiescent drain current, it is called the standby current which is produced at the amplifier on idle condition, at TDA2040 it is 40 to 60mA.

And the total power dissipation at the TDA2040 amplifier IC is noted as 25w, the capacity of power dissipation almost depends on package usage.

Total harmonic distortion (THD) at TDA2040 is at a range of 0.05 to 0.08%, generally, class AB amplifier had a moderate range of harmonic distortion at circuits.

 The output power range for a single TDA2040 amplifier IC is noted as 30w, but this wattage output value depends on different aspects such as supply voltage, distortion range, and the speaker load or output load.

TDA2040 amplifier ICs replacement

The replacement amplifier ICs for TDA2040 will be TDA2030, TDA2050, and LM1875.

The three amplifiers ICs listed here as the replacement for TDA2040 is identical with each other, the Pinout details are the same but the overall electrical specifications are different so check and verify the values before the replacement process.

The circuit given above is the circuit for a single-supply amplifier based on TDA2040, the power supply given to the circuit only has +ve supply or +Vs and ground.

When the audio signal reaches the input the C1 capacitor bypasses the DC and passes the signal to the input, the R1 resistor is used for biasing the non-inverting input.

The R2 and R3 resistors are used for gain setting for the amplifier, and the tda2040 produce an amplified output and the R4 and C7 are used for maintaining the frequency stability.
