TDA2611A 5W Audio Amplifier IC

The TDA2611A is a 5W mono Audio Power Amplifier IC. It’s got a wide input supply voltage range (6v to 35v) and a typical output power of 4.5W to 5W. Below is the pinout diagram for the TDA2611A IC.


You can check the TDA2611A Datasheet for more specifications information and a typical application circuit.

TDA2611A Audio Amplifier Circuit Schematic Diagram

This is the Audio Amplifier Circuit Diagram That I’ve implemented based on the information found in the TDA2611A datasheet. I’ve just added an additional (optional) input filtering for RFI protection.

❕ Note

The 100nF input capacitor is preferred to be a ceramic capacitor (avoid electrolytic). Add the input RFI filter if needed, in case you’re hearing a static noise (hissing) while the amplifier is IDLE.

The speaker I’ve used in this project is a 5W/4Ω speaker. Across the speaker, you can see a (100nF + 10Ω) network that’s known as the “Zobel Network” which keeps the speaker load impedance constant across the operating frequency range.

Here is the wire-up for the TDA2611A audio power amplifier on a breadboard.


TDA2611A Amplifier Testing

The testing setup that I’ve used for this project is shown below.


To measure the output power, I’ve used a dummy load instead of a speaker to avoid generating excessive noise in my lab room and also to protect my speaker if something goes wrong during the test. The function generator is used to generate a fixed tone (1kHz sine wave) with controllable magnitude.

The output at the load is monitored on the oscilloscope screen. We’ll increase the input sine wave’s amplitude up to the point where the amplifier starts saturating and distorting the output waveform. This is the maximum output power that it can generate at that level of Vcc before it starts clipping.

I’ve repeated that test multiple times at different Vcc voltage levels to measure the maximum output power of the TDA2611A amplifier. I’ve managed to achieve the 5W characteristic power rating of the amplifier at a Vcc level of 15v. Here is a summary of the test results below.

❕ Note

The Audio Amplifier Output Power (Average Power) is calculated using the formula below:

Pout(Avg) = (VP)2 / 2(RL)

Where, VP is the peak output voltage, and RL is the load resistance.

Test Case 1Test Case 2
TDA2611A 2W At 9vTDA2611A 3.5W At 12v
Vcc = 9v
Vp = 4v
Output Power = (4)2/2(4Ω) = 2W
Vcc = 12v
Vp = 5.2v
Output Power = (5.2)2/2(4Ω) = 3.5W
