Stereo bridge with TDA 7370 amplifier
Most car radio amplifier ICs designed tor a supply voltage ot 12 V have a maximum output power in the region of 10 watts. The production methods applied by SGS-Thomson tor their TOA7370, however, allow the output power ot this stereo bridge amplitier IC to be pushed very near the theoretical maximum ot 22.5 watts. This level is reached at the cost ot some distortion, but still without the use ot a DC-to-DC step up converter.
