100-Watt single-IC amplifier
According to National Semiconductor, the LM3886 is a highperformance 150W Audio Power Amplifier with Mute. The performance of the LM3886, say NS, utilising its Self Peak Instantaneous Temperature (°Ke) (SPIKe) protection circuitry, puts in a class above discrete and hybrid amplifiers by providing an inherently, dynamically protected Safe Operating Area (SOA). The LM3886T comes in an 11 (staggered-) lead non-isolated TO220 package.
