Compact 200 W Output Stage


Compact 200 W Output Stage
There is no doubt that this small power amp packs a punch. It is capable of delivering a healthy 200 W into 4 Ohm. Into 8 Ohm it can still output 125 W.
These large power outputs are made possible through the use of Darlington transistors made by Sanken, the SAP16N and its opposite number, the SAP16P (in our prototype we used their predecessors, the SAP15N and P, because the SAP16 versions were not available at that time). These power transistors have an emitter resistor built in, as well as a diode for temperature compensation. Because of this, the whole emitter follower stage has just two components (and a preset for setting the quiescent current, shown in the circuit).
