Title:NXP New TFA9911 Smart Sensing Amplifier Turns Smartphone Speaker Into Microphone, Vibration Sensor with Superior Audio Performance
NXP Semiconductors recently introduced a new smart sensing amplifier, TFA9911, featuring a high efficiency class-D audio amplifier, sophisticated speaker boost and protection, and combining speaker sensing and processing algorithms to optimize recording and calling experiences. The device transforms speaker into a microphone and features vibration detection, which enables development of new “tap” activating use cases for smartphones.
. Designed to make smartphones smarter, the new amplifier features a high efficiency class-D audio amplifier, sophisticated speaker boost and protection, and combines speaker sensing and processing algorithms to optimize recording and calling experiences.The new amplifier provides smartphones with superior audio performance in noisy environments such as concerts or sporting events and enables loud and clear playback without saturating or distorting the sound. The new NXP device utilizes its speakers as microphones to improve the smartphone’s recording quality. Also, the amplifier equips smartphones with a vibration sensor for reliable “tap” detection on both sides of the phone, for example users can tap their finger on the back of the phone to take a “selfie” with a single hand.
The description of the TFA9911
The TFA9911 is a high efficiency class-D audio amplifier with a sophisticated speaker boost and protection algorithm. It can deliver 7.2 W peak output power into an 8Ohm speaker at a supply voltage of 3.6 V. The internal boost converter raises the supply voltage to 9.5 V, providing ample headroom for major improvements in sound quality.
The TFA9911 is the combination of a high efficiency class-D audio amplifier with a sophisticated speaker boost and protection algorithm, and state-of-the-art audio processing software for noise suppression and audio zooming. It can deliver 7.2 W peak output power into an 8 Ω speaker at a supply voltage of 3.6 V. The internal boost converter raises the supply voltage to 9.5 V, providing ample headroom for major improvements in sound quality.
With the new speaker-as-microphone solution, the TFA9911 will offer great audio recording quality and reducing wind-noise when talking. It also has tap sensing on the speaker which allows you to tap anywhere on the phone to take selfie or any other feather.
According to NXP, unlike competing solutions, the adaptive sound maximizer algorithm uses feedback to accurately calculate both the temperature and the excursion, allowing the TFA9911 to adapt to changes in the acoustic environment. Also, internal intelligent DC-to-DC conversion boosts the supply rail to provide additional headroom and power output. The supply voltage is only raised when necessary. This maximizes the output power of the class-D audio amplifier while limiting quiescent power consumption.
