Default Spice Model TDA2040


I am about to build some test equipment and was considering using a TDA2040 in the output. My concern was the stability at unity gain. Has anybody a spice model for a TDA2040 or TDA2030? Has anyone tried running these at unity gain?

The idea is to generate a spit supply from a 24 volt plug pack (wall wart to some) so the supply will be +/- 12 volts.

The 12 bit DAC output from a Xmega micro will supply the signal. DC to audio frequencies only. Voltage out +/- 8 maximum. Good output control at mV required so I may have digital gain control (relay Hi Lo).

Regards Ken

I created an LTSpice model of LM1876 which is quite similar. Have run TDA2030 at 6dB gain, not totally convinced about the stability yet though - you need to fit a series RC to 'bleed off' some of the excess loop gain.
The smart way to keep people passive and obedient is to strictly limit the spectrum of acceptable opinion, but allow very lively debate within that spectrum. Chomsky

HI abraxalito

Thank you for your reply, it is good to know you have ran one at 6dB of gain. I shall draw up and rout a circuit board making provision for feedback gain adjustment and also a voltage divider on the input. If you are interested I shall report back.


BTW it has taken me this long to sort out the xmega code as I'm new to the beast.
