I was considering using one of these as the controller circuit:


would that be doable?

would it be possible to use one of these to run some fets, off a higher rail voltage? or, would I still need split rails?

There is a real market requirement out there for a class-D amplifier design that will provide an output voltage of 350V pk-pk or so. Commercial amplifiers available to feed 100V line systems for PA and voice-alarm ceiling speakers are constrained in size by the step-up output transformers required to feed the 100V rms signal to the speaker line. (I know 100V rms is only 283V pk-pk but headroom needs to be allowed for real audio waveforms).

Of course, for this type of application the effective load for a 200W amp will only be 50 Ohms, so the current levels are quite low. A high-voltage amp to feed 8 Ohms would be a very different matter!

I'm currently doing 400V class D. Check this thread out:


The prototype shown in that thread is more or less working (there are some faults to fix), but development is currently in standby because I have to complete other projects first.
