TDA2052 Mute Pin


2011-03-09 11:03 pm
I really dislike the mute pins that require a certain voltage like this one on the TDA2052. My question is what happens if I just connect the mute pin to ground. Does the voltage need to be exactly +5 over -Vs or can it be more than that so I can just ground it. My power supply is -/+ 12V so if I connected it to ground it would be +12 over -Vs. Would this work?
