Audio Amplifiers with LM386 IC

LM386 Audio Amplifier
  • The LM386 Audio amplifier chip is a general purpose amplifier with a variable gain
  • The device is suitable for driving a small 8 ohm speaker
  • It operates from a single supply rail making it convenient in battery powered devices
  • The device has a low quiescent current making it suitable for battery operated devices (4mA)
  • The chip is supplied in a standard 8 pin DIL plastic package
  • Take care that the chip has suficient space as it may become warm in use!!  
  • Specifications
