Figure 1: MERUS™ amplifiers have a special power stage topology. In this design each half-bridge uses four MOSFETs (M1-M4) and the capacitor is “flying” between those to serve as an extra supply rail, resulting in a three-level output signal at the output switching node

Voices, noises, music – they are part of our lives. Sound has always been all around us. It connects us to our surroundings either we produce or just listen to them. Being an integral part of our everyday, conception and design of audio products and their environments have become more and more essential. In

Figure 1: The AC line can feed a single larger AC/DC converter (top), or several smaller ones (bottom)—even with the same output voltage.

Naturally, when specifying an AC/DC supply for a new project, one needs to select a product with the right output voltage and current rating, as well as input voltage range. But it goes much deeper
