AUTOMOTIVE 18VPP OUTPUT PEIZO SOUNDER DRIVER
The PAM8904Q is a piezo sounder driver designed for driving a
ceramic/piezo sounder or speaker with 18Vpp from a 3V power
supply. A programmable charge pump boost converter allows the
PAM8904Q VOUT to operate in 1X, 2X and 3X mode.
The boost converter operates at a fixed frequency of 1.0MHz and
provides a 9V output with a minimum number of external
components. PAMs unique drive technology ensures minimal inrush
current, low EMI and high efficiency.
To ensure maximum efficiency and battery life the PAM8904Q
includes an auto standby feature which puts the device in sleep mode
while there is no valid input signal. A forced shutdown is also
available to enable the IC only when required.
To help protect the IC and system the PAM8904Q includes
overtemperature shutdown, overcurrent and short circuit protection.
The PAM8904Q is available in a 16pin U-QFN3030 package.
The PAM8904Q is qualified to AEC-Q100 Grade 2 and is Automotive
Compliant supporting PPAPs.
