New 2.8W High Power Speaker Amp ICs for Advanced Instrument Clusters
In recent years, technological innovations in the automotive field - such as autonomous driving and ADAS - require a greater variety of sounds, such as warning sound when departuring from the lane or for surrounding obstacles. As a result, even audio output systems in the instrument cluster are utilizing speaker amps to generate sound with an MCU, instead of relays that produce blinker sounds and electronic buzzers that emit warning sounds. However, until now it was difficult to ensure safe, stable sound output at loud volumes.

How is a 32-bit float file recorded?
The MixPre II Series are the industry’s first and only USB audio interfaces to offer 32-bit floating point audio.¹ Audio inputs on the MixPre appear as 32-bit floating point audio sources to a DAW for recording and mixing. DAW software can output 32-bit floating point audio back to the MixPre. This is a significant advance because the gain setting on the USB interface and in the DAW are no longer critical to achieving excellent sound. With 32-bit float, audio gain decisions can be made after recording. This may sound provocative to an experienced sound engineer.
