Here is my latest design for the TPA3106D1. This is an unproven design but no change in the schematics were made since my last attempt, only the layout changed.TPA3106D1 Rev C PCB

    Why did you choose to use a 1500uF cap instead of the 220uF which was used in the app notes?

    Also how come your 1nF caps are rated for 100V?

  2. The 1nF caps are four (4) times the maximum voltage (4 x 25). This is worse case senario and was also preferred for the price, at the time, the 100v version was cheaper in required quantities.

    The link to the Eagle files seems broken (I get an empty “Download” page).

    Of course, it’s possible to reverse engineer the circuit and to match it to the reference design from TI, but it would be easier to build the circuit from the Eagle files.

    I really loved the short para on your website about “BS driven development”, it is so true!!!!!

    the next amazing thing that I found was the compact PCB layout of TPA3106. This IC has huge potential and somehow is neglected by R.W.O completely. Since you have posted eagle files on diyaudio. com and on your website, would you mind if I alter them as per my need and fabricate PCB out of them? I would love to share the eagle file with my other AudioHolic friends.

    Thank you so much!

    Ok, now that you say that you have updated the design, I am very curious to see the picture of new layout. If possible, please post pictures of new PCB.


  6. OSH Park won’t allow holes within 15 mils of the board edge, but maybe they could be cvnnioced to look the other way. I tried what you did above too and had a flap of copper left on each hole, which I suppose is slightly better, but still not good enough.
