Construction & Working
IC PAM8403 comes in SOP-16 Package hence it occupies minimum PCB space, Analog VDD and Power VDD supply applied from J4 Connector. Power GND and Analog GND also applied from J4 Connector, Mute and SHND (Shutdown) Pins are Active low pins when applying GND supply to these pins we can mute and shutdown the PAM8403 from its operation.
Connector J1 acts as a Audio Input terminal, here stereo input Right and left channel audio signals from source connected, then to the IC through variable Resistor and Capacitor filter. Output Audio signal for Right loud speaker connected in J2 and output signal for Left loud speaker connected in J3 connector. By varying the RV1, RV2 variable Resistors we can control the output volume in loud speaker.
