Good information, that 800ma when shorted.
There is likely a surge that is considerably higher while it
cap if you power up the rig
first with no headphones or speaker, then plug in a dead short.
Only there for maybe a couple milliseconds, so would need to use
to see it
as a voltage across perhaps 0.1 ohm resistor that is in series
to the chip.
Was that the stock TDA2822M that came with the uBitx?
Mine has a logo of "FCI" or maybe it's "FOI", where
the middle character is filled in to where it is an almost solid
It also says "PI1" and then below it says
I have no idea who makes that.
Post 43211 says there's some really bad clones masquerading as
There seems to be at least a half dozen different manufacturers
So any testing had best fully describe manufacturer and markings
Tayda claims to have some ST/SGS-Thomson TDA2822M's and
at cheap prices:
When you click through to the datasheets, you get either a 1995
datasheet (for the TDA2822M)
or a UTC datasheet (for the TDA2822L) The "L"
just means lead free.
A google search for TDA2822M finds this ST datasheet first,
and marked "Obsolete":
I suspect the Tayda parts are not really ST.
Yes, bridge mode would be nice for driving an internal speaker.
But not for driving anything external, were everyone would
jack shell is at ground potential.

- Did some more tests.
- Normal audio use the current was 60-70mA
- Dead short with varied drive the current was 300-800mA. At
chip got hot!
- The current did not go above 1A at any time.
- I suspect there are TDA2822Ds masquerading as TDA2822M.
