Tectonic Elements MonadA1 Boards and Dongle Only

The MonadA1 from Tectonic Elements is a battery powered mono amplifier reference design targeted at wireless audio applications. Based on the Audium 13 watt burst mono amplifier, the MonadA1 is efficient enough to be powered from a single AA Ni-MH rechargeable battery.

Audium's power amplifier technology differs from that of other Class D switching amplifier designs in that it operates efficiently over the entire frequency bandwidth regardless of output power. Most other Class D amplifiers are at optimum efficiency only at full output power, which rarely happens in the real world.

What Audium's efficiency achieves is the ability to create a truly wireless speaker when the MonadA1 is embedded into a speaker, powered off of a battery, and connected to a wireless audio receiver. While the MonadA1 was designed to accept the low power Kleer KLR3012 wireless audio device from SMSC, it will work with other wireless receivers that consume a low amount of power, such as the wireless USB transmitter included with this kit.

• Power output: 3 watts continuous into 8 ohms, 13 watts burst power into 8 ohms
