Nexo SA and YAMAHA presents their first line of products born from their alliance : the NXAMP 4X1 & 4X4 Powered TDcontrolers.

The NXAMP Powered TDcontrolers (loudspeaker Temperature and Displacement controllers), available in two 4-channel sizes, are developed on a DSP control technology allowing multiple voltage/ current/ temperature sense lines from the amplifier’s output, protecting both the amplifiers and power supplies.

NXAMP signal processing is identical on both models, and derived from NX242 TDcontroller. NXAMP uses twin Freescale (formerly Motorola) DSPs.

The TDcontroller function provides high-pass / low-pass filtering, Crossover (different crossovers available on user’s choice), system equalisation, time alignment, pattern control (omni to supercardioid), loudspeakers protection via sensed amplifier output current and voltage (temperature, displacement, acceleration, inter-channels protections). Some Amplifier protections (like Peak Voltage limiter (clip limitation), Peak Current limiter, Very High Frequency protection, Integrate current limiter, DC offset protection and Short circuit protection) are also provided.

NXAMP power supplies are SMPS (Switch Mode Power Supply), full resonance types with half bridge converters, and use the Zero Crossing Switch (ZCS) technology. In order to present high power capacity with low load drive, NXAMP4×4 employs four times the structure of a monaural amplifier. In addition, on both models, two converters work synchronize the opposite phase, thus cancelling noise.

Both NXAMP amplifiers employ YAMAHA’s EEEngine technology and are also EtherSound enabled. The output transistor in the final stage uses thin chip technology with a small thermal resistance. An Area of Safety Operation (ASO) limiter circuit is also included. ASO limiting is in analogue, as the limiter attack required is to digital protection and converter latency.
