Tokyo, Japan - May 21, 2009 - Ibiquity Digital has approved Sanyo Semiconductor Corporation's SDRS-400 reference design and its LC75040 tuner for digital HD Radio receiver applications. The device is designed primarily for automotive products but is suited for other applications.
The SDRS-400 reference is comprised of the LV25400 RF front-end IC and the LC75040 analog back-end IC. The combination of LV25400 and LC75040 provides a digitized interface that can be combined with HD Radio decoder ICs to design HD Radio receivers for automotive applications. It integrates a digital AM/FM tuner, RBDS, audio function and a micro computer into a single DSP chipset.
