Eindhoven, The Netherlands - Aug 13, 2008 - NXP Semiconductors has developed the first multi-standard radio integrated circuit dedicated to digital in car-reception together with Ibiquity Digital. Called the SAF3560, the chip supports HD Radio, DAB, DAB+, DRM and T-DMB Radio reception standards, reducing development costs and logistics complexity for car manufacturers.

As multiple digital radio formats continue to emerge, auto makers are challenged with examining all the major digital radio protocols and determining which ones to support. The SAF3560 also supports the latest HD Radio features, including Itunes tagging, conditional access and software upgradeability.
