The chips and DRM receivers are now deployed in DRM-fitted car infotainment receivers in a newly launched vehicle in India by a leading carmaker. �

DRM is a digital radio standard that has been deployed in emerging markets. It provides FM-comparable or better audio quality on the AM radio band. Because AM radio covers more than 98% of the population in India, compared to 37% coverage of FM, DRM provides a significant benefit. This technology also provides additional data services such as traffic updates, natural disaster warnings and news.�

The development and deployment of this new technology, showcased at a DRM Round Table conference on Jan. 3, was made possible by a regional collaboration betweenAll India Radio,NXP Semiconductors, Hyundai Mobis and theDRM Consortium.
