Fraunhofer teams with STMicro for Digital Radio Mondiale solution

STMicroelectronics and the Fraunhofer Institute for Integrated Circuits IIS said they will jointly develop a dedicated low-power application-specific integrated circuit (ASIC) for Digital Radio Mondiale applications including car receivers. The ASIC will allow listeners to set their radio using station names or IDs, and it also promises excellent audio quality and integration of sound with data and text.

Digital Radio Mondiale is an open standard digital radio system with FM-like sound quality available to markets worldwide for long-wave (LW), medium-wave (MW), and short-wave (SW) frequencies. It offers better audio quality, interference-free reception, and multimedia content such as track title, artist name and station name.
