NXP Semiconductors recently launched the latest members of its RFCMOS-based, high-performance AM/FM single-chip car radio tuners. The TEF665x and TEF668x tuners combine the latest RFCMOS technology with a broad feature set, best-in-class software algorithms and simplified integration, offering a first-class solution for car radios.

Providing OEMs with increased flexibility, the tuners offer optional support of HD Radio and DRM digital radio standards via a co-processor such as NXP's SAF356x and SAF350x. With a reduction in footprint (-80%) and power dissipation (-50%) compared to its predecessor, the tuners provide premium performance at a low system cost, ideal for emerging and high-growth markets such as the BRIC countries.

NXP is focused on improving reception quality in challenging field conditions, including multi-path reception caused by obstacles such as tall buildings or mountains. Special algorithms on the TEF668x such as improved multi-path suppression (iMS) and channel equaliser (CEQ) ensure excellent sound quality during such conditions.
