Hyundai Mobis has announced the successful completion of field trials of Mobis DRM receivers and NXP chips designed in India.
The chips and DRM receivers are now deployed in DRM-fitted car infotainment receivers available in a newly launched Hyundai vehicle in India.
The development of these chip and receivers were the result of collaboration between All India Radio, NXP, Hyundai Mobis and the DRM Consortium. With this new technology, India radio listeners car receive higher quality AM broadcasts, traffic updates, natural disaster warnings and news.
All India Radio has thus far completed the installation of 35 transmitters and has announced a second phase of the project, which will make all DRM features available, explained DRM Consortium Chairman Ruxandra Obreja. She points out that this evolution, combined with the new chips and receivers, will provide more listeners with digital radio capabilities.
