Several U.K. Radio Brands Choose TI-based DAB Designs

Texas Instruments says a majority of digital radio brands in the U.K. have decided to use TI’s Eureka-147 baseband and analog chipset. Receiver manufacturers using TI’s chip include Acoustic Solutions, Cambridge Audio, Hitachi, Intempo, Morphy Richards and Roberts Radio.
GyroSignal, Samsung Electro-Mechanics and TBK Electronics are incorporating TI’s chipset along with software from Radioscape into their units.
“With current sales at 135% of last year, and this year’s record setting-numbers that could possibly triple last year’s volume, we expect the DAB market to become one of the fastest-growing emerging markets in history,” said Ian Dickens, chief executive of Digital Radio Development Bureau, a marketing group promoting the Eureka-147 technology.
“With the help of these module makers, TI has enabled the most brands to come to market in the last six months, including two that switched designs from TI’s competitors,” stated Naresh Coppisetti, digital radio business manager at TI.
