STMicroelectronics signed a deal with Fraunhofer to develop an IC for Digital Radio Mondiale applications.

Uses include fixed and portable radios, car receivers, software receivers and PDAs.

“Allowing listeners to set their radio using station names or IDs, the ASIC will offer excellent audio quality and integration of sound with data and text,” the companies stated.

DRM is an open-standard digital radio system that has been accepted by the International Electrotechnical Commission and European Telecommunications Standards Institute. Proponents advocate its use for long-, medium- and short-wave frequencies. The system supports multimedia content such as track title, artist name and station name.
