Texas Instruments has shipped one million digital radio chipsets for receivers in the Eureka-147 market. TI launched its first digital signal processor -based RadioScape module in September of 2003.
Nigel Oakley, vice president of Marketing at RadioScape credited the chips with the accelerated adoption of DAB abroad. "Our modules' combination of RadioScape's Software Defined Digital Radio approach and TI's DSPs meets manufacturers' needs by providing tremendous scope for rapid innovation and product customization as well as being highly cost effective. This has resulted in milestones such as the first MP3 and DAB player, the first FM/RDS DAB radio and the first tri- band DAB receiver. In addition, this software approach has enabled us to pioneer features such as pause, rewind, record, Electronic Program Guide, 5.1 surround sound and video that can be implemented for nominal additional costs as these are done via software."
Manufacturers have built Eureka-147 radios around TI's analog and digital radio basebands, including Acoustic Solutions Limited, Cambridge Audio, Hitachi, Intempo, LG Electronics, Morphy Richards, Perstel and Roberts Radio Limited. In addition, module makers using TI's chip include GyroSignal, KwangSung Electronics and TBK Electronics.
