Texas Instruments has announced the availability of the DR1200 chip - claimed to be the industry's first digital baseband chip to support HD Radio Technology, formerly known as In-Band On-Channel (IBOC).

HD Radio technology enhances AM and FM broadcasts with digital signals that improve listening quality and can provide additional information, such as station information, song and artist identification, stock and news reports, local traffic, weather alerts, and more.

The DR1200, based on TI's TMS320C6000 DSP architecture incorporates digital channel, source, and data decoding and demodulation functions. It also features iBiquity Digital Co.'s IBOC digital module (IDM) that simplifies the design of an HD Radio receiver and reduce the development and deployment time for radio manufacturers.

The credit card sized IDM is designed to easily plug into existing AM/FM radio architectures.

The DRI200 is supported by TI's Code Composer Studio IDE, providing designers the ability to add new software functions on the same piece of silicon.

Samples of the DRI200 are available now for $50 each.
