Royal Philips Electronics and Delphi Corp. have jointly developed a next-generation digital tuner for vehicle entertainment systems. Philips Car DSP, the SAF7730, enabled Delphi to develop a proprietary radio software that provides reception performance through the use of advanced DSP algorithms. The SAF7730 is a single-chip DSP solution with several integrated powerful DSP cores for audio and radio processing.

The next-generation tuner is expected to offer listener clarity, enhance noise suppression, and reduce multipath channel effect which provides consistent sound quality under dynamic reception conditions. It is also anticipated to provide the interface required for the new digital-quality HD Radio features.

"Philips' radio DSP will become a key device in Delphi's future car radio systems," said Bob Schumacher, business line executive for Delphi's Wireless Business Line. "We are proud that our venture with Philips will provide our customers with excellent audio quality and will allow us to use our own software for unsurpassed radio reception performance," he added.
