The Si2211 and Si2212 Satellite Digital Audio Radio Service (SDARS) tuners from Silicon Laboratories Inc. have attained XM Radio type approval certification. The Si2211 and Si2212 lower the bill of materials for XM radio receivers by reducing the board space and component count typically required by competing solutions.

The Si2211 and Si2212 enable XM radio manufacturers to further improve reception performance, especially under harsh conditions like those found in an automotive environment. The Si2211 implements a single SAW superheterodyne architecture that supports next-generation satellite receivers and allows radio manufacturers to reduce costs. Meanwhile, the Si2212 integrates the functionality of two Si2211 tuners creating the only single-chip dual branch solution for enhanced satellite radio service for next generation radios. The availability of both ICs offers customers greater flexibility and quicker time-to-market when designing both single and dual branch satellite radios.
