STMicroelectronics (ST) agreed to partner with HD Radio developer and licensor iBiquity Digital Corp. to develop a baseband receiver for HD Radio broadcasting. The HD Radio receiver will expand ST's portfolio of digital radio products, complementing the company's existing AM/FM tuners to deliver an optimized end-to-end solution for combined analog-and-digital radio broadcasting.

HD Radio technology offers enhanced sound quality, more programming choice and new wireless data services on existing FM and AM radio channels, said the press release.

ST has licensed iBiquity's in-band, on-channel (IBOC) technology that allows radio stations to bundle and transmit analog and digital signals on the same frequency. ST and iBiquity will jointly design an HD Radio ASIC chip compatible with ST's AM/FM car-radio tuner.

To be manufactured using CMOS technology, the HD Radio receiver SoC is touted to deliver high system integration, low power consumption and extended features, such as multicast capability and extended data services.

Product sampling is scheduled in 2H of 2007, with volume production slated for 2008.
