New Amtel Chip a Significant Improvement to Automotive Radio

Chips on the Move

Amtel Corporation, a leader in radio frequency technology, today announced a new integrated circuit (IC) that will significantly upgrade automotive radio performance. CNN/Money reprints the company’s news release describing the new ATR4262 chip:

The ATR4262 is a world tuner device covering all AM/FM frequencies worldwide. Its FM section handles the frequency range from 70 MHz to 166 MHz, including weather band and HD Radio in the US. The AM path covers the entire broadcasting frequency range from 150 kHz up to 30 MHz, including modern DRM systems.

An 11-page technical data sheet on this new automotive-compliant device is available for download (in pdf format) from the company’s website.

Amtel introduced the first DAB (Digital Audio Broadcasting) chipset back in 1996, and the first FM integrated circuit in 2001. They are devoted to continuing development of both analog and digital radio concepts, and are extremely active in the European car radio market.
