“This miniature module has amazing possibilities, great sensitivity and selectivity.
This time I will prtesent you how to make a AM/FM Radio, based on radio module with TEF6686 chip from NXP. This miniature module has amazing possibilities, great sensitivity and selectivity, adjustable de-emphasis and filter. It has a output analog audio L + R, or MPX, depending on the configuration.
Also, this module has an I2C communication protocol, so the simplest way to communicate with a personal computer is an Arduino microcontroller with the appropriate code uploaded. For the PC there is an application called XDR-GTK through which we control the module. I mounted the module on proto board so I could connect it to the Arduino more easily.
So to make a complete radio receiver we need only a few components:
- radio module with TEF6686 chip
- Arduino microcontroller
- Two capacitors
- Audio jack and cable
- and Personal Computer”
