Xtensa Processors Enable Next-Generation Mobile HD Radio Technology

Tensilica's Xtensa configurable processor has been designed into the baseband processor in Samsung EM’s HD Radio chipset. The baseband processor, based on a design by iBiquity Digital Corporation, the developer and licensor of HD Radio technology and a Tensilica processor reseller, integrates the memory, SDRAM and flash in a system-in-package measuring just 9 x 9 mm. Including the companion RF (radio frequency) chip, this low-power chip set’s total power consumption is 150 mW, making it ideal for a wide range of battery powered portable devices capable of tuning and demodulating AM/FM radio broadcast in both analog and HD Radio digital technology.
