NPR is promoting a new Wi-fi Internet radio featuring an exclusive menu dedicated to NPR stations, programming, and podcasts.
NPR put to rest any doubts that it would oppose a 6dB interim increase in FM IBOC digital carrier power, based on its most recent study of digital-to-analog interference and input from member stations.
There are 17 stations in the Old Line State broadcasting 28 HD Radio channels.
Both the AVR XMEGA and AVR32 processor families are used in a number of HD Radio designs for user interface and control functions.
Among the biggest complaint reported among early adopters are so-called black spots, coverage holes within the footprint of DAB+ multiplexes now operating in the nation's five largest metropolitan areas.
VCNA President and CEO Doug Speck said the move would be a huge benefit for buyers and that the new standardized HD Radio receivers would be appearing in 2010 and 2011 models.
The unit provides access to all Internet radio stations, but adds a exclusive menu for NPR stations and programs.
The PCI adaptor card contains four separately addressable AM/FM HD Radio tuners that can be fed incoming RF jointly or separately.
The models are the mid-size crossover SUV X5 model and the mid-size sports activity coupe X6.
The quad-channel HD Radio tuner is housed on a PCI card.
The profiles aim to help manufacturers build stand-alone DRM or multi-standard receivers and stimulate digital radio markets across the world.
As a first step, the recently minted Internet Media Device Alliance has called a press conference on Sept. 6 at the IFA 2009 Consumer Electronics Exhibition in Berlin.

Launched in early July 2009, the new digital radio service in Australia has a countrywide reach encompassing five major cities and more than 60 percent of the nation's population can receive DAB+ digital radio.
The plan calls for FM to move to DAB, and AM to move to the FM channels.
The partnerships result in more RBDS and HD Radio broadcasting market coverage.
In-Stat reports the worldwide market for digital radio saw ongoing growth of 85 percent between 2007 and 2008.
At a meeting in late March 2009, the DRM Consortium will hear and debate how the recent decisions of these two countries to implement DRM for short-wave and medium-wave bands will become the driving force for the rollout in the rest of the world.
The DRM consortium is organizing presentations and a dedicated DRM session during the BES Expo International Conference to be held in Delhi, India.
It seems the 2,000-station mark is in sight, but the rate at which stations are activating HD Radio signals has slowed.
Nautel has developed a technology called HD Power Boost that uses an intelligent peak to average power ratio (PAPR) technique to address this issue.
Not every listener is going to want to participate in targeted advertising. Our society has raised suspicions about privacy to paranoia proportions. However, there will be those who are unconcerned. There will be those who prefer to hear commercials that match their lifestyle. There will be listeners that desire certain free-but-protected programming and are willing to opt-in to receive premium content.
