High quality AM radio


The benefits of digital radio and the range and appeal of AM

Despite FM radio offering increased choice and crystal clear, hiss-free radio reception, AM is still the most common medium used to broadcast news and entertainment. Now the EUREKA project E! 2390 DIAM has combined the benefits of digital radio with the range and appeal of AM.

DIAM devised a chipset powerful enough, yet energy-efficient enough, to bring FM quality sound and data services to regional, national and international broadcasting via the existing digitised AM channels.

There is a massive potential global market of about two billion analogue AM receivers, including India and China where long-range, low-cost radio is ideal for communication and distance learning.
