DSP radio system
The Digital Signal Processing (DSP) radio system (see
Fig.1) consists of:
- Analog tuner (also called RF/IF)
- Audio power amplifier
- IF co-processor
- Audio co-processor.
The microcontroller interfaces to the RF/IF and SAA7724H via an I²C-bus. Analog tape
and CD inputs are input from other parts of the radio. The IF co-processor and audio
co-processor interfaces to the SAA7724H via an I²S-bus.
SAA7724H digitizes up to two IF signals and performs DSP to generate left front, right
front, left rear, and right rear audio and RDS/RBDS data output. The SAA7724H also
samples analog baseband tape, FM MPX, AUX inputs, analog and digital CD, performs signal
processing on these sampled waveforms and multiplexes the proper signal to the output. A
microcontroller interface allows the SAA7724H to be controlled and monitored.
SAA7724H is composed of hardwired and programmable DSP circuitry, with programmable
parameters, such as injection frequencies, filter coefficients and control parameters.
Some functions or groups of functions are implemented with programmable sequence
