Boom Box / Mini Stereo System

A Boom Box/Mini Stereo system is a consumer electronics device that receives AM/FM and other audio signals coming from auxiliary inputs and reproduces the audio signal in two channel stereo sound. Silicon Labs' solutions can help you design a differentiated, high-performance product in a small footprint. Below is an example using the EZRadio Si4010 RF transmitter and MCU or the EZRadio Si4012 RF transmitter as the remote control for a mini-stereo system or boom box.
