The Si4713 IC supports the European Radio Data System (RDS) and the US Radio Broadcast Data System (RBDS) standards including all the symbol encoding, block synchronization and error correction functions. Using this feature, the Si4713 IC enables data such as artist name and song title to be transmitted to an RDS/RBDS receiver.
Users are responsible for adjusting their systems' radiated power levels to comply with local regulations on RF transmission (FCC, ETSI, ARIB, etc.)
The SEMC w980i was named European Imaging and Sound Association's Best Music Phone award for 2008
“One incredibly valuable innovation is the built-in FM radio transmitter. This broadcasts phone-based music playback to a standard car radio, even transferring artist and track details via RDS.” - EISA
