Single Chip FM Radio Circuit

In this project, we are creating a Single Chip FM Radio. The core of this circuit is the TDA7000 digital IC, and the design incorporates appropriately chosen inductors and capacitors. To a certain extent, this circuit can be considered highly reliable due to the specialized nature of the IC in constructing radio circuits.


We’ve created a compact and cost-effective FM radio circuit using the TDA7000 IC, following the specifications in the datasheet, and the results are impressive. It’s a perfect project for electronics enthusiasts of all levels.

The TDA7000 is a monolithic integrated circuit specifically designed for mono FM portable radios, minimizing the need for additional peripheral components. It employs a Frequency-Locked-Loop system with an intermediate frequency of 70 kHz, and active RC filters are employed to achieve intermediate frequency selectivity.

The only aspect that necessitates adjustment is the resonant circuit for the oscillator, which determines the receiving frequency. Additionally, the IC incorporates a mute circuit to prevent spurious reception and filter out excessively noisy input signals. Special precautions are taken to ensure compliance with radiation standards.
