At this point, Raspberry Pi has no shortage of impressive hacking attacks. [Dilshan Jayakody] Recently recorded that he was designing and building a Cheap FM stereo receiver for Pi platform, The results are impressive.
Quite a lot of FM receiver projects are centered on RDA5807 or TEA5767 IC, but [Dilshan] In his construction, Quintic Corporation’s QN8035 was used. To connect QN8035 to Pi’s I2C bus, you only need to install a few discrete components on a pleasant single-sided PCB.
Proving that the FM tuner can, um, Tuning On the command line, [Dilshan] Then I wrote a smart-looking GUI application that made adjustments a breeze. The software allows listeners to scan FM stations manually and automatically, decode program service data, control volume, and display RSSI and SNR readings from the tuner.
As we reported earlier, FM radios are slowly becoming obsolete. This latest project is not intended to break new ground, but its simple and inexpensive components are a perfect combination for beginners and radio enthusiasts.More details can be found above Hacker day. Schematic, source code and bill of materials can be found in GitHub.
