Automotive manufacturers are increasingly demanding for better quality reception from radio designers to provide enhanced audio listening experience for their customers. Audio content can be provided from many sources today, including AM/FM signals, CDs, SD cards, USB flash drive, etc. The modern AM/FM receiver incorporates sophisticated DSP algorithms for signal reception and must not sound dramatically inferior to other audio sources. This paper reviews a few key reception environments that the mobile receiver must cope with, in able to provide good quality reception and to meet the required mobile receiver specifications.
