- I guess it´s not very likely to get source code for this chip. But
it´s available on breakout board at http://www.ak-modul-bus.de/ for
those who want to build a broadcast receiver.
It only demodulates FM (in broadcast band) and AM for medium wave and
short wave bands. I think it can tune any frequency below 30 MHz, and
it´s up to manufacturer of for example a portable receiver to program
their microcontroller to tune within a shortwave broadcast band. At
least in theory I think it would be easy for SI Labs to also support
SSB and then it could be more interesting for ham radio. But getting
I/Q out of SI4735 is not likely going to happen.
Then maybe this chip is more interesting (for higher frequencies)
