RDS/RBDS decoder with optional FM stereo receiver

RDS/RBDS decoder with optional FM stereo receiver

This project supports both RDS (Europe) and RBDS (USA) Tuner FM band 88..108 MhZ (Europe and USA.) You can choose between a 4×20 character LCD or a smaller graphical LCD to display data. A simple RS232 interface can also be used.
The schematic consists of two major subcircuits:

The actual RDS/RBDS Decoder with the PIC and the display.

The FM Stereo tuner with headphone amplifier.

If you want to build this decoder into an existing tuner, then you won’t need to rebuild the tuner part of the circuit. All you need to do then is to look for an MPX-signal in your existing tuner. This is usually found before the stereo decoder chip. This MPX signal must then be fed to the TDA7330 through a 47nF capacitor.

The circuit needs a couple of seconds of valid RDS/RBDS data before driving the LCD.

Quality indicator: a stable arrow (first row on the LCD) means the reception is good. Blinking arrows however indicate no valid RDS/RBDS data is being processed (signal too weak or station transmits no RDS/RBDS data.)

Digital tuning and volume control: the joystick gives us to have full control over the circuit. Last values are stored and reloaded on boot.

You’ll have to choose a 4×20 character LCD or a smaller graphical LCD to display data. The smaller graphical LCD is best suited for portable applications, whereas the larger 4×20 character LCD is best for fixed receivers (f.e. in your car). The RS232 interface also shows all decoded data properly.
