TS3A227E: What does this device do with regards with FM?

Part Number: TS3A227E

Hi,

TS3A227 E supports FM.
Could you explain this meaning?
Please tell me about the use and applications.

  • Hello,

    I apologize for any confusion. This device does not do any frequency modulations (FM), but it does have the ability to pass signals in up to that bandwidth, which is atypical of audio switches.

    Please see the block diagram which can be found in the datasheet for the TS3A227E, showing that we provide the capability for FM Receiver:

    and a snippet below showing the bandwidth of the TS3A227E found on page 8:

    Thank you,

    Louie-san,

    Thank you for your response.
    I am afraid of asking but what is this function required for?
    Please tell me examples of use and application.

    Hello Yusuke-san,

    I apologize if my original response came off blunt. This is an open forum and we encourage all questions related to the field of engineering and applications with the products TI offers. Please do not hesitate to ask questions. I mention the page numbers of the datasheet so that other readers can refer to them for more information.

    The functionality of this internal FET is to allow FM radio support as mentioned on page 20 of our datasheet:

    and then again on page 23 showing you how to enable this function:

    Please understand that it is not as simple as attaching an antenna to that pin. You will need some external FM receiver with a matching network connected to that pin to use this functionality. 

    An example application is if you have the TSA3227E in your mobile device, you can connect it with an FM receiver, and now your mobile device will have the capability of receiving FM radio. 

    Thank you,

    Louie
