  • I built a little FM radio using this board, a PIC24 programmed in C (from scratch), an I2C EEPROM chip, and a 2x16 LCD. It took me two days to get the power-up sequence working (including a kluge consisting of a software-generated reset), especially since the Silicon Lab documentation had critical parts in different places. But after that programming went pretty smoothly. After getting the original breadboard version working, it sounded so good that I had to put it in a case for everyday use. Power is two AA cells.

    Great sound and stereo reception made it worth the effort. Also the receiver is quite good at picking up stations using the headphone cable as the antenna. It is the best sounding FM receiver I have.
