Dawny said:Hello all, again I hope I’m posing this in the right forum. I am shipping in some NE602’s because I have a AM Superheterodyne radio circuit I want to try but I was wondering after that what else could I do with the chip, can anyone throw me a bone on this one?
mvs sarma said:Basically is it eential to use NE602 for a superheterodyne radio- when ready designed chips are available and are reasonably cheap. like 1191, CXA 1619,
There are i suppose, decent quality radio Rx using these very chips. Perhaps the quality of magnetics they use, the optimization of Layout, quality of the cabibet meterial used and (ofcource the look and decency really counts) matter a lot. SONY and Panasonic make good receivers from these very chips. Philps and ST chips are really said to be good.Nigel Goodwin said:The thing is you're probably building a decent quality radio, instead of the fairly poor ones that those chips are used in.
