According to Radio-Online, after many years of intensive and productive collaboration, NXP Semiconductors has become a formal member of RadioDNS, an organisation that promotes the use of open technology standards to enable hybrid radio.

Nacho Seirul-Lo Salas, Director of Program Management Customer Application Support at NXP, has also been appointed to the RadioDNS Steering Board.

"This is excellent news, and reflects the growing importance of our open standards for hybrid radio," said Nick Piggott, Project Director of RadioDNS. "We've been working with Nacho and his colleagues at NXP for a long time and now this relationship is further strengthened by their membership of RadioDNS. We'll continue to work closely with them to help their OEM customers implement our global standards for hybrid radio."

"After years of fruitful collaboration, where NXP has presented at least 3 generations of hybrid radio demonstrators, NXP is now happy to join the RadioDNS organization to restate our commitment to broadcast radio and enhancement of its user experience by adding metadata from the Internet," noted Seirul-Lo Salas. "I am looking forward to this continued success."
