FM430 – A MSP430 and TEA5767 Project that lets you listen to clear digital FM

One fine day while i was rummaging through the part bin, I found an old project that probably was never completed ! FM Radio ! I tried to make one when i was in 7th grade, waiting at the counter of a dingy electronics repair shop for anyone to pay attention to the parts list gathered over the internet ( Dial up days ! ). At that time, i just jotted down all i could from the internet and went straight to the ...
