2. Overview
This manual describes the operation of the Silicon Labs Si4825-DEMO board Rev1.1, November 20, 2012. The
Silicon Laboratories Si4825-DEMO board is designed with the 16-pin SOIC packaged Si4825 chip, the
revolutionary single chip AM/FM/SW receiver that integrates everything from antenna input to audio output and
allows use of common and economical potentiometers to do the frequency tuning. It provides a complete portable
analog tune analog display AM/FM/SW radio design. The Si4825-DEMO is designed with 1-layer PCB, allowing
the lowest cost without sacrificing the RF performance. The demo board works with two AAA batteries and working
voltage down to 2.0 V.
3. Description
Figure 1 and Figure 2 shows the physical layout of the board with key components indicated.

Audio Output Test Point:
For the general specification test, TP2 is the recommended audio signal test point. The audio test instrument
should be connected to TP2 to get more accurate test results. J5 can also be used as an audio test point, but the
test results may not be entirely accurate under some circumstances.

4. Operation
S4825-DEMO board, a complete analog tune and analog display radio, is very easy to operate:
1. Switch the SW Wide/Narrow-band selector J8 to the desired SW Wideband or Narrow-band.
2. Switch the tuner VDD connector J4 to the desired VABT or VCC.
3. Put two AAA batteries into the battery compartment.
4. Switch the power switch to the ON position. The board will power up to a radio band according to the
position of the band switch.
5. Change the band switch to the desired band.
6. Rotate the tuning wheel and find the desired frequency.
7. Rotate the volume control wheel or press the volume control push buttons to get a comfortable volume.
Note: For FM listening, the earphone cable must be connected to the board when J2 is set to "HP ANT" or an external antenna
must be connected to the BNC connector when J2 is set to "BNC".
For AM listening, the ferrite antenna must be connected to the board and the J3 is set to "Ferrite" before Turning on the
radio or band switching to AM.
For FM/AM sensitivity and SNR test, the tuner output volume level must be set to maximum by pressing push button S4,
or you might get degraded test results.
