A low-power single chip FM/AM radio IC capable of extending the battery life of a radio has been developed. Decreasing the current consumption is realized solely by new circuit design techniques without making changes to the conventional processes in IC fabrication. The characteristics of this IC is not degraded even though the current consumption is decreased, but instead, operating time has been improved to be four or five times than that of the conventional radio
