Title Digital Audio Broadcasting system - Specification of the Receiver Data Interface (RDI)
Project Number 7492
Abstract/Scope The Eureka 147 Digital Audio Broadcasting System is able to transmit data rates of up 1.8432 Mbit/s. This data rate occurs if an EEP with a coderate of 0.8 is selected. Audio receivers generally will be capable to decode one or several MSC Subchannels, but will not contain decoders for all possible data services. Therefore, the source for the data to be carried on the Receiver Data Interface (RDI) is the output bit stream of the channel decoder of a DAB receiver. Dedicated decoders for data applications, computers, etc., but also devices for audio postprocessing and recording can be connected to the DAB receiver through this interface

Normative reference (6)  

(1) Date of ratification (dor) date when the Technical Board notes the approval of an EN (and HD for CENELEC), from which time the standard may be said to be approved

(2) Date of availability (dav) date when the definitive text in the official language versions of an approved CEN/CENELEC publication is distributed by the Central Secretariat

(3) Date of announcement (doa) latest date by which the existence of an EN (and HD for CENELEC), a TS or a CWA has to be announced at national level

(4) Date of publication (dop) latest date by which an EN has to be implemented at national level by publication of an identical national standard or by endorsement

(5) Date of withdrawal (dow) latest date by which national standards conflicting with an EN (and HD for CENELEC) have to be withdrawn

(6) This list of normative references is purely indicative. The only official list of normative reference is the list of the published standard.
