Delphi To Supply XM Radio Receivers For Selected GM Vehicles – Delphi Automotive Systems Corp – General Motors Corp – Brief Article

Delphi Automotive Systems said that it is the first OEM manufacturer to install satellite-capable radios for an original equipment customer. Delphi satellite based receivers for XM Satellite Radio service are an option on General Motors 2002 Cadillac models this year and will be available on more than 20 additional GM models next year. Delphi Satellite Digital Audio Radio Service (SDARS) systems are offered as options on the Cadillac Seville DTS and DHS and Deville models this year.

“From the time we were first introduced to the concept of satellite radio we have supported the technology,” said Jeffrey J. Owens, president, Delphi Delco Electronics Systems. “Our early development of satellite radio technology and work with content providers for this new market is paying off. With Americans collectively spending close to 500 million hours per week in their vehicles, we believe many consumers will see the value and the benefits of satellite radio.”

Delphi received the first OEM multi-year purchase contract to build receivers for General Motors two years ago. The systems for GM include building a separate receiver box in addition to the radio to receive the satellite signal. The remote receiver box makes the radio capable of receiving the proprietary XM Satellite Radio signal through a custom chipset, Delphi said.
