How to Use the TEA5767 FM Radio Module - Arduino Tutorial

About: Arduino Tutorials by Team

In this tutorial you will learn how to use the TEA5767 FM radio module with Arduino uno board. These modules use I2C and are available on eBay for just a few dollars each. It has two 3.5mm jack outputs, one for antenna cable and one for headphones.

If you want to find more technical details about the TEA5767 chip you can read its datasheet here.

We will use the serial monitor of Codebender to print out the current frequency and search for next/previous stations.

Step 1: What You Will Need

For this tutorial you will need:

  • Arduino uno
  • TEA5767 FM radio module
  • Breadboard

Step 2: The Circuit

The connections are pretty easy, see the image above with the breadboard circuit schematic.

Step 3: The Code

Here's the code, embedded using Codebender!

Try downloading the codebender plugin and clicking on the "Run on Arduino" button to program your Arduino board with this sketch. And that's it, you've programmed your Arduino with this sketch.

Step 4: Testing

Press the "Connect" button to serial monitor below.

Send '+' or '-' to go to next or previous station/frequency.

Step 5: Well Done

You have successfully completed one more "How to" tutorial and you learned how to use the TEA5767 FM radio module with the Arduino uno board.

What next? You can make your own digital fm radio for your desk with LCD display and speakers, check this project here.

    Question 4 months ago on Step 3

    In the sketch for TEA5767 you are setting several variables and never using them: current_millis, the search direction.... why?

    Doesn't work. Error compiling. Nor does your ino file. Sorry.

    To run this program from Arduino IDE it requires the library TEA5767 to use the header TEA5767.h Whre can I find this library? Of course it does not works with the TEAD5767Radio library.

    You will find that library here:

    under the program there is a download with two libraries in it. the TEA5767Radio.h and the TEA5767.h
