The TA7642 is a AM radio receiver IC which has automatic gain and up to 72 db gain. It is cased in a TO-92 Case that looks like a transistor. The TA-7642 runs on 1.1 to 1.8 volts so a single 1 1/2 volt battery will work. The TA7642 needs very few external parts to build an AM radio. The TA-7642 needs a tuning Capacitor and Ferrite Rod Coil or also known as a loopstick antenna we sell both items.
The YS414, TA7642, UTC7642, CD7642 and KM484 are the same as the MK484 only different manufactures.
