Functional Description:

The ATR4251 is an integrated AM/FM antenna impedance matching circuit. It compensates
cable losses between the antenna (for example windshield, roof, or bumper antennas) and the
car radio which is usually placed far away from the antenna.

AM refers to the long wave (LW), medium wave (MW) and short wave (SW) frequency bands
(150 kHz to 30 MHz) that are usually used for AM transmission, and FM means any of the frequency bands used world-wide for FM radio broadcast (70 MHz to 110 MHz).
