The requirements for reliability of an automotive AM-FM-MPX receiver are discussed from four viewpoints: environment, design, manufacture, and quality-reliability assurance. Methods by which high reliability may be achieved and factors which influence multiplex radio reliability are discussed. Although much progress has been achieved, it is realized that even greater reliability is required, and the future trends for reliability improvements are presented.
