I'm trying to identify the manufacturer and component from a Belkin tunecast (Lightning) to FM transmitter device. I've searched through a couple of logo sites and Google and was not successful.

The part number being only numbers does not help either :(

Grainy image of chip with logo (arrow bent into a circle) and numbers 8006, 391431, UU08

    \$\begingroup\$ As usual, context would help. \$\endgroup\$ – Marcus Müller Jan 16 '18 at 8:32

    \$\begingroup\$ As Marcus says. We need to know where you found the chip (what product), more details on the surrounding circuitry (a photo), and possibly even an approximate dimension. \$\endgroup\$ – Tom Carpenter Jan 16 '18 at 8:42
  • \$\begingroup\$ This is in a Belkin tunecast (Lightning) to FM transmitter device. I figured for identification purposes (especially the logo) context would not matter. I'll remember next time to add more information. \$\endgroup\$ – Jacques Jan 16 '18 at 13:02

It's a Quintic QN8006B High Performance Digital FM Transceiver in a QFN-24 type package.

For confirmation, here is a picture of one: enter image description here

    \$\begingroup\$ There's so many semiconductor companies that I've never heard of. This particular one has practically only one product, FM chips, since 2015 NXP seems to have bought the bluetooth division. \$\endgroup\$ – Marcus Müller Jan 16 '18 at 10:24

    \$\begingroup\$ Thank you Tom, you found the needle in the haystack. Out of curiosity, how/where did you find this? \$\endgroup\$ – Jacques Jan 16 '18 at 13:06
  • \$\begingroup\$ Not sure how Tom did it, but when I search google for "FM transmitter 8006 chip" it's the 4th result. \$\endgroup\$ – JPhi1618 Jan 16 '18 at 15:32
  • \$\begingroup\$ @Jacques I typed "QFN24 8006" into Google. \$\endgroup\$ – Tom Carpenter Jan 16 '18 at 15:57
