None that I've seen.

DVB and DAB are completely different.  DVB does have radio, but that's
really just an audio only mpeg stream.  DAB is a standard created
specifically for digital radio transmission over the airwaves.

I've seen a PCI DAB card in development, but that was a few years ago
and it was never released.

It'll support DVB radio, but not what you want which is DAB.
