London - Sep 7, 2013 - Frontier Silicon announced the launch of AUTODAB 2.0, a new DAB/DAB+ radio solution for automotive aftermarket applications. Radio listening in cars forms a large percentage of overall radio listening, and so provision for this sector will be an important consideration in the UK government's decisions on radio digital switch over.

AUTODAB 2.0 will be presented in Frontier Silicon's demo room at IFA 2013.

Many existing automotive DAB/DAB+ systems employ dual tuners to simultaneously search for alternative signal sources while listening to a station. If the current station signal is lost the radio can switch to an alternative, presenting a seamless experience to the user. AUTODAB 2.0 performs the same tasks using only a single DAB tuner, significantly reducing cost and complexity.

Features and benefits of AUTODAB 2.0:
■ Constantly updates available services as a background task without the need for dual tuners
■ Service following automatically maintains a selected station across different DAB regions or after interruption to reception.
■ DL Plus supports enhanced text services.
■ Data out provides embedded DAB service data such as EPG and TPEG.
■ Audio concealment masks audio break-up in poor reception areas.
■ Purpose-built test and development tools reduces time to market.

AUTODAB 2.0 is available now and runs on Frontier Silicon's Venice 7A automotive module or Kino 3 and Apollo 2 chipset. Development tools including AUTODRIVE 2.0 and a choice of hardware test platforms can be provided on request.
