London - June 9, 2014 - Digital Radio UK, which manages the Digital Tick Mark Scheme at the request of the U.K.'s Department of Culture, Media and Sport, has granted Approved Technology status to two automotive aftermarket solutions from Frontier Silicon:

  • AUTODAB 2.1 SDK running on a Venice 7a module

  • AUTODAB 2.1 SDK running on a Shinwa DB-MF03 module

    The solutions have passed more than 1,800 separate tests – designed to ensure the performance and reliability required for the digital formats and RF environment of the future. These tests cover digital tuning, service scanning, management of service reconfiguration, character display and conducted RF performance. As automotive solutions, additional tests for traffic announcements and service following have also been passed.

    Receiver manufacturers and brands using these Frontier Silicon solutions in their aftermarket Digital Radio modules will find a significant part of the process for gaining Digital Tick Mark approval is already completed.

    The Digital Radio Certification Mark (the Digital "Tick Mark") is being introduced to assure UK consumers that devices they purchase are future-ready. The introduction of the Digital Tick Mark for radio follows the successful use of a similar scheme for the UK’s television Digital Switchover (DSO), completed in 2012.
