Frontier Silicon Ltd Key Developments

Frontier Silicon Brings Spotify Connect to Harman Kardon Networked AV Receivers

Frontier Silicon announced that its Chorus 3 connected audio processor has been updated to add Spotify Connect and other network audio functionality to a range of Harman Kardon's Audio Video Receivers (AVRs). The Chorus 3 processor supports streaming Internet Radio and audio playback from DLNA/UPnP or USB devices using a wide range of formats including MP3, AAC+, WMA, WAV, FLAC and LPCM. The firmware provided with the chip includes a highly dependable networking stack, providing a cost effective solution for high quality connected audio systems such as AVRs, Hi-Fi tuners, Wireless speakers, and Home Theatre in a Box (HTiB). The Harman Kardon AVR 151 /161 AVRs (pictured) are high performance 5.1 channel networked AV receivers, with multiple connectivity options including Ethernet, HDMI, Bluetooth, and USB. The latest iteration of Chorus 3 firmware adds Spotify Connect capability to the AVRs, allowing Spotify users to access their favourite tracks and playlists directly from the receivers.

Frontier Multi-Room Solution Achieves Mass Market Adoption

Frontier Silicon has recently launched an upgrade to its award-winning Venice 6.5 Wi-Fi connected audio module. The company announced that a majority of existing customers have signed up to take the over-the-air software upgrade, which turns Venice 6.5 based products already in the market into multi-room capable devices, which are able to interoperate freely with each other.

Frontier Silicon Launches Verona 2, New Dab Digital Radio Module

Frontier Silicon launched Verona 2, a new DAB digital radio module based on its fourth generation Kino 4 chip. The Verona 2 module is the world's first digital radio solution based on a chip which integrates RF, baseband, application processor, audio decode and DAC functionality on a single piece of silicon. This technology is the product of $12 million investment and builds on earlier generations of Frontier Silicon's Kino chip series - the world's best-selling digital radio ICs with over 20 million units sold. The key benefits of Verona 2 are: 50% lower power consumption than Verona 1; enhanced performance and functionality; lower cost than previous solutions; modular form factor for shorter time to market and UK Digital Tick compliant. The Verona 2 module will power all major categories of consumer DAB digital radio devices - in particular, portable radios (with entry level models retailing at under $30), clock radios, docks, home audio systems and radio receivers with Bluetooth connectivity. Over the next 18 months, Frontier will introduce a range of new functionality based on the Kino 4 solution with a particular focus on automotive aftermarket products (especially, automotive adapters). Verona 2 is sampling now to selected customers and demonstrations are available at Frontier's exclusive IFA demo suite.
