Frontier Silicon Launches Verona 2, New Dab Digital Radio Module
Sep 5 14
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.
