Sirius has a new, smaller chipset design, allowing it to introduce integrated in-dash AM/FM/CD in-dash radio.
The chipset, designed by Agere, took eight months to design, said Larry Pesce, VP of product management and strategic planning, in an interview with Radio World at the CES show.
Sirius has reduced the number of chipsets in each radio from eight to four, allowing it to save money on component costs. Five new plug-and-play models are on display at CES.
In 2002, Sirius fans could choose among three receivers; now, its partners are showing 20 new receivers at CES, bringing the total to 40 possible radio options for Sirius.
