Technical news on the digital radio front overseas:
Frontier Silicon said it has a new Eureka-147 digital radio module for the auto industry. It says the Roadster module allows carmakers to factory-install Eureka-147 radios in the dash.
Typical applications for the module include integrated head units, automotive DAB modules, telematics and navigation units.
The company says Roadster is self-contained, containing flash memory for the program
and data storage, and additional random access memory for extended functionality. A suite of firmware included in the module for use in automotive includes DAB to FM linking, which Frontier says is essential for seamless audio listening in a car when it moves from an area with DAB service transmission to one where there is no DAB service transmission.
