Pioneer Chooses Frontier Silicon for DAB/DAB+ Systems

The company responds to growing European demand

Pioneer has introduced a new range of DAB+ enabled consumer audio devices based on Frontier Silicon’s DAB technology solutions.

Pioneer’s decision to incorporate DAB technology into an extended range of models is a response to the growing demand across Europe for devices capable of receiving digital radio.

“For some time, digital radio has been established in the UK, Norway, Denmark, Switzerland and Australia, and following the launch of DAB+ in Germany in 2011, the European market is really beginning to takeoff,” said Hideaki Tsuchida, general manager for Pioneer Home Electronics Corporation’s Business Planning Division.

“In the last two years, the German market has grown significantly and following the launch of DAB+ in the Netherlands in 2013, it is clear that momentum is building across the continent – with growing signs of interest from several other countries including Italy, France, Poland, Belgium and Sweden.”
