resses the market need for a solution that supports all Eureka-147 based standards, including DAB and DAB+ and DMB-Audio. Speaking at the Broadcast Asia conference in Singapore this week, Frontier Silicon CEO Anthony Sethill outlined in his paper the reasons for bringing such a solution to market. "Globally, the market has now entered a phase where flexibility is required to address the diverse standards requirements of each country—for example, the U.K. is driven by enhanced audio content delivered through DAB, whereas rich media content based on DMB is a priority for France, and Australia requires bandwidth optimization using DAB+," Sethill said. "With a unified receiver solution available to enable these Eureka-147 implementations in their products, manufacturers will be strongly placed to address broadcasters' needs in each country, regardless of any variant chosen, with a single low-cost module from Frontier Silicon." Commenting on interoperability, Quentin Howard, president of WorldDMB, said, "WorldDMB is working with the EBU, EICTA, and with the industry in Germany, France and the United Kingdom to create a consensus for standardized receivers. Frontier Silicon's announcement of a receiver module supporting all the audio standards within Eureka 147 DAB, DAB+ and DMB is a positive step towards enabling a pan-European digital radio market." Frontier Silicon's unified digital radio module will be based on the Venice 5.1 receiver unveiled earlier this year in Australia. The new module is a low-cost receiver for DMB-Audio, DAB, DAB+ and FM-RDS, and is a drop-in replacement, both electrically and mechanically, for existing products designed using the company's successful Venice 5 module range, which already provides a basis for the vast majority of digital radio products shipped in 2007 and 2008. As with all Frontier Silicon audio modules, the unified digital radio module will include all interfaces necessary for a fully functional product, needing only power supply, display, keypad, audio amplifier and speakers to complete a radio. It will start sampling in Q3 08, and be available for volume production by the end of 2008.
