Micronas GmbH has announced that its MAS 352yH series of audio co-processors will integrate Dolby Laboratories; Pro Logic II decoder, to bridge the TV audio entertainment gap between two-channel audio and the fully-fledged surround sound of 5.1-channel discrete systems.

Pro Logic II is the next generation of Dolby Surround Pro Logic decoding technology and is claimed by Dolby Laboratories to be the most natural-sounding matrix decoding technology for converting standard two-channel stereo into multichannel surround sound.

The MAS 352yH family of audio DSPs can be used as a coprocessor to the MSP 34xy TV-Audio processor as well as surround sound decoder in home audio and car audio systems. To convert mid-range to high-end TVs to a multichannel home cinema set, a MAS 352yH is placed beside the MSP to convert stereo into multichannel audio.

The MAS 352yH family consists of the MAS 3529H, MAS 3526H, and MAS 3527H device. The MAS 3529H includes a Dolby Pro Logic II and Dolby Digital decoders for multichannel and virtual surround sound, while the MAS 3526H only has a Dolby Pro Logic II decoder for multichannel and virtual surround sound. The MAS 3527H offers virtual surround sound support and has Dolby Pro Logic II and Dolby Digital decoders.
