Vendors collaborate on lower-power DAB receiver module

April 2004
Portable Design;Apr2004, Vol. 10 Issue 4, p8
This article reports that increased interest from mobile phone manufacturers in the integration of dynamically allocable bandwidth (DAB) for audio and data applications has led the Samsung Electro-Mechanics and the Frontier Silicon companies to jointly develop a miniature low-power DAB receiver module. Specifically targeted for integration into space-constrained mobile phone handsets and other communications devices such as personal digital assistants and smartphones, the module measures 30 by 38 millimeters and is 2.5 millimeters high. Based on the Chorus DAB processor, which is already at the heart of more than 600,000 DAB radios, the new module has the capability of decoding DAB across all the audio and data bandwidths required by the DAB standard.
