KeyStone Semiconductor Corp. (KeyStone), a leading fabless semiconductor developer of advanced digital radio technologies announced today that its 2nd generation single-chip FM/DAB/DAB+/DMB-R receiver IC, KSW8650, offers the lowest-cost turn-key solutions to support German DAB+ slide show, EPG, and TPEG applications. Integrated with triple-band RF receiver, demodulator, DSP, micro control unit, flash memory, stereo DAC, battery detector, power management, etc, KSW8650 is the state-of-the-art digital radio IC that meets German lowest-power and lowest-cost multimedia DAB market demands.
KSW8650, based on KeyStone’s proprietary digital radio technologies, provides not only decoded AAC+ audio signal but also digital data to display slide show, to present EPG, and to support TPEG on various applications. Unlike typical DAB modules that fail to support slide show, EPG, and TPEG, KeyStone’s single-chip KSW8650 is the only low-cost and low-power digital radio single-chip that satisfies German DAB+ rich-content market demands. A live demonstration clip on German DAB+ slide show by von Michael Praetorius at IFA Berlin is available at YouTube.
KeyStone offers a series of advanced highly integrated single-chip digital radio IC family including
- KSW6080 to support DSP-based FM/RDS/RBDS for Apple iOS and Android platforms,
- KSW8080 to support traditional FM/DAB/RDS/RBDS,
- KSW8290 to support new FM/DAB/DAB+/DMB/RDS/RBDS,
- KSW8650 to support advanced FM/DAB/DAB+/DMB/RDS/RBDS/SLS/EPG/TPEG, and
- KSW2280 to support host-based applications with integrated RF/demodulator circuits.
All KeyStone single-chip digital radio IC family is built-in with 5 pre-set EQ in Bass Boost, Jazz, Live, Vocal, and Acoustic mode to work with patented two-way wireless digital radio technologies for transceiving data such as radio station information, slide show, EPG, TPEG, etc. from Tsunami modules to Apple and Android platforms and vice versa.
KeyStone DAB single-chip family, all housed in a small 1.1 cm x 0.8 cm uBGA package, is world’s first DAB receiver IC to build-in multiple languages including Chinese and to support both LCM and OLED display at no extra cost to OEMs. Company also offers low-cost industry-grade DAB single-chip modules that are certified by stringent Electromagnetic Compatibility (EMC) BS EN 55022: 2006 and BS EN 55013: 2001 tests with an industry-grade temperature range of -40 C to 85 C, which are required by in-car applications.
Certified by Apple, KSW8650 is employed in Apple MFI products such as LINGO iRis and iMini to offer DAB/DAB+ audio, slide show and EPG. LINGO products are available at German Gravis, Apple Store Europe, and authorized iStore worldwide. Newly introduced LINGO iDas is an Apple MFI docking station based on KeyStone’s patented “BigFish” technology to allow Apple idevices and Android phones to wirelessly control DAB dock stations by a free app DAB GO!. LINGO iVy is world’s first and smallest Bluetooth DAB receiver to work with smart phones.
