DAB using Software Defined Radio for the automotive industry

Fraunhofer IIS, the leading innovator of technologies for audio and multimedia systems, has been selected by Texas Instruments (TI) to provide its DAB/DAB+/T-DMB software solution for TI’s software defined radio (SDR) platform for the automotive industry.

TI’s Jacinto-based platform allows a single design to be used with multiple radio standards around the world, reducing design time and cost.

Developed for high quality DAB radio reception and fully validated for the automotive and consumer market, the Fraunhofer DAB Receiver Kit is a reference design for efficient implementation of DAB, DAB+ or T-DMB radio receivers.

Optional features such as 5.1 MPEG Surround sound or conditional access are available on request.

“We selected Fraunhofer for this SDR reference design because of its well-known reputation in the automotive market and demonstrated leadership in design, integration and implementation of digital radio technologies,” said Matthew Watson, business unit manager, Digital Radio and Infotainment unit of Texas Instruments.

“This technology expertise is complemented by Fraunhofer’s strong affiliations and connection in the WorldDMB community, allowing TI to better understand and meet our customers‘ needs.“
