Siena

Siena is a comprehensive module for DAB/DAB+ radio. It has a reduced form factor based on the highly integrated Kino 4 digital radio System on a Chip (SoC)

  • Description

    Siena is Frontier reduced form factor module based on the highly integrated Kino 4 digital radio System on a Chip (SoC).
    With no bulky connector (the module is soldered directly to the application PCB) Siena is the world’s smallest DAB/DAB+/FM radio module. Designed to provide digital radio functionality to customer products, Siena offers a high-performance, low-cost solution to a wide range of digital audio products.

    Capable of supporting a full colour display and Slideshow technology. Slideshow allows colourful displays to run alongside the radio station’s audio to provide extra information, such as, track details, web information, weather maps or traffic updates.

    Siena can be incorporated into customer audio systems acting as a slave digital radio system for host MCUs or as the master processor. In addition, Siena introduces a host of state-of-the-art technologies to optimise power consumption, RF and audio performance to provide a market leading end-user experience.
