Hsinchu, Taiwan - Jan 26, 2012 - KeyStone Semiconductor and Dutch traffic information technology company Amaryllo have announced that KeyStone's new single-chip FM/DAB/DAB+ receiver ICs, KSW86GTC and KSW86GTV, to support TPEG/SLS/DLS/DLS+ for in-car and mobile navigation applications are now available for engineering sampling.
The KSW86GTC and KSW86GTV are the first single-chip FM/DAB/DAB+/DMB receiver ICs to embed Amaryllo's proprietary dynamic traffic management IP to support the Transport Protocol Experts Group (TPEG) in navigation systems. Amaryllo's products include the Radio Dynamic Speed Advice (RDSA), which brings traffic information transfer systems into Radio Data System (RDS) and TPEG applications. Amaryllo Dynamics, a widely known API, supports dynamic traffic information such as Traffic Message Channel (TMC), TPEG, and other proprietary protocols. Millions of navigation systems employing Amaryllo Dynamics are available in both commercial and professional markets.
KSW86GTC not only supports typical digital radio reception in DAB and DAB+ but also features Slide Show (SLS), Dynamic Label Segment Plus (DLS/DLS+), Electronic Program Guide (EPG), and more importantly, TPEG to process live traffic information. While KSW86GTC meets commercial grade applications, KSW86GTV is designed and certified for stringent in-vehicle applications which it satisfies industrial grade requirements such as a wide temperature range from -40 deg C to 85 deg C and mechanic vibration tests.
