London - Oct 10, 2013 - Frontier Silicon has sold 10 million units of its Chorus 3 DAB/DAB+ system-on-chip processor. Chorus 3 was launched on Oct. 10, 2008. According to Frontier Silicon, the Chorus 3 has helped the company power more than 70 percent of all in-home digital radio devices.

Chorus 3 was conceived as an advanced programmable baseband receiver, capable of receiving DAB/DAB+ broadcasts as well as receiving and decoding Internet streaming audio.
