Silicon Labs' fixed-function audio software provides a complete audio post-processing solution for all analog and digital audio functions in the automotive radio head unit. The audio software includes an extensive set of user-programmable parameters that enable developers to configure the audio post-processing algorithms for different car models. The software supports the following features:
- Three independent audio post-processing paths:
- Main cabin: 4-channel or 6-channel audio
- Auxiliary: 2-channel audio (for rear seat headphones)
- Voice: audio processing for two microphone inputs
- Two tone sequence generators
- Two wave generators played from internal memory
- Development board with software tools for real-time debugging
- A library of building blocks that can be used by the developer's algorithms
- An encryption utility that secures the audio processing IP
Silicon Labs introduced its first RF-in-CMOS broadcast audio IC products nearly 12 years ago. These single-chip solutions redefined how AM/FM tuner ICs were designed into consumer electronics products by reducing component count by more than 90 percent and board space by more than 60 percent. To date, Silicon Labs has shipped more than 1.3 billion "radio-on-a-chip" ICs, culminating with the Global Eagle family, the industry's most advanced automotive radio system solution. Global Eagle designs can scale from low-cost, single-tuner AM/FM radios to high-performance systems with multiple tuners and antennas, enabling radio suppliers to leverage their R&D across multiple product lines, all with a common software API.Audio Software Availability Silicon Labs' audio software products for the Global Eagle Si47911/12 tuner IC family are available now to automotive radio suppliers through a software licensing agreement.
