Frontier Silicon is the world's leading supplier of innovative semiconductor, module and software solutions for digital radio and connected audio systems. The company is a wholly-owned subsidiary of the Toumaz Group, a UK semiconductor technology group, focused on consumer connectivity and wireless healthcare. Established in 2001 as a privately-funded fabless semiconductor company, Frontier Silicon was acquired by Toumaz Limited in August 2012.
Headquartered in London, Frontier Silicon has around 130 staff, 70% engineers, with R&D centres in several locations including Cambridge, Ireland and Hong Kong and sales, support, R&D and manufacturing liaison in China and Hong Kong; sales, field engineering support in UK, Hong Kong and Japan.
Our goal is to equip receiver manufacturers with turnkey solutions to rapidly deliver sophisticated and profitable products in the highly-competitive and fast-moving consumer electronics market. Our range of platforms include the necessary hardware and software for digital radio manufacturers to develop products from start to mass production in as little as two months.
As the number one supplier to the DAB/DAB+ market and a leader in Internet connected and streaming audio, we supply practically all major consumer electronics brands, including Bang & Olufsen, Bose, Bush, Cyrus, Denon, Goodmans, Grundig, harman/kardon, Hitachi, JVC, Magic Box, Ministry of Sound, Onkyo, Panasonic, Philips, Pioneer, Pure, Revo, Roberts, Samsung, Sanyo, Sharp, Sony, TEAC and Yamaha.
Our multimode connected audio platforms support over 13,000 Internet radio stations through the Frontier Silicon on-line radio portal. Innovative on-line music services are driving forward our platforms to support more sophisticated displays and full colour touch driven graphical user interfaces as we move from mono to rich full colour UI’s.
As digital broadcast standards like DAB, DAB+ and DMB-Radio evolve, Frontier Silicon works closely with international standards bodies such as WorldDMB to ensure our products remain at the forefront of digital broadcasting technology. Such innovations as our unified receiver module enable manufacturers to produce a single digital radio for the whole of Europe and Australia. Our technology will continue to bring together the broadcast and connected audio worlds to enable highly integrated, feature-rich, low-cost multi-mode radio receivers.
