Parrot unveils its latest SDR chip “O3+”: worldwide radio reception combined with Parrot connectivity solutions

 

Parrot Automotive, a leading player in the field of Connected Automotive Infotainment and the best-in-class provider of radio solutions in mobility, is proud to introduce the Octopus 3+.

Building upon the market-proven Octopus 3, Parrot “O3+” takes digital and analog radio reception to the next level. The current generation is already deployed through major European, Japanese and Chinese OEMs and enables global radio reception: AM, FM, DAB, DAB+, DRM, DRM+, DVB-T2 Lite and HD Radio* standards. Aside from this worldwide tuner, the Octopus 3+ embeds an ARM Cortex-A5 processor with a fully-featured Linux system running Parrot well-known connectivity middleware for Bluetooth, telephony, voice recognition, media, etc. The chip also features an Ethernet, CAN and USB interface.

The O3+ is running the state of the art processing algorithms that made the success of the Octopus Chip Series: fast and accurate channel estimation, multipath rejection, Doppler Effect compensation and MRC diversity. Thanks to its background scanning and diversity capacities, the Octopus 3+ is also an all-in-one high-end radio solution. As a result, it enables best-in-class reception of radio in motion, even at very high speeds. The Octopus 3+addresses all major radio standards deployed throughout the world, thus providing car makers with a single solution for global deployment, lowering R&D, testing and qualification costs. The Octopus 3+ plays its part in building an increasingly connected in-vehicle environment at an affordable cost.

In addition, this universal component delivers the processing power required by any variation of smart antenna or media box application. The Octopus 3+ is offered to all major Tier-1 auto suppliers as a reference design.

“We are proud to bring this cutting edge tuner-processor to the automotive market: the Octopus 3+ enables worldwide tuner capabilities and media features,” says Éric Riyahi, Executive Vice-President at Parrot Automotive.
