This LSI (MNZSW20QAUB) is an integrated LSI on which the basic vehicle audio functions (CD/USB playback, AM/FM radio, and audio backend) are combined on a single chip. By completely integrating the radio frontend (RF circuits) on a single chip, peripheral components can be greatly reduced, reducing the space required for circuit boards and enabling the production of vehicle audio systems at a lower cost.
By putting RF-CMOS completely on single chip, digital assist technology1 is achieved, basic reception capabilities of AM/FM radio are improved, and the number of required peripheral components can be reduced (by 55% compared to conventional products)2.
1 Digitalization of various types of signal processing such as noise removal, etc.
2 Compared to Panasonic's previous-generation LSI.
