KEY FEATURES
OVERVIEW
The Tuscany FS2230 module is the latest highly flexible integrated wireless speaker
module from Frontier Silicon. Incorporating Bluetooth®, DAB/FM radio, USB, iOS and
Android smart device connectivity, Tuscany provides superior signal reception at lowpower and at a price point suitable for entry level products.
Tuscany’s flexible design enables production of audio devices with any combination
of high-performance Bluetooth, dual-band DAB/DAB+, FM with RDS and Apple®
Lightning™/USB docking at low-cost. In master mode, Tuscany removes the need for
an additional host processor and includes a USB device interface for firmware updates.
Alternatively, Tuscany can operate in simple slave mode.
The module provides all interfaces necessary for a fully functional Bluetooth wireless
speaker system with iOS docking capability and digital/analogue radio - needing only
power supply, display, keypad, audio amplifier and speakers to complete a product.
