The O3+, which features an Ethernet, CAN and USB interface, is running modern processing algorithms that made the success of the Octopus Chip series: fast and accurate channel estimation, multipath rejection, Doppler Effect compensation and MRC diversity, detailed the company. 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.

The Octopus 3+ is AEC-Q100 qualified and available in a 14mm x 14mm BGA package.
