We introduce ${\varphi}$-frames in $L^2$(G), as a generalization of a-frames defined in [8], where G is a locally compact Abelian group and ${\varphi}$ is a topological automorphism on G. We give a characterization of ${\varphi}$-frames with regard to usual frames in $L^2$(G) and show that ${\varphi}$-frames share several useful properties with frames. We define the associated ${\varphi}$-analysis and ${\varphi}$-preframe operators, with which we obtain criteria for a sequence to be a ${\varphi}$-frame or a ${\varphi}$-Bessel sequence. We also define ${\varphi}$-Riesz bases in $L^2$(G) and establish equivalent conditions for a sequence in $L^2$(G) to be a ${\varphi}$-Riesz basis.
