Jan 30, 2013 (Datamonitor via COMTEX) --
DSP Group, Inc., a provider of wireless chipset solutions for converged communications, has released its DHX91 DECT Ultra Low Energy, or ULE, chipset, addressing the requirements of Smart Home and Smart Energy devices.
According to the company, the new DHX91 chipset is an integrated system on a chip (SoC), enabling Ultra Low Energy (ULE) DECT wireless communication for Smart Home and Smart Energy applications such as home automation, security, monitoring, metering, healthcare and others.
The DHX91 chipset includes technologies, such as a Ultra Low Energy block, a digital baseband controller based on advanced ARM9 core, an RF transceiver, power amplifiers, various peripherals, and enhanced hardware accelerators for voice and video applications. The DHX91 is offered in various cost/performance optimized configurations, the company said.
The DHX91's small footprint and high integration allows for compact designs. The DSP Group's DECT ULE module meets the demands of HAN devices such as door magnets, healthcare pendants, smoke and motion detectors, AC outlets, and more. DSP Group provides full hardware and software reference designs for the DHX91 in order to minimize time to market and reduce cost and risk for home automation device manufacturers, the company added.
"The DHX91 enables best-in-class DECT ULE products that fully leverage the merits of DECT technology - such as licensed, interference-free frequency bands, long range, RF robustness, wall penetration, voice and video support while reducing power consumption to sub 1uA in hibernation mode," said Jan Abelev, Corporate vice president of Product Management at DSP Group. "Combining the many commercial values of mass-deployed DECT technology with low system and installation cost, DECT ULE is a natural choice for operators, service providers and the DIY market. With the introduction of DHX91, manufacturers have a new advanced tool for delivering DECT ULE devices," he concluded.
