DSP Group's ULE SoC delivers the benefits of ultra-low power and unparalleled range to Climax’s new suite of IoT products

LAS VEGAS, Jan. 04, 2017 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- DSP Group®, Inc. (NASDAQ:DSPG) a leading global provider of wireless chipset solutions for converged communications, announced today that Climax, a leading supplier of wireless home security systems, has selected DSP Group's advanced ULE (Ultra Low Energy) SoC (System-on-a-Chip) solution for its new smart home suite of products.

The ULE SoCs will be integrated in a rich set of smart home products by Climax including door contact, PIR sensor, battery-operated siren, Smart Thermostat, smart mini smoke detector and LED light bulb. Climax new devices leverage key ULE attributes including high fidelity, superior range, two-way real-time audio and video, as well as ultra-low power consumption, which allows battery-operated devices to work for years. Climax used DSP Group’s DHAN-S module which offers application developers a turn-key platform for ULE nodes, whether battery- or AC-powered. Built around the company’s DHX91 chipset, DSP Group’s DHAN-S module is easily integrated into the smallest of smart home nodes. The module can serve as a wireless connectivity channel for an application running on an external microcontroller unit (MCU) or can act as a standalone solution using the DHX91’s internal ARM926® processor.

“We are excited to work with Climax and further increase our ULE eco system," said Yosi Brosh, CVP of Sales, Korea & Taiwan at DSP Group. “ULE technology is receiving solid attention and market traction due to its unparalleled benefits, making it the ideal technology for a wide variety of IoT applications.”

"We chose ULE for our smart home system due to ULE’s interference-free frequency bands, long secured range and RF robustness,” said Andrew Ho, R&D director of Climax. “We believe that ULE, and the underlying DECT technology, is one of the safest, strongest and secure networks when compared to its counterparts. DSP Group's DHX91 is a perfect fit for IoT smart sensors, offering the right combination of cost, performance, low power and ease of integration.”
