DSP Group and CODICO Publish White Papers on ULE Technology

Oct 15, 2013

SAN JOSE, Calif., Oct. 15, 2013 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- DSP Group®, Inc. (Nasdaq:DSPG), a leading global provider of wireless chipset solutions for converged communications, announced today the release of a series of white papers focusing on Ultra Low Energy (ULE) technology. These three papers have been developed in conjunction with CODICO, a design-in distributor of high-quality active and passive electronic components and interconnect systems. They provide a detailed overview into the benefits of the ULE technology, the market applications, the advanced solutions tailored to ULE development and DSP Group's unique offering for this domain.

ULE is distinctively positioned at the forefront of competing solutions in home automation and emerging "Internet-of-Things" applications given its superior range, exceptional security, high capacity, video/audio capabilities, lowest cost of ownership and interference-free licensed spectrum. Based on proven reliability of DECT radio technology currently deployed in hundreds of millions of homes worldwide, ULE is a fully-interoperable standard developed by ETSI in conjunction with the ULE Alliance.

Analysts identify a distinct advantage in the compatibility with the traditional DECT Standard, which has been extensively proven, for the system installation of ULE products. According to Lisa Arrowsmith, associate director for connectivity at IHS (NYSE:IHS), "The ability of traditional DECT gateways that are already deployed in the field today to support ULE products with only a firmware update is a significant driving force behind the ULE technology. This can be a major advantage to operators looking to offer additional services based on low-power wireless technologies in order to increase user revenues or reduce customer churn, as separate gateways do not have to be deployed".

All white papers are accessible at DSP Group's website ( and at the news section of CODICO website.

"ULE – A Technology Overview" provides an insight into the market overview, technology foundation and applicable markets.

The companion white papers look at each of the concentrator and sensor development, and the ideal technology solution for implementation.
