SAN JOSE, Calif., Feb. 14, 2012 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- DSP Group®, Inc. (Nasdaq:DSPG), a leading global provider of wireless chipset solutions for converged communications at home and office, announced today that its VoIP chipset solution is powering the line of advanced SIP telephones offered by Panasonic, a comprehensive business solutions provider. Another milestone in the close and longstanding relationship between the two companies, the chipset solution's development was instrumental in the recent launch of Panasonic's innovative UT series of corded SIP phones.

Easily scaled to incorporate DECT technology, the new line leverages the long-term collaboration between DSP Group and Panasonic in both DECT and VoIP, as well as their respective leadership positions in cordless telephony.
