DSP Group's DHX91 ULE SoC Powers Panasonic's New Home Monitoring and Control System

LOS ALTOS, Calif., Jan. 5, 2015 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- DSP Group®, Inc. (Nasdaq:DSPG) a leading global provider of wireless chipset solutions for converged communications, announced today that Panasonic has selected DSP Group's advanced ULE (Ultra Low Energy) SoC solution for its new KX-HN600 series for smart home monitoring and control. Panasonic is the leader in business and home telephone systems, unified business communications, security and surveillance systems, retail information systems, and office productivity solutions.

The new systems from Panasonic consist of an OTT Gateway, video surveillance cameras, window/door sensors, motion sensors, and smart plugs with voice capabilities – all powered by DSP Group's advanced ULE SoCs.

Panasonic's new smart home monitoring products leverage key ULE attributes including high fidelity, superior range, two-way real-time audio and video, and ultra-low power consumption - which allows battery-operated devices to work for years. DSP Group, a pioneer in this area, provides solutions that leverage the company's extensive expertise in short range wireless communications and its comprehensive DECT and ULE product portfolio.

Video-over-ULE is an ideal use case for IoT products in general and smart home systems in particular – owing to ULE's low power, dedicated frequency band, and flawless home coverage. ULE-based solutions allow video steams to be propagated to the cloud for various applications ranging from baby and room monitors to video door bells and other surveillance applications.

"We are very excited that Panasonic based its new smart home system on our DHX91 SoCs. We see it as a vote of confidence in ULE technology and its exceptional fit for smart home applications, especially wireless voice, data and video over a single RF link," said Ofer Elyakim, CEO of DSP Group. "We are confident that the new Panasonic systems will drive many new and innovative IoT product concepts," he continued.
