DSP Group at MWC 2015: Enabling Best-in-Class Voice Enhancement and Always-On Solutions for Mobile, Wearable and IoT Applications

LOS ALTOS, Calif., March 2, 2015 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- DSP Group®, Inc. (Nasdaq:DSPG) a leading global provider of wireless chipset solutions for converged communications, will showcase its portfolio of leading solutions for mobile, wearable and IoT applications at Mobile World Congress 2015.

Addressing the growing demand for always-on smart voice and sensor fusion in both mobile devices and IoT applications, and leveraging its extensive expertise in voice processing and low power signal processing, DSP Group will demonstrate best-in-class technologies at the upcoming MWC:

  • Always-On Functionality – device activation and operation via voice commands with low power consumption
  • Sensor Hub – low-power sensor fusion algorithms for user gesture tracking and context awareness
  • Voice Enhancements – HDClear™ noise cancellation and Acoustic Echo Canceller (AEC) solutions, delivering unparalleled voice quality and call intelligibility
  • ULE – Best-in-wireless solution, ideally suited for smart home and IoT applications

Always-On Voice with Extremely Low Power Consumption

DSP Group's technology enables a touch-less user interface featuring smooth voice commands, voice triggering and device wake-up from sleep mode. At the same time, solutions from DSP Group offer extremely low power consumption – thereby dramatically improving system performance and user experience without compromising on mobile and wearable device battery life while running always-on applications.

Sensor Hub Functions for Context Awareness

DSP Group's low power sensor fusion functions capture data from multiple sensors such as microphones, biometrics, accelerometers, gyroscopes, and magnetometers, and also from environmental sensors such as light level, color, temperature, pressure, and humidity gauges. Featuring advanced sensory fusion algorithms, solutions from DSP Group provide simultaneous analysis of data from multiple sensor sources – making mobile accessories more intelligent and environment-aware at very low power consumption.

Unparalleled Voice Quality with HDClear™

DSP Group's HDClear features our best in class noise cancellation technology and field-proven Acoustic Echo Canceller (AEC) that dramatically improves user voice experience, delivering unparalleled call quality and intelligibility. When integrated in smartphones, wearable devices and other mobile devices, HDClear achieves more effective isolation of voice from surrounding environmental sounds. HDClear substantially reduces echo in any holding position - even in environments with high ambient noise levels.

Voice-Managed IoT Solutions with ULE

DSP Group offers ULE-based solutions that provide high fidelity, superior range, two-way real-time audio and video, and ultra-low power consumption that allows battery-operated devices to work for years - making it the ultimate choice for IoT applications.

"MWC is a great opportunity to showcase our portfolio of new and innovative solutions including unparalleled smart voice processing, voice quality and intelligibility for mobile and wearable devices. Our innovative products for IoT and mobile were designed to address the growing needs for smarter, lower-power and always-on processing," said Ofer Elyakim, CEO of DSP Group.

Mobile World Congress 2015 takes place in Barcelona, Spain from March 2nd to 5th. DSP Group will be located at room 2A32MR in Hall 2.
