SAN JOSE, Calif., Jan. 29, 2013 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- DSP Group®, Inc. (Nasdaq:DSPG), a leading global provider of wireless chipset solutions for converged communications, and LS Research (LSR), a leading provider of wireless modules and design services for Smart Home, Smart Energy and healthcare, announced today that the companies have jointly developed a DECT Ultra Low Energy (ULE) system on module aimed at the Home Control, home automation, healthcare, and other vertical markets. The solution will dramatically reduce time to market and ease integration for OEM's planning to add DECT/ULE support to their product portfolio.
As part of this collaboration, DSP Group provided the semiconductor system, consisting of a DECT ULE module powered by DSP Group's DECT baseband IC and a full DECT ULE stack.
