MILPITAS, Calif., Aug. 31, 2018 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- DSP Group®, Inc. (NASDAQ:DSPG), a leading global provider of wireless chipset solutions for converged communications, today announced that AwoX (EURONEXT:AWOX), a leading smart light brand, incorporates DSP Group's advanced ULE (Ultra Low Energy) technology into their new connected LED bulb products.

AwoX selected DSP Group's DHX91 low-power chipset solution featuring voice-enabled ULE to add home automation features to its LED bulbs. ULE has become the technology-of-choice for companies looking for a mature and proven standards-based communication protocol with a number of advantages, including:

  • Interference-free communication using a dedicated licensed spectrum
  • Real time voice and video inherently supported by the standard
  • Years of battery life with low power consumption

"We are thrilled to expand our IoT ecosystem by partnering with AwoX, a leading provider of smart home technologies and retail products," said Tali Chen, CVP Corporate Development & Chief Evangelist from DSP Group.  "LED bulbs play a pivotal role in Awox' innovative IoT smart home offering, leading mass market adoption of such smart home services and propelled by an upcoming roll-out by two leadings service providers, we are excited to see the growing momentum in ULE adoption across more smart home products and countries worldwide."

"DSP Group's ULE technology offers us a unique combination of superb range, interference-free spectrum band and extremely simple installation while combined with operators boxes, which are vital for our customers," said Alain Molinié, President at AwoX. "Given the growing momentum and increasing adoption of ULE technology, it was just a natural step for us to add ULE technology to our offering."

DSP Group's DHX91 allows AwoX LED bulbs to communicate wirelessly within the home network and provides a complete secure SoC (system on a chip) including a digital baseband controller, ultra-low energy module supporting worldwide DECT/DECT ULE, hibernation mode, various peripherals, RF transceiver, and audio and video capabilities. As smart homes are becoming more reliant on voice user interface (VUI), DSP Group helps set AwoX apart with bulbs that are ready for the smart home of today and tomorrow.
