DSP Group and Conexant partner on Video-Over-DECT solution for ULE home monitoring



DSP, a leading global provider of wireless chipset solutions
for converged communications and Conexant Systems, an audio and
imaging innovation leader, announced a joint reference design for
a high-quality, low bit-rate and cost-effective video over DECT/ULE

DSP Group's DHX chipset family is a highly-integrated single-chip (SoC)
solution for ULE (Ultra Low Energy) technology - the next generation of
home automation and monitoring standards, which offers the advantages
of superior range, video and audio support over DECT, long battery
life, and DIY installation. ULE products also benefit from a dedicated
frequency band, which enables interference-free operation.

Conexant's CX93610 is a low power, small footprint mixed signal
Application-Specific Standard Product (ASSP) for JPEG / DIFT
(Differential) Motion JPEG encoder applications with a 656 camera
interface. Part of Conexant's ImagingSmart(TM) solutions, the CX93610
significantly increases video-over-DECT performance by reducing the
required bandwidth and is ideally suited for cordless camera security
solutions that require visual verification.

The integration of Conexant's CX93610 DIFT JPEG encoder with DSP
Group's DHX reference design brings a cost-efficient, low power and
high image compression solution for PIR sensors with video visual
intercom, visual door phones, baby monitors, and remote home monitoring
and security.

"We are excited to be working with a market leader such as Conexant to
enable our DECT/ULE chipset with best-in-class video-over-DECT
capabilities," said Daniel Estrakh, DECT Product Line Manager for DSP
Group. "By enabling better resolution and higher FPS (frames per
seconds) this new reference design expands our portfolio of ULE
applications for home monitoring and automation along with a HD voice
quality over DECT."

"We've designed our Imaging Smart product line for low power and high
visual quality," said Mike Green, Conexant product line director. "Our
partnership with DSP Group enriches our offering for video-over-DECT
applications for home monitoring and surveillance. This mutual
reference design will add value to Conexant's CX93610 offering and a
variety of end applications."
