SAN JOSE, Calif., Jan. 29, 2014 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- DSP Group ®, Inc. (Nasdaq:DSPG), a leading global provider of wireless chipset solutions for converged communications and Conexant Systems Inc., an audio and imaging innovation leader, today announced a joint reference design for a high-quality, low bit-rate and cost-effective video over DECT/ULE solution. 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™ 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."
