A short-range wireless technology and power management solutions developer, Dialog Semiconductor announced that Panasonic has adopted the DECT ULE technology for its range of wireless ultra-low energy (ULE) devices for home safety.
The recently introduced wireless SmartPulse sensor network device developed by Dialog Semiconductor is based on the DECT ULE. Products based on the technology are easy to use and combine low interference, long range and consume low power. Capable of automatically connecting to a wireless sensor network hub, these systems and can be managed remotely through the Internet by using a tablet PC, laptop or a smartphone.
The wireless sensor network ULE devices have been developed for battery-powered applications which are self-configuring, operational in the 1.9GHz frequency band and have an indoor range greater than 50m and an outdoor range of 300m. Backwards compatible, the DECT ULE facilitates the communication between wireless sensor nodes and current legacy DECT enabled Internet gateways and hubs.
The General Manager, Communications Products Platform at Panasonic System Networks, Takehisa-san stated that using the DECT ULE technology, Panasonic will be able to expand its range of cordless products. Dialog’s DECT technology has been employed in the manufacture of digital cordless phones and Dialog’s power management ICs have been used to increase the battery life of TV / media players launched by Panasonic recently.
The Chief Executive Officer of Dialog Semiconductor, Jalal Bagherli explained that the easy-to-install DECT ULE technology is ideal for use in security, smart power monitoring, home automation and health-based applications due to its ease of network configurability and low power consumption.
