Dialog Semiconductor unveils Smartpulse IP gateway for wireless sensor networks

Dialog Semiconductor, a provider of integrated innovative
power management, audio and short range wireless technologies, announced a
SmartPulse IP gateway reference design that enables SmartPulse and other DECT
ULE home automation wireless sensor / actuator products to be connected to the
web for remote management via smartphones, laptops and tablet PCs.

The reference design integrates Dialog’s SmartPulse
SC14CVMDECT wireless base station device and SC14452 VoIP application host
processor with 32Mb of flash memory, 16MB SDRAM, an Ethernet Phy and Ethernet

Measuring 60x100mm, the reference board is supported by
Dialog’s Rhea Clinux software development environment, which includes web
servers, TCP/IP stack and an SSH server.

Included with the reference design are two example sensor
application boards; these automatically connect with the IP gateway reference
design and enable the testing of web control systems for SmartPulse enabled

To further simplify the design process for new wireless
sensor network systems Dialog has also announced development kits for the
complete family of SmartPulse DECT ULE sensors (SC14WSMDATA, SC14WSMDECT) and
base station (SC14CVMDECT) devices.

These kits include both devices and software, providing a
simple way to create SmartPulse based systems such as wireless controlled door
locks, smoke alarms, light switches, home appliances and personal security and health-care

Launched in September Dialog’s low power wireless sensor
network devices are capable of running for up to 10 years on a single AAA
battery pack.

DECT ULE is the key enabling technology for wireless
sensor networks for home automation, healthcare, security and energy monitoring
consumer applications. Our SmartPulse reference design and development kits
will significantly speed time to market for customers entering these new
markets,” said Asmund Tielens, vice president, general manager of Dialog’s
Connectivity and Automotive & Industrial Business Group.

Recently, Dialog Semiconductor has announced
SmartPulse the world’s first family of IC based devices interoperable with the
DECT ULE (ultra low energy) wireless standard. SmartPulse has been created for
home automation, healthcare, security and energy monitoring consumer
