DSP Group Introduces DECT Ultra Low Energy DHX91 Chipset

Highly-Integrated, Extremely Low Power DECT ULE Solution Ideal for Smart Home
and Smart Energy Applications

SAN JOSE, Calif., Jan. 28, 2013 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- DSP Group^®, Inc.
(Nasdaq:DSPG), a leading global provider of wireless chipset solutions for
converged communications, announced today the release of its cutting-edge
DHX91 DECT Ultra Low Energy (ULE) chipset, addressing the demanding
requirements of Smart Home and Smart Energy devices.

The new DHX91 chipset is a flexible, high-performance and highly-integrated
system on a chip (SoC), enabling Ultra Low Energy (ULE) DECT wireless
communication for Smart Home and Smart Energy applications such as home
automation, security, monitoring, metering, healthcare and others. Combining
unique DECT ULE features with a high level of integration and optimized
connectivity to various types of sensors, the DHX91 is the most cost-optimized
solution for Home Area Network (HAN) devices.

The DHX91 chipset includes rich set of technologies, such as a cutting-edge
Ultra Low Energy block, a digital baseband controller based on advanced ARM9™
core, a state-of-the-art RF transceiver, power amplifiers, various
peripherals, and enhanced hardware accelerators for voice and video
applications. The DHX91 is offered in various cost/performance optimized
configurations.

The DHX91's small footprint and high integration allows for highly compact
designs. The DSP Group's DECT ULE module, demonstrated at CES 2013 in Las
Vegas, meets the demands of HAN devices such as door magnets, healthcare
pendants, smoke and motion detectors, AC outlets, and more. DSP Group provides
full hardware and software reference designs for the DHX91 in order to
minimize time to market and reduce cost and risk for home automation device
manufacturers.

"The DHX91 enables best-in-class DECT ULE products that fully leverage the
merits of DECT technology - such as licensed, interference-free frequency
bands, long range, RF robustness, wall penetration, voice and video support -
while reducing power consumption to sub 1uA in hibernation mode," said Jan
Abelev, Corporate Vice President of Product Management at DSP Group.
"Combining the many commercial values of mass-deployed DECT technology with
low system and installation cost, DECT ULE is a natural choice for operators,
service providers and the DIY market. With the introduction of DHX91,
manufacturers have a new advanced tool for delivering DECT ULE devices," he
concluded.
