KIRCHHEIM & TECK, Germany -- January 29, 2013

Dialog Semiconductor plc (FWB: DLG), a provider of highly integrated power
management, audio and short range wireless technologies, announced today that
its SmartPulse(TM) connectivity solution has been selected by Everspring for a
new range of internet-enabled smart home solutions. By using the DECT ULE
(Ultra Low Energy) standard, Dialog is able to provide interference-free
wireless connectivity with the widest reach throughout consumers' homes and
low deployment costs.

Dialog's SmartPulse wireless connectivity chipset will enable consumers to
monitor and control Everspring's new range of smart plugs, smoke and motion
detectors, security cameras and thermostats via a smartphone or tablet. These
solutions will make it easier for consumers to reduce energy usage by ensuring
they haven't left electrical goods on standby, adjust heating levels in each
room and monitor security and fire alerts remotely or when they're at home.

By using the DECT ULE 1.9GHz frequency, rather than the over-crowded 2.4GHz
spectrum, SmartPulse avoids the problem of co-channel interference, where
multiple signals complete causing slow-downs in response times and devices to
drop off the network. 2.4GHz is already used by Wi-Fi network routers,
Bluetooth, microwave ovens and other competing smart home solutions, which can
result in signal conflicts, particularly in densely populated areas.

DECT ULE has the widest reach and range of any short-range wireless standard -
up to 300 meters with a link budget of 123dB - which means it can provide
ceiling to cellar connectivity and beyond into consumers' gardens through
walls, windows and the roof. This makes it easy to reliably pair each device
with an IP gateway, which could be a broadband router or DECT phone base
station with an Ethernet connection. Dialog's SmartPulse technology uses a
minimal amount of energy and, depending on the application use case, can be
powered by a standard AAA battery pack for around ten years.

Kevin Wang, Sales Director at Everspring commented, 'We believe Dialog's DECT
ULE-based SmartPulse solution is the most reliable, easy-to-deploy, low energy
smart home solution on market. Our smart home solutions will provide consumers
with the technology they need to make their homes more comfortable, save
energy, money and help the environment too.'

Sean McGrath, Vice President of Connectivity, Automotive and Industrial
Business Group commented, 'We're delighted that Everspring has chosen Dialog's
technology for its new home automation solutions to join our growing range of
ecosystem partners. With the advent of Dialog's SmartPulse solution, which
provides the interference-free, plug-and-play connectivity that consumers
want, and the always-on power of smartphones and tablets, we believe this is a
market poised for significant growth.'
