DSP Group and LS Research Launch DECT/ULE System on Module

Companies Extend Partnership From DECT to DECT ULE for New System on Module,
Design Services for Home Control, Healthcare and Other Verticals

SAN JOSE, Calif., Jan. 29, 2013 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- DSP Group^®, Inc.
(Nasdaq:DSPG), a leading global provider of wireless chipset solutions for
converged communications, and LS Research (LSR), a leading provider of
wireless modules and design services for Smart Home, Smart Energy and
healthcare, announced today that the companies have jointly developed a DECT
Ultra Low Energy (ULE) system on module aimed at the Home Control, home
automation, healthcare, and other vertical markets. The solution will
dramatically reduce time to market and ease integration for OEM's planning to
add DECT/ULE support to their product portfolio.

As part of this collaboration, DSP Group provided the semiconductor system,
consisting of a DECT ULE module powered by DSP Group's DECT baseband IC and a
full DECT ULE stack. This system was productized to fit the needs of the
different vertical markets. The modules built around DSP Group's DECT ULE IC
and software stack are aligned with the latest DECT ULE and upper layer
protocol standard drafts. LSR's production-ready design enables fast time to
market, and minimizes the R&D effort required for the integration of DECT
ULE-based Smart Home and Smart Energy features.

"By providing a system on module based on DECT/ULE standards for OEM's, system
integrators and service providers, we facilitate the integration of DECT/ULE
features, while lowering costs, speeding time to market, and minimizing risk,"
said Jen Saroto, Executive VP at LS Research. "The integration of DECT ULE
technology enhances our offering to the Home Automation and Healthcare
markets, enabling us to deliver simple and straightforward solutions for
device makers and full system solution providers. It's been our pleasure to
work with DSP Group, the market leader in DECT ULE technology, to achieve this
goal," he concluded.

"We are delighted to partner with a market leader in wireless modules and
design services like LSR to provide a robust platform for ODM's, OEM's and
system integrators," said Jan Abelev, Corporate Vice President of Product
Management at DSP Group. "We see DECT ULE-integrated systems on module as an
excellent vehicle to allow OEM's to bring advanced home automation and
security systems to market more rapidly," he continued.
