LOS ALTOS, Calif. -- April 15, 2013

Daintree Networks, Inc., the leading provider of networked wireless control
solutions for smart buildings, and Marvell Semiconductor, Inc. today announced
their collaboration to provide open-standard ZigBee® wireless capability
integrated into smart lighting products. The joint effort is focused initially
on using Marvell semiconductor products to enable integrated wireless LED
drivers that allow LED fixtures to interoperate with Daintree’s award-winning
open-standard ControlScope™ solution. Orama, an innovative supplier of LED
drivers, is the first company implementing this capability into its driver
product line. Fixture manufacturers using integrated open-standard wireless
LED drivers will gain access to expanding revenue opportunities in commercial
and industrial wireless lighting.

By implementing integrated wireless LED drivers, fixture manufacturers
eliminate the need for a separate wireless adapter commonly used in today’s
deployments of commercial wireless lighting control. Installation is also
easier with integrated wireless drivers. Drivers are pre-installed during
factory fixture assembly, eliminating more expensive field assembly often
required when connecting separate wireless adapters to standard drivers.
Integration dramatically reduces total equipment, installation and
commissioning project costs by $75 to $100 per fixture, enabling rapid market
adoption of wireless control solutions by building owners and operators.

Unlike existing analog control, integrated digital wireless control allows
users to experience the full potential of LED lighting and energy management.
This includes the ability to add advanced LED control features such as tunable
white color control and granular device-level power and performance

“The growing demand for standards-based wireless lighting control is leading
LED fixture manufacturers to add wireless capability to enable complete
end-to-end solutions,” says Danny Yu, Daintree’s CEO. “Marvell shares our
vision of directly integrating ZigBee wireless ICs to enable fixtures that
work seamlessly with ControlScope. We are pleased to be teaming with Marvell
to fully qualify Marvell’s ZigBee IC platform on ControlScope and to be
developing joint solutions for the market. We are excited that Orama is
adopting our combined solution and taking a leading product position with its
integrated wireless LED driver. The lighting product community is rapidly
realizing that open standards is the right way to go wireless. Open standards
foster a large market that drives down cost and development time for vendors
as well as improves product selection at lower prices for building managers.”

“As a leading LED driver and wireless semiconductor provider and a strong
advocate of open standards and interoperability, Marvell is pleased to
collaborate with Daintree and Orama to drive mass adoption of wireless smart
lighting control,” says Kishore Manghnani, Vice President of Green Technology
Products, Marvell. “This capability of having built-in wireless at the fixture
and driver level has the potential to dramatically increase the adoption of
this technology.”

“I am excited to be working with Marvell and Daintree to deliver the
industry’s first integrated wireless driver control at the fixture level,”
says Jason Huang, General Manager at Orama. “Lighting professionals can now
easily and cost-effectively include wireless control in their lighting

At LIGHTFAIR International (April 23-25, 2013), Daintree and Marvell will be
exhibiting an end-to-end LED ZigBee wireless lighting control solution that
includes Daintree’s ControlScope system and Orama’s OCC20W-Z LED driver built
with Marvell’s 88EM8801 LED driver and 88MZ100 wireless microcontroller.
Orama’s integrated wireless ZigBee LED driver will be commercially released at
the end of Q2-2013.

As part of the collaboration, Marvell and Orama have also joined Daintree’s
ControlScope Connected partner program. The ControlScope Connected program,
launched in January of 2011 and currently over twenty-five members strong, is
an alliance of manufacturers of lighting and other commercial building control
devices that can be part of a wireless control network using ZigBee, an open
standard communication protocol. These initiatives support Daintree’s ongoing
commitment to using and promoting open standards in building controls.
