Chipset company DSP Group and Internet of Things specialist Yoga Systems have unveiled an ultra low energy (ULE) over-the-top (OTT) reference design for IoT services.

Based on the ULE standard, the technology combines DSP’s system-on-a-chip and firmware with Yoga’s cloud-based IoT management and rules engine.

The technology would offer a range of up to 70 meters indoors using an interference-free radiofrequency band, the companies claim.

Yoga (Tallinn, Estonia) has developed a smart home platform that is already capable of connecting wired and wireless security detectors, cameras, thermostats, smart plugs, lights, entertainments systems, locks and other devices.

“DSP Group [Los Altos, CA, USA] has an excellent portfolio of ULE and DECT-based solutions, which are highly compatible with our own solutions,” said Priit Vimberg, Yoga’s founder and chief executive. “We take security seriously, and ULE guarantees the benefits of AES-128 encryption.”

“DSP Group’s ULE solutions will help us deliver end-to-end security for IoT and smart homes in the wireless DIY space.” he added.

DSP says that solutions based on its DVF99 family will address all IoT OTT requirements, using ULE an DECT technologies in areas beyond pure home management and supporting intelligent voice and visual capabilities.

“We’re pleased to have the opportunity of leveraging Yoga’s expertise and robust IoT management system to jointly shape the future of IoT,” said Raz Kivelevich-Carmi, the vice president of marketing and business development at DSP.

The companies are currently demonstrating their technology at the European Utility Week show being held in Amsterdam.
