Dialog Semiconductor has announced a SmartPulse IP gateway reference design that enables SmartPulse and other DECT ULE home automation wireless sensor or actuator products to be connected to the web for remote management via smartphones, laptops and tablet PCs. The reference design integrates the SmartPulse SC14CVMDECT wireless basestation device and SC14452 VoIP application host processor with 32Mbit of flash memory, 16Mbyte SDRAM, an Ethernet Phy and Ethernet transformer. The reference board is supported by the company's software development environment, which includes web servers, TCP/IP stack and an SSH server. Two example sensor application boards automatically connect with the IP gateway reference design and enable the testing of web control systems. The company has also released development kits for its DECT ULE sensors (SC14WSMDATA, SC14WSMDECT) and basestation (SC14CVMDECT) devices. The kits create SmartPulse- based systems such as wireless controlled door locks, smoke alarms, light switches, home appliances and personal security and health-care systems. The low power, wireless sensor network devices are capable of running for up to 10years on a single AAA battery pack. They stream 232bit packet data in the 1870 to 1930MHz licensed DECT band and have a 300m range.
