Analog and mixed-signal supplier Semtech Corp. announced that its voice-over-RF reference design was selected by AVIDSEN, a European home security and control systems provider, to be a core element of its latest wireless entry phone system.

The voice-over-RF reference design is based on the XE1200 family of short-range, ultra low power wireless data communication transceivers from Semtech's new wireless and sensing products division, which was created from the June acquisition of XEMICS SA. Products such as these RF transceivers enhance Semtech's ability to service the broader industrial and medical end-markets.

Semtech's experience with voice-over-RF technology in real-world applications, combined with close collaboration between the Semtech and AVIDSEN engineering teams, resulted in a dramatic shortening of the development cycle, with the first product brought to market a full six months ahead of schedule.

The new system for homes and commercial properties provides a secure communication link between a battery-powered external unit fitted either to electric gates or doors. Key user benefits are no point-to-point wiring for easy installation, an automated setup procedure and continuous adjustment of operating conditions to maximize performance even in a high-interference environment.

Semtech offers a fully functional reference design based on Semtech codec, transceiver and host RISC controller running highly optimized voice-over-RF software.

Customization of the reference design to user requirements is available from Semtech's development team, which also offers assistance in the certification process. The complete solution utilizes extremely low power and is priced competitively.
