Dialog Semiconductor plc has released the SmartPulse IP gateway reference design. It enables SmartPulse and other DECT ULE home automation wireless sensor/actuator products to be connected to the Internet for remote management via smartphones, laptops and tablets.

The reference design integrates Dialog's SmartPulse SC14CVMDECT wireless base station device and SC14452 VoIP application host processor with 32Mb of flash memory, 16MB SDRAM, Ethernet PHY and Ethernet transformer.

Measuring 60 x 100mm, the reference board is supported by Dialog's Rhea?Clinux software development environment that includes web servers, TCP/IP stack and SSH server. Included are two sample sensor application boards. These automatically connect with the IP gateway reference design and enable the testing of web control systems for SmartPulse enabled products.

Dialog has also announced development kits for the family of SmartPulse DECT ULE sensors (SC14WSMDATA, SC14WSMDECT) and base station (SC14CVMDECT) devices. These kits include both devices and software, providing a simple way to create SmartPulse-based systems such as wireless controlled door locks, smoke alarms, light switches, home appliances and personal security and health care systems.

According to the company, the low power wireless sensor network devices are capable of running for up to 10 years on a single AAA battery pack. They are certified for worldwide use, stream 232bit packet data in the 1870-1930MHz licensed DECT band, have 300m range, and are self-configuring and require no network planning.
