|AVIDSEN Selects Semtech Voice-over-RF Chip for New Wireless Entry
Camarillo, California - Semtech Corp. announced that its Voice-over-RF
reference design was selected by AVIDSEN, a European leader in home security and control systems, 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 experienced
development team, which also offers assistance in the certification process. The complete solution utilizes
extremely low power and is priced competitively.
“This easy to use and install phone entry system
application takes full advantage of the advanced functionality of the Semtech chip-set, such as a wireless UART,
high RF link budget, efficient speech-compression scheme and highly-efficient power management,” said Alain Dantec,
Vice-President of the Wireless and Sensing Products group. “Semtech is widely considered as the only company capable
of offering such a complete and proven solution.”
“AVIDSEN has grown rapidly thanks to the fact
that it is successful in leveraging its research and delivery team to get new products to market as customers need
them,” said Fabrice Artault, Technical Manager of AVIDSEN. “We selected Semtech both because they had superior and
proven technology and because one of its distributors, Pyrecap, provided the development assistance we needed to
meet our deadline on this new product.”
