SmartPulseT IP gateway reference design supports wireless sensor networks
The reference design integrates Dialog’s SmartPulse SC14CVMDECT wireless base station device and SC14452 VoIP application host processor with 32 Mb of flash memory, 16 MB SDRAM, an Ethernet Phy and Ethernet transformer.
Measuring 60×100 mm the reference board is supported by Dialog’s Rhea µClinux software development environment, which includes web servers, TCP/IP stack and an SSH server. Included with the reference design are two example sensor application boards; these automatically connect with the IP gateway reference design and enable the testing of web control systems for SmartPulse enabled products.
To further simplify the design process for new wireless sensor network systems Dialog has also announced development kits for the complete 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.
Launched in September Dialog’s low power wireless sensor network devices are capable of running for up to 10 years on a single AAA battery pack; are certified for worldwide use; stream 232 bit packet data in the 1870-1930 MHz licensed DECT band; have a 300 m range; are self-configuring and require no network planning.
Dialog is a co-founder of the DECT ULE standard and the SC14WSMDATA, SC14WSMDECT and SC14CVMDECT are the industry’s first commercially available DECT ULE devices, enabling the creation of home automation, security and energy metering devices that automatically configure with the base station, removing the need for network planning.
Dialog is demonstrating its SmartPulse development kits and reference designs at the Smart Homes exhibition and conference, Amsterdam until 6 October 2011.
