Dialog Semiconductor plc (FWB: DLG), a provider of highly integrated power management, audio and short range wireless technologies, today announced that Avantec Manufacturing Ltd has selected its ultra low power Green VoIP chipset for two new phones for the Asian hotel resort and serviced apartment markets. Avantec is using Dialog's SC14461 processor and Rhea(TM) software in its Hotel VoIP PH656 and Trimline VoIP PH658 corded phones.
Dialog's technology reduces the power usage of a VoIP phone by half, saving up to 2 Watts per device over comparable solutions on the market. Its multicore architecture features three processors that run on lower clock frequencies and are activated according to actual usage needs. One 16-bit CompactRISC(TM) processor is used to manage the VoIP software, networking stack and user interface and two programmable Digital Signal Processors (DSPs) to handle the real-time audio. The chipset also includes a Class D amplifier to support hands-free speakers on the phones.
Louis Y. Lei, Product Manager at Avantec Manufacturing Ltd, commented, 'Dialog's Green VoIP processors have the lowest power consumption figures in the industry as well as providing superb audio quality, which we believe will bring significant benefits our hospitality customers throughout Asia. Dialog's easy-to-use Rhea software, tools and comprehensive support have enabled us to accelerate the availability of our new VoIP phones.'
Using the G.722 High Definition (HD) wideband voice standard, Dialog's DSPs compress the audio signals and extend their frequency range to 16kHz to enhance speech quality and reduce bandwidth usage. Combined with advanced acoustic echo cancellation software algorithms, this helps to deliver crystal clear conversations.
Sean McGrath, Vice President of the Connectivity, Automotive and Industrial business group at Dialog Semiconductor, commented, 'Dialog's Green VoIP technology is very energy-efficient in comparison to other solutions on the market, enabling Avantec's hospitality customers to save money by running voice and data communications over one network and ensure the sound quality of the calls is exceptionally high. It's a market that has significant potential for growth as standard hotel PBXs provide limited features and are very expensive to purchase and maintain.'
