DSP Group (www.dspg.com) announced silicon design wins with Gigaset and Sagemcom DECT phones, including CAT-iq 2.0 certification for the Sagemcom phone.
The Gigaset SL901/SL901A and DX800A incorporate DSP Group’s XciteR ARM-based silicon running Linux and a “strong” DSP processor, according to the company. XciteR is also incorporated into Gigaset’s DX600A, DL500A, and DECT IP C610/C610A IP. The release says the XciteR silicon was “designed in collaboration with Gigaset.”
At the CAT-iq Developer’s forum, DSP announced the DECT Forum CAT-iq 2.0 for the Sagecom D46W handset. The D46W uses DSP Group’s XceedR family of chipsets and is (currently) one of the few products with CAT-iq 2.0 certification.
CAT-iq 2.0 enables HD voice (wideband voice) via G.722 and supports a fully suite of telephony functions in a DECT cordless environment, including multi-line telephony, three-party conferencing, call transfer, phonebook synchronization, and easy device pairing. France Telecom and Cable Labs are both solidly behind CAT-iq 2.0 and Deutsche Telekom has begun deploying the technology for consumer use in Europe.
The Sagemcom’s D46W handset provides wideband HD voice, including a hands-free mode, along with high-quality polyphonic ringers and caller identification.
