The DECT ULE Smart Home/Enterprise Hackathon is a perfect opportunity to get to know ULE and extend your network by meeting technical specialists from leading technology providers like DSP Group and Dialog Semiconductor. Deutsche Telekom have put their weight behind ULE and support this technology in their SmartHome platform. They are participating in the Hackathon and provide various types of ULE sensors; motion, contact, temperature etc.
Hackathon participants get access to two complete development environments for DECT ULE Smart Home applications from two leading manufactures: Dialog Semiconductor and DSP Group.
Dialog Semiconductor provide their SC14ULEDEVKT kit. This complete wireless system comes with a Fixed Part development board and two Portable Parts. The devices come pre-loaded with firmware and support Co-Located applications. You can easily load your own applications into the device’s internal memory. Uploads apps are detected and executed accordingly. This kit supports both voice and ULE data protocols. The Portable Parts connect to sensors.
All development tools and API’s are available for download and use during the Hackathon. In addition, Dialog Semiconductor gives you access to their SC14CVMDCT module which integrates a radio transceiver and a baseband in a single package. This kit is designed for hosted and embedded voice and data applications in the DECT 1.9Ghz frequency band. These modules use API commands to setup wireless links between two or more nodes.
DSP Group will make their DECT ULE development kits available. Their DECT ULE development tools also include a hub and node platform. The DSPG ULE USB Dongle plugs into a pc, notebook or R-pi system, basically any device with a USB port. Once connected and powered up, the dongle functions as the Hub of a ULE star network and connects to a variety of DECT Voice, ULE Data or mixed mode Data/Voice devices. User application software runs locally on the Hub and DSP Group provides reference code that can be adapted to run on the appropriate operating system.
Their ULE Shield board connects to the familiar 3.3V Arduino Development Platform with an R3 interface. The combined ULE Shield and Arduino Development Platform creates a sensor/node device which connects DECT-ULE Hub in packet-mode (data). User applications run on the Arduino device and the communicates with the ULE via an UART of SPI interface.
To complement these two powerful development environments, Hackathon participants will also have access to a range of ULE compatible sensors, switches and controls.
