Microsemi and D-Link Develop an IoT Enabled Smart Alarm Detector

first_imgMicrosemi and D-Link have collaborated to develop D-Link’s mydlink Smart Alarm Detector (DCH-S165). This Wi-Fi based detector monitors and identifies the sounds of standard UL-certified smoke or carbon monoxide alarms using Microsemi’s ZL38062 sound classifier audio processor as the primary integrated circuit of the device.Leveraging the latest Internet of Things (IoT) technology, mydlink Smart Alarm Detector plugs into an electrical outlet to create an integrated home safety solution, without the cost and inconvenience of installing new smoke or carbon monoxide detectors. Utilizing Microsemi’s system-on-chip (SoC) audio processor inside the Smart Alarm Detector’s wall plug, the device detects the sound of an industry standard T3 smoke alarm or T4 carbon monoxide alarm and passes that detection flag to an app notifying the homeowner or alarm monitoring company. This enables homes without Wi-Fi enabled alarms to avoid undergoing expensive home rewiring and/or alarm replacement (of approximately $100 each) by simply plugging this module into the wall as a simple addition to the existing detector network.According to market research firm International Data Corporation (IDC), IoT technology and services spending will generate global revenues of $8.9 trillion by 2020, growing at a compound annual growth rate (CAGR) of approximately 8 percent. Using today’s IoT technology, the Smart Alarm Detector easily connects to an existing Wi-Fi network and works with any UL-certified smoke and carbon monoxide alarm. By placing the detector within 50 feet of these alarms, it accurately detects the temporal sounds from the smoke and carbon monoxide alarms via Microsemi’s audio processor and sends a mobile push notification if either of the alarms sound.The mydlink Smart Alarm Detector offers a state-of-the-art solution for the home automation market ideally suited to Microsemi’s AcuEdge technology, which when combined allows monitoring companies to create a smart home without the need for every alarm in the home to be smart. The company’s ZL38062 solution has proven reliable and cost-effective for today’s connected home market opportunities.Designed for world-class high definition voice applications, Microsemi’s ZL380 series of audio processors features the company’s Microsemi AcuEdge technology. This innovative technology includes a set of highly complex and integrated algorithms that allows the user to extract more information from the audio environment. It consists of license-free, royalty-free intelligent audio intellectual property (IP) algorithms. When combined with Microsemi’s highly integrated ZL380 series of audio processors, the solution accelerates customers’ time-to-market via validated reference design and MiTuner™ graphical user interface (GUI) software.Product AvailabilityMicrosemi’s ZL38062 which powers D-Link’s mydlink Smart Alarm Detector (DCH-S165) is available now.last_img read more

Sector D to the Prime Minister: Audience of the matches or…

first_imgCSKA fans sent an open letter to Prime Minister Boyko Borissov. In it, they share their demands that the public be allowed in the stadiums from the beginning of next season. The “red” fans are categorical in their request and threatened that if it is not fulfilled, they will have to look for an alternative place at the stadium to watch the matches of their favorite team.Here is what CSKA fans wrote:TOThe Prime Minister of the Republic of BulgariaMinistry of Youth and SportsPFLBFURHI SofiaLadies and Gentlemen,The beginning of the new season is approaching, and the old cases from the end of the previous one are still ahead of us. By order of the Ministry of Health, the audience in the stadiums in our country is banned at least until the end of this month. We would accept this if the policy of the responsible factors towards the coronavirus and the risk of its spread in recent months was clear and consistent. And if it was measured by the same yardstick for all of us.We can not fail to mention the again working nightclubs and restaurants, where in much narrower spaces than football stadiums people gather and categorically do not follow the necessary health prescriptions. We can’t help but mention the almost month-long protests, where thousands of people gather in confined spaces, this time in the open. What safer conditions for human health do the above examples of a football match and several thousand people in three outdoor sectors offer?In order not to be left with the impression that the motives for the lack of people in the stands are completely different, we call on the authorities to make the right decision and this nonsense to be corrected before the start of the championship on Friday. Otherwise, we will have to look for an alternative place to watch our matches, which may not be to the liking of all of you.No audience in the stadiums at least until the end of Augustlast_img read more

Orioles pitching prospect Harvey done for season with elbow injury

first_imgBALTIMORE — The Orioles received bad news about one of their top pitching prospects Wednesday as 19-year-old Hunter Harvey will be shut down for the rest of the season due to right elbow inflammation and a flexor mass strain.The 2013 first-round pick went 7-5 with a 3.18 ERA in 17 starts covering 87 2/3 innings this season, earning an invitation to the Futures Game during All-Star weekend in Minnesota earlier this month. The right-hander last pitched on June 25 when he allowed four earned runs and eight hits over five innings but had allowed three or fewer earned runs in each of his previous four starts.“Hunter saw our doctors [Tuesday], and he has an issue with his elbow, so he won’t be pitching anymore the rest of the season,” executive vice president of baseball operations Dan Duquette said Wednesday at Camden Yards. “I need to learn a little more about it. He’s had a good year, and he has distinguished himself as a top young pitcher. And he needs a rest period.”Duquette added that the injury is not believed to require surgery at this time. The structure of Harvey’s ulnar collateral ligament is supposedly sound, but fellow top pitching prospect Dylan Bundy was given the same initial diagnosis last year before ultimately needing Tommy John surgery when a period of rest did not produce the desired healing.Taken with the 22nd overall pick of last year’s draft, Harvey saw his stock soaring this season and was named the No. 13 prospect in all of baseball by ESPN’s Keith Law earlier this month. The North Carolina native is the son of former major league closer Bryan Harvey.last_img read more
