AUSTIN, Texas--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Sept. 19, 2007--Silicon Laboratories Inc. (Nasdaq:SLAB), a leader in high-performance, analog-intensive, mixed-signal ICs, today announced its support for ONE-NET™, an open design standard for low-power wireless applications for residential and small business control. All of Silicon Laboratories' high-performance, mixed-signal microcontrollers (MCUs) now support this open standard for wireless control.

The ONE-NET wireless standard is specifically designed to cost effectively combine low power and a high level of security in a comprehensive design specification distributed royalty-free, accelerating the availability and use of wireless connectivity in a variety of applications. Silicon Labs' 8-bit mixed-signal MCUs integrate world-class analog with a high-speed pipelined 8051 CPU in each device and are ideally suited for low-power wireless applications. Combining high-precision analog peripherals, with a low-current consumption, high-throughput (up to 100 MIPS) 8051 CPU and up to 128 kB of on-chip Flash memory, these devices provide the optimal platform for a wide range of wireless automation, industrial, medical and residential monitoring and control applications. Low cost, easy-to-use development kits are available for all Silicon Labs MCUs to help speed system development.

"The ONE-NET community is pleased to have Silicon Labs support and welcome them to the ONE-NET open source community for wireless control," said James Martin, Director for the ONE-NET organization. "The Silicon Labs product portfolio of high-performance MCUs is excellent for ONE-NET-based designs, as it integrates cost-efficient 8-bit architecture with the high performance needed to support encoding and encryption functions that are integral to our protocol."
