Dialog Semiconductor Delivers Critical System Power Management for Tablets Based on the Next Generation Intel(R) Atom(TM) Processors
KIRCHHEIM/TECK, Germany --(Business Wire)--
Semiconductor plc (FWB: DLG),
a provider of highly integrated power management, audio and short range
wireless technologies, announced today that Intel
Corporation and Dialog have expanded their collaboration for
the development of a single-chip power management IC (PMIC).
Together with the next generation Intel (News - Alert)(R) Atom(TM) processor, codename
'Bay Trail', this PMIC delivers outstanding battery life for tablet
designs, a critical factor in consumer product choice. Dialog's DA6021
PMIC was optimised to be a system power management device on Intel's
reference design vehicle: an 'open bench top' customer reference
board/kit for test, measurement and software development as well as an
enclosed form-factor reference design that requires minimal additional
hardware to complete the rapid development of tablet computers.
Dr Jalal Bagherli, CEO of Dialog, commented, 'The tablet marke
represents an exciting growth opportunity and we're delighted to be
working with Intel in delivering a vital component for the
energy-friendly next generation Intel Atom platform. The performance and
energy-efficiency gains that we expect Intel's next generation processor
will bring to tablets are complemented perfectly by the system-level
power management capabilities of our PMIC, which has been designed to
operate with both the processor and its peripherals.
'Battery life is one of the major factors that determine consumer choice
in this product category and the goal of our close collaboration with
Intel has been to make the resulting products best-in-class in this
respect,' concluded Bagherli.
'We are pleased to work with Dialog to enable their power management
solution for Intel's Bay Trail platform,' said Steve Smith, Intel VP and
director of Tablet Platform Development. 'Dialog's expertise in highly
integrated, mixed signal analog components provides a valuable
contribution, delivering competitive, energy-efficient next generation
Atom-based tablets to the market.'
