Kirchheim/Teck, Germany, 27 August - Dialog Semiconductor Plc (FWB:DLG)
today announced it collaborated with Harman Becker, the Harman
International Automotive Division, in the development of the DA6001 power
management IC as a companion device for the Intel(R) Atom(TM) processor.
The DA6001 is to be used in the Harman International Automotive Division's
in-vehicle infotainment command centres, with Dialog having already shipped
the first engineering samples to the company. The companies have also
recently signed an agreement to continue the collaboration for a successor
device supporting Intel's forthcoming next generation Atom processor.
The DA6001 is the only available integrated power management and clock
supply IC for the Intel Atom processor. It is targeted at embedded
applications and meets the automotive industry's extended temperature and
reliability standards. The integrated solution from Dialog allows a
substantial reduction in the number of active and passive system components
required in a design.
'Harman systems, using the Dialog technology, will deliver energy efficient
scalable solutions with rich multimedia features to our global automotive
customers; converging home and in vehicle entertainment,' commented Marek
Neumann, Vice President Advanced Engineering at Harman International
'Engaging closely with Dialog for this development, especially with their
team's deep understanding of the Atom processor, was a welcome option for
us in easing the design complexity of our system,' added Neumann.
Jalal Bagherli, CEO at Dialog commented, 'This collaboration with Harman
Becker, an automotive infotainment market leader, is proving to be key for
Dialog. It has provided an excellent product offering to fill the gap in
the embedded market with Intel. It has also further cemented our role in
satisfying the demanding needs of the automotive industry with a uniquely
integrated system power and clock supply solution.'
Samples of the DA6001 and development board are now available, with volume
production and automotive qualified devices available in the second half of
2009. Further technical information is available at:
