Dialog raises level of power management integration to address needs of
future portable devices such as smartphones, e-books, netbooks
KIRCHHEIM/TECK and HSINCHU, TAIWAN, R.O.C. - 23 February 2010, Dialog
Semiconductor plc (FWB: DLG), a leading provider of highly integrated
innovative power management semiconductor solutions, today announced that
the company is working closely with foundry partner Taiwan Semiconductor
Manufacturing Company (TWSE: 2330, NYSE: TSM) on a bipolar-CMOS-DMOS (BCD)
technology specifically tailored to high-performance power management ICs
for portable devices.
The 0.25-micron high-voltage process node enables higher voltage
functionality to be integrated efficiently into single chip power
management ICs, increasing cost efficiencies and expanding the addressable
market for Dialog solutions.
The ability to integrate higher voltage and more efficient components is an
important feature of Dialogs next generation PMICs, and enables the
creation of smaller form factor devices with reduced power consumption. A
broad range of proprietary IP blocks, based on TSMC's 0.25um BCD process
nodes, have already been developed for incorporation into Dialog's next
generation PMICs, with the first devices already available. The designs
deliver the industry's leading power management performance for portable
'Close collaboration for innovative technology with our foundry partners is
key to Dialog's strategic business model, which accelerates the development
of the highest level of power management integration in the industry,' said
Dr Jalal Bagherli CEO of Dialog Semiconductor. 'Through our ongoing and
longstanding collaboration with TSMC, we are able to provide our customers
with validated low-power technologies to manage their power management
needs and meet aggressive time-to-market goals.'
'TSMC consistently delivers cutting edge technology platforms that include
integrated design collaterals,' said Jason Chen, Vice President of
Worldwide Sales and Marketing at TSMC. 'Dialog is one of the technology
leaders, bringing the best power management experiences possible to
portable users through extended battery lifetime in portable devices. We
are proud to be a strategic supplier to them.'
