of compact digital recorders. Sony has already launched this high end IC
recorder product series.
'Validation of our new audio technology through these design wins at Sony,
a premier globally recognised consumer brand, represents an important
milestone for Dialog,' commented Udo Kratz, vice president and general
manager for audio and power management at Dialog: 'The DA7211 delivers the
ultimate mix of high performance audio with ultra low power consumption

newseries of IC Recorders. With our first audio products only released in
the last 12 months, we are proud of this early success with Sony,'
Sony's latest IC recorders incorporate Sony's proprietary and advanced
S-Mic recording technology with dual A/D converters included for wider
dynamic range and improved signal to noise ratio (SNR).
The DA7211 comes with a simple to use interface and general purpose filter,
which enables manufacturers to optimise the output signal for small on
board speakers and enclosures, delivering even complex 3D spatial effects.
The 3x3mm chip has the lowest quiescent power consumption in its class.
