Dialog Semiconductor's DA6011 adopted by congatec for Qseven embedded PC
Business card sized Qseven platform, based on Intel(R) Atom(TM) processor
E6xx series and Dialog's companion IC, demonstrated at Intel Developer
Kirchheim/Teck, Germany and IDF, San Francisco, 14th September 2010 -
Dialog Semiconductor plc (FWB: DLG), a leading provider of highly
integrated innovative power management semiconductor solutions, has
announced that its DA6011, a companion IC for the Intel(R) Atom(TM)
processor E6xx series, is being used in congatec's Qseven embedded PC
conga-QA6 for clocking and
Dialog's DA6011 with integrated power management and clock driver
functionality is a single chip companion IC for the Intel Atom processor
E6xx series, (formerly codenamed Tunnel Creek). The DA6011 was designed in
conjunction with Dialog's Processor Partner Programme to maximise the
efficiency by precisely regulating power and providing the clock source to
the core components of the system based on the Intel Atom processor E6xx
series- the CPU, flash memory, RAM and I/O hubs.
Both the Intel Atom processor E6xx series and the DA6011 were announced
today at IDF - see www.diasemi.com/da6011pr.
At just 70x70mm the Qseven is amongst the world's smallest embedded PCs and
has a footprint smaller than a typical business card. It is a low cost, low
power board that only requires a user interface and battery, enabling new
classes of embedded computing products that have small form factor and long
Jürgen Friedel, vice president and general manager of Dialog's automotive
and industrial business unit said, 'The Qseven enables incredibly small PCs
to be created, and to minimize battery size, we must maximise power
efficiency. We've worked closely with both congatec and Intel to ensure the
DA6011 precisely regulates power for those components at the heart of the
Gerhard Edi, CEO of congatec said, 'Every square millimetre of savings on
the Qseven counts. A single chip power management solution was essential,
allowing us to further shrink BOM, cost and power consumption to the lowest
possible levels without compromise.'
