Power management and audio come together
A combined power management and audio IC is designed especially to support the latest generation of application processors in emerging high growth applications.
Dialog Semiconductor has launched a combined power management and audio IC designed especially to support the latest generation of application processors in emerging high growth applications such as smartphones, portable multimedia devices (PMP), PDAs and personal navigators The company's new DA9034 power management and audio controller IC addresses the growing need to merge more functions so that battery life can be prolonged and smaller and thinner handheld solutions can be realised
The chip integrates over 50 different main functions on chip, includes a full high quality 24bit hi-fi stereo subsystem, features unique high current rating 1400mA buck convertor and includes the first linear regulators to feature dynamic voltage management (DVM).
The DA9034 is a very sophisticated system-on-a-chip, significantly reducing the number of ICs required and reducing PCB area by more than half.
It is the most highly integrated power and audio controller to support applications processors in 90nm technologies and below.
