Dialog Semiconductor's DA9052 configurable power management IC has been adopted by Panasonic to maximise the battery life in two of the company's latest feature rich portable media players.
A result of Dialog's Processor Partner Programme, the design win further extends the company's relationship with Panasonic; with ICs for both power management and DECT digital cordless phone technology now being shipped to the consumer electronics giant. The digital cordless technology was added to Dialog's portfolio through the recent SiTel Semiconductor acquisition.
The DA9052 has been used to reduce power consumption and maximise the battery life in Panasonic's new portable media players. The 3.5-inch Android based SV-MV100 integrates WiFi with a 1Seg TV tuner and delivers 50-hours of music playback or 12-hours of WVGA video playback. The 7-inch WiFi and 1Seg TV tuner enabled SV-ME870 delivers 5.5-hours of video playback.
Dialog introduced its first configurable platform power management ICs in 2009, and has since announced numerous product and commercial milestones for this product family. The second generation DA9052 product gives designers even greater flexibility to reduce the power consumption, size and cost of smartphones, tablet PCs and portable multimedia devices. The device is capable of supporting all major families of application and mobile graphics processors and offers an unprecedented level of user-configurability.
