Dialog Semiconductor released DA9070 and DA9073, the first fully-integrated nanopower PMICs for IoT applications and is currently showcasing them at Electronica in Munich, Germany this week in Hall B5, Booth 348.
The new PMICs increase battery life by extracting < 1uA quiescent current for individual step-down regulators that power always-on components within the system and combine all key power management operations to decrease board area by 25 percent as opposed to discrete regulators.
With the DA9070, users can also create a battery fuel gauge solution, using the integrated voltage and current monitors.
“As consumer demands continue to push design boundaries, system designers are now faced with a complex challenge of extending battery life even further while adding new feature sets, all in a small form factor,” said Udo Kratz, Senior Vice President and General Manager of Mobile Systems Business Group at Dialog. “Dialog’s first fully-integrated nanopower PMICs build on our expertise in power management and IoT connectivity to arm engineers with a compact, powerful solution that solves these challenges while reducing overall form factor of the system for wearables and other IoT devices.”
