London, UK, Seoul, South Korea, September 16, 2020 – Leading battery and power management, Wi-Fi, Bluetooth Low Energy (BLE), industrial IC supplier Dialog semiconductor (Deutsche Börse: DLG) and Telechips, a leading automotive system-on-chip (SoC) supplier for in-vehicle infotainment (IVI) and smart cockpit solutions, jointly announced today that Dialog will be Telechips’ preferred power management partner for its latest Dolphin+QD (TCC8059) , Dolphin 3E (TCC8053) / Dolphin 3M (TCC8050) and Dolphin 3H (TCC8060) platforms provide power management solutions. This further collaboration builds on the companies’ previous collaboration on the Telechips Dolphin+ automotive platform, targeting the next generation of functionally safe smart in-vehicle infotainment systems, instrumentation, head-up Display systems and integrated cockpit Electronic control units (ECUs).
Dialog’s “perfectly matched” power solution consists of the DA9062-A system main PMIC and the recently introduced DA9130-A and DA9131-A sub PMICs. These highly integrated devices are AEC-Q100 Grade 2 qualified and provide a total current capability of 21.5A, enabling optimum performance for the latest Telechips platforms. In addition, the Dolphin 3 employs Dynamic Voltage Scaling (DVS) to reduce SoC power loss and heat dissipation. Dialog’s power solutions easily support this feature, along with other power-saving features such as programmable sleep modes.
Tom Sandoval, senior vice president and general manager of the Automotive Business Unit at Dialog Semiconductor, said: “As automotive suppliers continue to demand cost-effective, high-performance, feature-rich SoC platforms, our further collaboration with Telechips will provide automotive suppliers Great advantage. Dialog’s PMIC solution is uniquely positioned to provide the flexibility, scalability and automotive-grade reliability that Telechips’ customers demand.”
The biggest advantage of the new Dolphin series is the provision of a cockpit electronics system that does not require hardware virtualization, allowing customers to use two operating systems based on the Cortex®-A72 and Cortex®-A53 CPUs simultaneously without the use of hardware virtualization. Dolphin 3 not only has high GPU benchmark performance, but also has excellent VPU.Automotive customers can use DP1.4, Open LDI, MIPI-CSI2 to experience a rich and vivid graphical user interface, and can realize image display on multiple screens and multiple cameras
Image processing of the camera. Additionally, Telechips Dolphin 3 solutions can run automotive-grade operating systems such as Android™, Linux®, QNX™ and Green Hills®. The Dolphin family of platforms also meets full EVITA, Chinese encryption, AEC-Q100 and ASIL B functional safety requirements.
Steve Wahl, CEO of Telechips, said: “Our customers are demanding solutions ranging from entry-level to high-end series, and we are fortunate to be supported by Dialog’s flexible and scalable power solutions. Telechips provides a differentiated connected car platform, Combined with Dialog’s PMIC family, it can support multiple cost and performance levels.”
The DA9062-A system main PMIC, DA9130-A sub-PMIC and DA9131-A sub-PMIC offer significant scalability and flexibility benefits while distributing heat dissipation in high temperature environments. A built-in configurable engine helps system designers easily address power sequencing, thermal and system control challenges. An intuitive GUI (Smart Canvas) simplifies the customization process for a “perfect match” power management solution. Such highly optimized, cost-effective power management solutions enable the most competitive and differentiated system designs.
These system main PMIC and sub-PMIC devices are fully AEC-Q100 Grade 2 qualified.
Dialog’s PMIC solutions are now available in Telechips chipsets.
