ARM Processor In Power Management ICs

Dialog Semiconductor PLC announced that it has licensed the ARM® Cortex™-M0 processor for use in future generations of its power management ICs (PMICs).

This is the first time a standard 32-bit processor has been integrated into a mixed signal PMIC. The combination delivers superior digital processing capabilities, enabling Dialog system-level PMICs to provide extensive power control and precision battery management functions for portable devices. These PMICs are aimed at high-end multicore application processor-based platforms and deliver industry leading performance and efficiency, significantly increasing battery life.

Dialog PMICs enable manufacturers to quickly and easily bring power-optimized smartphones and tablets to market. The highly integrated and configurable single chip devices deliver extended battery life, a reduced bill of materials and increased system reliability.

The ARM Cortex-M0 processor is the smallest and lowest power ARM core available. Its exceptionally low power, small silicon area and memory footprint make it ideal for ultra low power MCU and mixed-signal applications.
