The DA9053 becomes Dialog’s flagship system level PMIC for high-end multicore-based applications and supports the ARM Cortex family whilst the DA9021 addresses lower power cost-sensitive applications.     

The DA9053 is an advanced high performance PMIC that provides multi-processor core power and claims to deliver unprecedented power-up flexibility with energy efficiency. The device combines a powerful 1.8 A rated dual-input DC/USB power path router with a switching battery charger and includes support for multiple external memory configurations. The DA9053 is ideally suited for powering the latest generation of demanding portable media and wireless computing applications, such as tablet PCs.     

The DA9021 delivers the same highly configurable engine to optimise power-up sequencing and has been retargeted to be suitable for lower power single processor core portable consumer markets, such as e-readers and DAB receivers, to help drive down the design costs. It includes a 1.3 A single input USB charger and its internal regulators deliver approximately half the total current relative to DA9053.     

The DA9053 is supplied in a 169 ball VFBGA 7 x 7 mm package with 0.5 mm pitch or VFBGA 11x11mm package with 0.8mm pitch and is available in both consumer and automotive grades. The DA9021 is supplied in a 64 ball 4 x 4 mm wafer-level package with 0.5 mm pitch. Samples of both the DA9053 and the DA9021 are available immediately.     

Companies supported by Dialog’s Processor Partner Programme include Freescale, Marvell, Renesas (NEC) and Samsung. For example, the DA9053 PMIC features on Freescale’s i.Mx53 multimedia reference platform and will be demonstrated at the Freescale Technology Forum in San Antonio, 20-23 June 2011.
