Typical Smartphone Application


Dialog provides a range of optimised power management, audio codec and audio amplifier ICs that meet the ever increasing demands of today’s smartphone platforms.

System PMIC. Dialog’s system PMIC’s manage energy in and out of the battery with a combination of switching-linear regulators and internal power switches. When combined with Dialog’s a high performance audio/voice codec all the power management and audio needs of a smartphone can be met with a single low cost device.

Application processor.  Dialog’s high power output drives, integrated DCDC step down with DVS and true autonomous mode control ensures maximum processor efficiency. Multiple audio streams from different system peripherals may be mixed in the audio codec.

Digital baseband. Dialog’s integrated DCDC step down converters offer improved power efficiency with auto-standby mode control. Voice codec interfaces directly to microphone earpiece and handsfree/ringer speaker and meets all 2.4, 3.5 and 4G standards.

Multiband RF transceiver. Dialog has expertise in high PSRR linear regulators with Smartmirror™ quiescent current control to help minimise noise coupling into sensitive radio circuits. Low power radio AFE’s simplify interfacing to 3G/4G digital basebands.

Camera module. Dialog’s IP portfolio includes negative voltage bias generators for CCD modules and Flash LED drivers.

Wireless peripherals and memory. Dialog’s high level of functional integration with up to thirty independent programmable supply domains provides the flexibility needed to support combinations of peripherals with minimal effort. This approach delivers time-to-market advantages for platform-based designs.

FM. Dialog’s integrated audio coded enables external audio & voice sources to be mixed in the analog and/or digital domains. The codecs have been optimised to suppress radio inference coupling into the audio/voice channels.

Crystal. Dependent on the choice of baseband/ applications processor, the RTC and system clocks may optionally be provided by a Dialog system PMIC for low power consumption and reduced jitter.


Typical Tablet PC Application



The new generation of tablet PC’s are primarily based on the same platforms used in smartphones. This has enabled Dialog to quickly migrate our smartphone power management and audio solutions to highly optimised tablet PC product applications.

High power output integrated DCDC step down with DVS and true autonomous mode control ensures maximum efficiency for even the most demand multicore Table PC application processors.

System PMIC. Dialog’s system PMIC’s manage energy in and out of the battery with a combination of switching-linear regulators and internal power switches. When combined with Dialog’s a high performance audio/voice codec all the power management and audio needs of a Smartphone can be met with a single low cost device.

Typical Feature Phone Application


Feature phones differ from smartphones in that they used an all-in-one communications baseband and application processor.

System PMIC. Dialog’s system PMIC’s manage energy in and out of the battery with a combination of switching-linear regulators and internal power switches. When combined with Dialog’s a high performance audio/voice codec all the power management and audio needs of a Smartphone can be met with a single low cost device.

Application processor. Dialog’s integrated DCDC step-down converters offer improved power efficiency with auto-standby mode control. Baseband-compliant voice codec interfaces directly to microphones, earpiece and handsfree/ringer speaker whilst the audio codec combines with the application processor to enhanced multimedia delivery.

Multiband RF transceiver. Dialog has expertise in high PSRR linear regulators with Smartmirror quiescent current control to help minimise noise coupling into sensitive radio circuits. Low power radio AFE’s simplify interfacing to 3G/4G Digital Basebands.

Typical media player application


Dedicated media players are designed using a single applications processor IC driving larger portable screens and tend to exclude cellular communication capability.

System PMIC. Dialog’s system PMIC’s manage energy in and out of the battery with a combination of switching-linear regulators and internal power switches. Integrating system functions such as USB powerpath management enables all necessary mixed signal functions for a Portable Media Device to be contained within a single package.

Application processor. High power output drives, integrated DCDC step down with DVS and true autonomous mode control ensures maximum processor efficiency. Multiple audio streams from different system peripherals may be mixed in the audio codec.
