Building Automation

Comfortable, safe, productive

Commercial buildings encompass far more than offices and warehouses, including facilities as diverse as medical centers, restaurants, factories, banks, movie studios, and wineries. While their functions and scale differ, all share the need to manage energy and other utilities to provide efficiency, comfort, safety, and cost savings. Worldwide, more than 300,000 commercial buildings rely on solutions from Dialog to keep occupants comfortable, safe, and productive—while reducing energy use and carbon footprint.

Communications ICs

Our communications ICs are designed to enable reliable and easy-to-integrate communication interfaces for industrial devices and networks.

Systems and Software

Our open-standard IoT platform and tools connect, monitor and control devices in commercial and industrial deployments. The SmartServer IoT edge server enables companies to drive intelligent and automated decisions in the IIoT through its revolutionary open and extensible architecture by embracing legacy devices and protocols, extending them with emerging IoT protocols and applications, and enhancing them with insights from cloud and AI systems. The SmartServer IoT supports multiple protocols and applications, enabling the convergence of diverse systems such as security, HVAC, lighting, and fire detection onto a single control networking platform. Systems that incorporate our technology have achieved significantly reduced energy consumption, lower CapEx and OpEx, greater safety and security, reduced maintenance time and expense, and more accurate control of business-critical conditions. All of this ultimately results in increased tenant satisfaction. Read more about our systems and software solutions for building automation applications:

Custom ASICs

Our many years of experience in implementing full-custom system-on-chip (SoC) designs helps our customers achieve their product vision. We optimize at both the block and system level, so our chips deliver ultra-low total system power consumption and area, while also delivering high performance and as much as 80% reduction in a customer’s bill of materials. Our SmartEdge platform can be customized for your specific requirements, providing sensing, communication and control functionality to make your building systems more capable and efficient. Our integrated approach makes reverse engineering impractical, thereby protecting your intellectual property.
