Industrial applications


Realized through the strategic acquisition of Creative Chips GmbH in 2019, Dialog immediately established itself as a key supplier of mixed-signal custom ASICs into the fast-growing Industrial Internet of Things (IIoT) market. We also provide a growing range of standard industrial products starting with our IO-Link Master and Device ICs.

Industrial Edge Computing

Our open-standard networking platforms and tools connect monitor and control devices in commercial and industrial IoT deployments. The new SmartServer IoT edge server platform enables companies to drive intelligent and automated decisions in the IIoT through its revolutionary open, extensible architecture that allows solutions to “Embrace” legacy devices and protocols, “Extend” with emerging IoT protocols and applications, and “Enhance” with insights from cloud and AI systems.

Custom ASICs & IP

Dialog (through its acquisition of Adesto) has many years’ experience in implementing full-custom industrial system-on-chip (SoC) designs, achieving as much as 80% bill of materials reductions for our customers. What’s more, because we optimize both at block and system level, our chips deliver the lowest total system power consumption and area, while delivering the best performance. Our integrated approach makes reverse engineering exceptionally impractical, thereby protecting your intellectual property.

Application-Specific Memories

Our non-volatile memory (NVM) devices are designed with specific features and embedded intelligence to dramatically reduce a system’s overall energy consumption and extend its battery life, while delivering higher performance, greater reliability, enhanced security, and lower system cost.

Communications Products

Our communications ICs are designed to enable reliable and easy communications for industrial devices and networks. Our highly programmable Power Line Communications (PLC) ICs enable OEMs to quickly develop robust and innovative solutions that meet the unique requirements of automotive applications, such as industrial-strength reliability and scalability.

For decades, our LonWorks platform has been powering train braking systems, and is the basis of several standards in in-train control. Our OFDM-class PLC modems provide unprecedented level of flexibility and noise immunity, and support communication standards for in-truck sensor communication, such as PLC4TRUCKS and G3-PLC, as well as uniquely robust proprietary modes used in battery chargers and battery management systems.

Industrial ASICs

Industrial automation or so-called Industry 4.0 is driving some of the most complex networking and electronic system solutions in the world today. In many case, optimized bespoke solutions are the only way to achieving ultimate performance in such a demanding environment. Dialog works closely with customers to help realize their exact product requirements with a particular focus on Industrial IoT applications. The need for integrated sensors, high sensitivity interfaces, low power consumption, high voltage support, high-speed data processing with fully automated, programable real-time online control, are just some of the major challenges facing complex mixed-signal IC design. Dialog provides customers with full custom ASIC design and supply services for industrial applications that meet the highest functional safety and reliability requirements.
