Expanded collaboration for automotive platforms

19-08-2020 | Dialog Semiconductor | Automotive Technologies

Dialog Semiconductor is expanding its collaboration with Renesas Electronics Corporation by introducing its PMIC solutions for the R-Car M3 and R-Car E3 automotive computing platforms.

Building on the collaboration between the two companies on the Renesas’ R-Car Gen 2 and R-Car H3 platforms, the power solutions for the R-Car M3 and R-Car E3 platform incorporate the DA9063-A system PMIC and the DA9224-A sub PMIC. Each device is specifically configured to satisfy the specific power rail demands including voltage levels, peak currents and power sequencing for producing an 'exact fit' power solution.

Dialog’s highly integrated PMICs are remarkably efficient, producing the smallest form factor at a low BoM cost while alleviating thermal design complexity, a critical factor in the adverse temperature conditions of automotive systems.

“The expanded collaboration between Dialog and Renesas enables the leading automotive Tier-1 suppliers to deliver differentiated, reliable, high-performance and cost-effective electronic systems based on the industry-leading R-Car platforms,” said Tom Sandoval, senior vice president, Automotive Business Segment, Dialog Semiconductor. “As processing power demands and platform-specific requirements continue to increase across automotive systems, our collaboration with Renesas delivers significant benefits to our joint customers.”

The unique partitioning of system-level power delivery into highly configurable system PMICs and sub-PMICs facilitates the scalability and flexibility of Dialog’s power management solutions. A broad variety of SoC system power specifications can be readily met utilising the same PMIC devices, enabling designers to optimise their power demands throughout the design process. This gives the most energy-efficient, high-performance product for the specific end application.

“Automotive electronics designers can easily make power configuration and sequencing changes to meet their SoC system with Dialog’s flexible, scalable power solutions. Our joint work with Renesas enables SoC solutions with best-in-class power efficiency,” Sandoval added.

All devices are offered as full AEC-Q100 Grade 2 qualified devices.
