Leading AC/DC power conversion and battery management provider, Dialog Semiconductor, has reportedly announced the launch of its DA913X-A product line. The newly rolled out product family is comprised of automotive-grade, high-current, and highly efficient step-down DC-DC (Buck) converters.
According to Tom Sandoval, Dialog Semiconductor’s SVP of GM Automotive Business Segment, the company is consistent to introduce new PMIC solutions catering to the surging power and thermal efficiency needs of in-cabin, high-performance automotive electronics systems. He has further stated that developers of automotive systems can depend on Dialog for highly cost-efficient, leading, and small-form factor power solutions.
For the uninitiated, Dialog Semiconductor is specialized in the supply of custom and standard integrated circuits (ICs) that power the Industry 4.0 and Internet of Things applications. The company’s proven track record impels the next generation of today’s devices via effective provision of Wi-Fi, Bluetooth(R) low energy, Battery Management, Configurable Mixed-signal ICs, and Flash memory, reducing charge times, improving power efficiency, and enhancing performance and productivity.
As per sources, the DA913X-A product line consists of three devices comprising single- or dual-output DC-DC converters. Of these, the DA9130-A functions as a single-channel and dual phase DC-DC converter, delivering an output current of up to 10 A. Both, the DA9131-A and the DA9132-A, integrate two single-phase DC-DC converters. Each of the converters in DA9131-A deliver an output current of up to 5A while the ones in DA9132-A deliver an output current of up to 3A.
All the three devices are suitable for a broad range of low-voltage systems and come with an input voltage range of 2.5 V to 5.5 V and an output voltage range of 0.3V to 1.9V, cite sources. In addition, the output voltages over 1.9V are backed by an external resistor divider. The devices function at efficiency levels of over 90 per cent, decreasing the thermal design challenges that emerge while powering high-current rails in a wide array of automotive systems, including telemetry, infotainment, navigation, and Advanced Driver Assistance Systems (ADAC).
