712370

Renesas Electronics Corporation and Dialog Semiconductor Plc (Dialog) have officially joined forces, and as an immediate benefit to customers, Renesas announced 39 new Winning Combinations. These expert designs showcase both Renesas’ and Dialog’s complementary, and now combined, product portfolios of Embedded Processing, Analog, Power, and Connectivity.

Sailesh Chittipeddi, Executive Vice President & General Manager of the IoT and Infrastructure Business Unit said that the addition of Dialog to the Renesas portfolio presents a tremendous opportunity to drive growth and cross sales in their core segments of Power Management, Analog-Mixed Signal, Connectivity, Industrial and Standard Products. Additionally, Dialog’s focus on low-power technologies will allow Renesas to further enhance sustainability across their product portfolio.

Renesas’ Winning Combinations are engineering-vetted designs and allow customers to take advantage of an elevated platform for their design ideas, accelerating their product development cycle and lowering their overall risk in bringing designs to market.

Chris Allexandre, Senior Vice President & Head of Sales and Corporate Digital Marketing of the IoT and Infrastructure Business Unit said that the 39 Winning Combinations represent just the beginning. He also said that as they drive collaboration among the teams, their customers should start seeing the benefits of the combined portfolio in terms of getting their own solutions to market faster.

To highlight the best of both Renesas’ and Dialog’s portfolios, Renesas is showcasing its key IoT and Industrial Winning Combinations.

Renesas’ recently-announced Quick Connect IoT, an IoT system design platform that significantly eases the prototyping of IoT systems to help users dramatically reduce time-to-market. The multi-board design platform eliminates widespread compatibility issues found in hardware and software, enabling designers to quickly and easily connect a wide range of sensors to MCU development boards. Combined with Dialog’s ultra-low power Bluetooth Low Energy (LE) (DA14531) and Wi-Fi (DA16200) SOCs, the new Pmod 6A board-to-board connector, and the glue codes embedded into the Renesas software package, Quick Connect IoT enables Renesas sensors and MCUs to seamlessly transmit to a mobile application or the cloud.

Renesas’ 100W PD adapter is a multi-function PD adapter supporting 65W maximum PD output, BC1.2 fast charging, Qi 15W wireless charging, and two 5V2.1A USB A ports. It now includes the latest Dialog high power density AC/DC chipset (primary-side digital flyback controller / secondary side interface IC) with advanced zero voltage switching combined with Renesas’ USB PD controller, MOSFETs, PFC and wireless charging devices.

The Smart Tracking Label is an ultra-thin, credit card-sized, asset tracking solution to monitor and track environmental data through Bluetooth LE. It achieves optimal battery life via the low-power DA14531 Bluetooth LE 5.1 SoC combined with Renesas’ high-performance humidity and temperature sensors, with data logging stored via onboard serial Flash from Dialog. It provides 2-3 months of shelf life and roughly 30 days of active life using a rechargeable & disposable, printable 25mAh battery.

Additionally, Renesas released nine Winning Combinations designed specifically for Automotive customers that combine analog products from Dialog with a broad range of Renesas solutions.

One new solution for In-Vehicle Infotainment (IVI) includes a combination of Dialog’s PMIC and CMIC with Renesas’ automotive R-Car SoCs, buck regulators and timing ICs. Another Winning Combination combines Dialog’s LED backlight and haptic drivers with Renesas’ PMIC for LCD to realize an automotive display system. Further solutions combining Renesas and Dialog offerings are underway, including a Wireless Battery Management Systems (BMS) with Dialog’s Bluetooth LE IC and Renesas’ battery management ICs and MCUs.

Takeshi Kataoka, Senior Vice President & General Manager of the Automotive Solution Business Unit said that Dialog’s outstanding analog technologies add depth and breadth to Renesas’ automotive lineup. He also said that by combining the best of both companies’ offerings, they expect to develop innovative automotive products that reduce their customers’ development burden and time-to-market. They are offering multiple new, integrated solutions featuring Renesas and Dialog products immediately, and look forward to introducing more going forward.

Availability and More Information

Following the landmark acquisitions of Intersil and IDT, Renesas has developed more than 200 “Winning Combinations,” compelling product combinations that help their customers accelerate their designs and get to market faster.
