Renesas Electronics Corporation and Dialog Semiconductor Plc have officially joined forces, and as an immediate benefit to customers, Renesas announced 39 new Winning Combinations covering IoT, industrial and automotive markets. These expert designs showcase both Renesas’ and Dialog’s complementary, and now combined, product portfolios of Embedded Processing, Analog, Power, and Connectivity.
“The addition of Dialog to the Renesas portfolio presents a tremendous opportunity to drive growth and cross sales in our core segments of Power Management, Analog-Mixed Signal, Connectivity, Industrial and Standard Products. Additionally, Dialog’s focus on low-power technologies will allow us to further enhance sustainability across our product portfolio.” said Sailesh Chittipeddi, Executive Vice President & General Manager of the IoT and Infrastructure Business Unit.
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.
“The 39 Winning Combinations represent just the beginning,” said Chris Allexandre, Senior Vice President & Head of Sales and Corporate Digital Marketing of the IoT and Infrastructure Business Unit. “As we drive collaboration among the teams, our customers should start seeing the benefits of the combined portfolio in terms of getting their own solutions to market faster.”
Renesas is currently showcasing its key IoT and industrial Winning Combinations.
One example is the 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.
Another example, the 100-W PD adapter is a multi-function PD adapter supporting 65-W maximum PD output, BC1.2 fast charging, Qi 15-W wireless charging, and two 5-V/2.1-A 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 device 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 and disposable, printable 25 mAh 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 offering 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 products 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.
“Dialog’s outstanding analog technologies add depth and breadth to our automotive lineup,” said Takeshi Kataoka, Senior Vice President & General Manager of the Automotive Solution Business Unit. “By combining the best of both companies’ offerings, we expect to develop innovative automotive products that reduce our customers’ development burden and time-to-market. We are offering multiple new, integrated solutions featuring Renesas and Dialog products immediately, and look forward to introducing more going forward.”
Following the landmark acquisitions of Intersil and IDT, Renesas has developed more than 200 “Winning Combinations,” compelling product combinations that help our customers accelerate their designs and get to market faster. These portfolio combinations focus on verticals including industrial, infrastructure, automotive, and consumer segments to service more customers and partners worldwide.
All of the 39 new Renesas-plus-Dialog Winning Combinations, in addition to 200+ existing Winning Combinations, include block diagrams, product information, and the ability to sample and buy. They are available at renesas.com/win.
