Dialog Semiconductor, a provider of battery management, AC/DC power conversion, Wi-Fi, BluetoothLE, and Industrial ICs, announced that it has expanded its collaboration with Xilinx — which offers adaptive computing.
The Xilinx Kria portfolio of adaptive SOMs are production-ready small form factor embedded boards that enable rapid deployment in edge-based applications. Coupled with a complete software stack and pre-built, production-grade accelerated applications, Kria adaptive SOMs are a new method of bringing adaptive computing to AI and software developers.
While the Kria K26 SOM is at its most efficient at 10W, Dialog’s DA9062, DA9130, and DA9131 PMICs can deliver a combined 21.5 amps of current enabling the platform to operate at maximum performance. In addition, the Kria K26 and KV260 Vision AI Starter Kit use Dialog’s GreenPAK Configurable Mixed-signal ICs to enable a completely customized power sequencing, supervisory, and Power-on reset (PoR) solution.
“Xilinx’s market leading Kria adaptive SOMs take full advantage of Dialog’s flexible/scalable power solutions in combination with GreenPAK,” said Tom Sandoval, senior VP, GM Automotive Business Segment. “Our close collaboration with Xilinx has enabled a high-performance, fully programmable vision AI platform that will greatly benefit customers.”
The highly configurable nature of GreenPAK allows for easy implementation of a low cost, small footprint, granular power sequencing scheme that truly maximizes system power efficiency.
“Dialog Semiconductor’s highly integrated PMICs have allowed us to deliver a credit card sized Kria K26 SOM with a highly efficient power system enabling Xilinx customers to fast track their vision AI applications in the retail analytics, security, smart camera, and machine vision markets,” said Kirk Saban, VP, Product and Platform Marketing at Xilinx.
The DA9062 system PMIC, DA9130 sub-PMIC, and DA9131 sub-PMIC, feature significant scalability and flexibility advantages while distributing heat dissipation in elevated temperature environments. The built-in configurability engines provide system designers the ability to easily solve their power sequencing, thermal, and system control challenges.
Dialog’s intuitive SmartCanvas GUI simplifies the customization to achieve an “exact fit” power management solution. The result is a highly optimized, cost-effective power management solution that enables the most competitive, differentiated system design. These devices are available in commercial/industrial grade, as well as Automotive grade versions.
GreenPAK devices combines analog, digital, and nonvolatile-memory functionality with intuitive software tools for fast, simple designs and prototyping. With GreenPAKs, OEMs can deliver cost-effective, customized ICs for high-volume applications to the market faster and with great design flexibility.
Dialog offers a broad portfolio of GreenPAK devices in both commercial grades, as well AEC-Q100 Grade 1 & 2.
