Dialog Semiconductor ICs adopted for Samsung Android smartphones
Samsung's latest S-5368 TD-SCDMA smartphone will incorporate Dialog Semiconductor's system level power management and low power audio ICs in a system in package.
Samsung selected Dialog as it was the first company to combine a complex system power management IC that is fully compatible for multiple platforms, with a low power class D audio codec IC that includes a dsp in a single package. This, says Dialog, enables 'significant' power and board space savings, while delivering 'the highest quality audio' for Samsung's new smartphones.
Samsung's S-5368 is the latest smartphone, of which the company shipped 28million in Q3 2011, and is targeted at the Chinese market. It measures 107 × 60.5 × 11.9mm and is based on the Android 2.3 operating system.
Jalal Bagherli, ceo of Dialog, pictured, said: "This is a significant milestone for Dialog as we extend our leadership in power management ICs and high quality audio for smartphones. We now look forward to the global roll out of additional models based on this platform in the coming months, which will also include smartphones for the very popular Galaxy S-II series."
