Dialog Semiconductor and Telechips, Automotive System on Chip (SoC) supplier for In-Vehicle Infotainment (IVI) and cockpit solutions, has announced that Dialog will become Telechips’ preferred power management partner for their new Dolphin+QD (TCC8059), Dolphin 3E (TCC8053) / Dolphin 3M (TCC8050) and Dolphin 3H (TCC8060) platforms.

This expanded partnership builds on their cooperation on the Telechips Dolphin+ automotive platform and targets next generation functionally safe intelligent Infotainment, Cluster, Head Up Display, and Integrated Cockpit Electronic Control Units (ECUs).

Dialog’s 'Exact Fit' power solution is comprised of the DA9062-A system PMIC, and the recently announced DA9130-A and DA9131-A sub PMICs. These AEC-Q100 Grade 2 qualified, highly integrated devices deliver a combined 21.5 amps of current, enabling the new Telechips platforms to deliver maximum performance.

In addition, the Dolphin 3 platforms use Dynamic Voltage Scaling (DVS) to reduce SoC power dissipation and thermal footprint. This feature, as well as other power savings features including programmable sleep modes, are easily supported by the Dialog Power solution. 

“Our expanding partnership with Telechips is greatly benefitting automotive electronic suppliers as they continue to require high performance, feature rich, SoC platforms at very competitive cost points.  Dialog’s PMIC solutions are uniquely capable of delivering the flexibility, scalability, and auto-grade reliability that Telechips customers require,” said Tom Sandoval, Senior Vice President, GM Automotive Business Segment, Dialog Semiconductor.

The greatest advantage of the new Dolphin series of products is a hypervisor-less cockpit, which allows customers to use 2 operating systems simultaneously on a Cortex-A72 and a Cortex-A53 CPU without a hypervisor. Dolphin3 not only has high GPU benchmark performance, but also an outstanding VPU.

Automotive customers can experience rich and vivid graphical user interfaces using DP1.4, Open LDI, MIPI-CSI2, and can operate multiple displays and cameras with vision processing. In addition, the Telechips Dolphin3 solutions can run automotive grade operating systems such as Android, Linux, QNX and Green Hills.

Finally, the Dolphin family of devices also meet the full EVITA, Chinese crypto, AEC-Q100 and ASIL B functional safety requirements.

“With our customers demanding solutions ranging from entry level to the high end, we are fortunate to have Dialog’s flexible/scalable power solutions. Telechips delivers differentiated connected car platforms that support a wide variety of cost and performance levels with the Dialog family of PMIC’s,” said Steve Wahl, CEO, Telechips USA, Inc.

The DA9062-A system PMIC, DA9130-A sub-PMIC, and DA9131-A 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.

An intuitive GUI (Smart Canvas) simplifies the customisation to achieve an 'exact fit' power management solution. The result is a highly optimised, cost effective power management solution that enables the most competitive, differentiated system design. 

All devices are available as full AEC-Q100 Grade 2 qualified devices.
