Dialog shows power control for Freescale i.MX 6
Dialog Semiconductor says its system power management ICs (PMICs) are being used to optimise the power requirements of tablets and other devices based on Freescale multicore i.MX 6 series applications processors.
The Dialog device powers the i.MX 6 series system-on-chip and system peripherals on the NOVPEK i.MX6Q/D reference board, which has been co-developed with Freescale i.MX 6 series ecosystem partner NovTech.
Support for i.MX 6Solo/SoloLite is available via Dialog’s DA9053, which has previously featured on Freescale’s i.MX53 multimedia platform.
The device can deliver over 14A total power capability to the Freescale i.MX 6 series system including CPU, memories and other peripherals on the reference board. In addition, the chip delivers an unprecedented degree of flexibility and configurability to precisely control the start-up sequences, output voltages and DVC ramps.
The PMIC is used to deliver multiple settings for each peripheral voltage rail, programmable control for multiple power-on events and an accurate power consumption analysis framework to cut the power consumption of any i.MX 6 series application.
With the PMIC’s wide supply range of 2.7 to 5.5V, the reference board is able to use a single cell lithium battery as well as 5V power supply.
The NOVPEK i.MX6Q/D reference board will be on display during the Freescale Technology Forum, Beijing (14th – 15th August) in Dialog’s demo suite.
