SmartBond(TM) DA14681 delivers the highest performance, lowest power consumption, smallest footprint and lowest system cost to simplify the creation of IoT devices. London, United Kingdom - September 21, 2016 - Dialog Semiconductor plc (XETRA:DLG), a provider of highly integrated power management, AC/DC power conversion, solid state lighting (SSL) and Bluetooth(R) low energy (LE) technology, today announced the launch of SmartBond(TM) DA14681, the world's most integrated single-chip solution that provides connectivity for rechargeable devices, including wearables, smart home and other emerging Internet of Things (IoT) devices. As a SmartBond device, Dialog's DA14681 intelligently balances performance and power efficiency, delivering high-power processing when it's needed up to 96 MHz from its ARM(R) Cortex(TM) M0 processor and saving power when it isn't, by consuming less than one µA when in standby. This makes it ideal for managing multi-sensor arrays and enables always-on sensing. The highly integrated solution supports the latest Bluetooth 4.2 standard, and its integrated Power Management Unit (PMU) provides three independent power rails to supply external system components, in addition to an on-chip charger and fuel gauge, allowing DA14681 to recharge batteries over a USB interface. Due to its unique architecture, it is able to power a complete IoT system without the need for additional external power management circuitry. "The increasing demands of today's connected devices market calls for an integrated solution that delivers the right balance of high power and efficiency," said Sean McGrath, SVP and GM Connectivity, Automotive and Industrial Business Group, Dialog Semiconductor. "SmartBond(TM) DA14681 is our greatest leap yet in delivering an integrated SoC that meets not only the needs of today's consumers but tomorrow's as well, with a design that empowers developers to simply attach a battery or sensors to create a complete IoT device. The DA14681 is already shipping in high volume at tier one OEMs for applications including wearables and virtual reality (VR)," added McGrath. DA14681 is the second member of a device family that includes the popular ultra-low power DA14680. In addition to the DA14680's functionalities, the DA14681 delivers unparalleled flexibility offering virtually unlimited computing space to software application developers by enabling the latter to expand the size of their code execution space through a flexible external memory interface. It can execute code from an external flash or OTP memory for maximum design freedom, with expandable execution space for applications. To complete the package, Dialog has designed the SoC to feature banking-level security with a dedicated hardware crypto engine to keep personal data safe and enable end-to-end application encryption.
