Dialog
Semiconductor PLC
 has launched its first fully integrated nanopower power management ICs (PMICs) for IoT applications. Building on the nanopower family, the new DA9070 and DA9073PMICs target low-power IoT applications such as fitness trackers, smartwatches,
and smart-home products. These always-on applications place bigger challenges on a device’s battery life.

“With board area already at a premium for engineers, new power management solutions are increasingly favored over increasing battery capacity,” said Dialog.

As a result, Dialog developed the nanopower PMICs that extend battery life by drawing 

Dialog Semiconductor is showcasing the DA9070 and DA9073 at Electronica 2018 in Munich, Germany, Nov. 13–16, 2018.
