Lenovo Using Dialog’s Power ICs in New Smartphone

27 October 2014

Dialog Semiconductor plc’s DA9210 power management chip has been incorporated into Lenovo’s Vibe X2 smartphone targeted at providing better multi-tasking and extended battery life.

The Vibe X2 features the MediaTek MT6595 system-on-chip (SoC), 32G of internal storage, a JBL speaker, supplemental battery and a 5-inch FHD resolution display. Dialog’s DC-DC buck converter incorporated into the Vibe utilizes the MediaTek SoC to adapt to the processor load resulting in better performance while operating at a lower power, Dialog said.

Jeff Hsieh, director of product development at Lenovo, said in a statement that since 2010 Lenovo has “grown into the world’s third best-selling smartphone company” due to addressing needs in areas such as power management. This is where Dialog makes a “significant difference” in design, Hsieh said.

Udo Kratz, senior VP and GM of Dialog’s Mobile Systems Business group, said in the same statement that Vibe X2’s consumer appeal will come from the ability of “users to multi-task and use data-intensive applications simultaneously.” He added Lenovo creates a new standard for performance in smartphones by optimizing “the control of the power management system.”
