Intel has selected the DA6021 power management IC from Dialog Semiconductor for its Bay Trail Atom processor platform for tablet computers.

Bay Trail is a mobile Atom system chip, suitable for inclusion in mobile phones, due to be announced in 2013 and made using Intel's 22nm FinFET manufacturing process. Steve Smith, director of tablet platform development at Intel said the Dialog PMIC would help deliver energy-efficient Atom-based tablets to market.

The DA6021 is included on the Bay Trail reference design board that is provided for software development, test and measurement as well as on a "form-factor" enclosed reference design that demonstrates tablet computer functionality, Dialog said.

"The performance and energy-efficiency gains that we expect Intel's next-generation processor will bring to tablets are complemented perfectly by the system-level power management capabilities of our PMIC, which has been designed to operate with both the processor and its peripherals," said Jalal Bagherli, CEO of Dialog, in a statement.

In addition, Dialog has said that Samsung Electronics has adopted the DA2083 PMIC with integrated audio functionality for use in the Samsung Galaxy Fame smartohone GT-S6810, due to ship in 1Q13.

The DA2083 integrates over 30 different power supply domains and analogue functions. Dialog already provides PMICs for the Samsung's S5368 and Galaxy Pocket S5300 smartphones.
