Dialog Semi's gambit on mobile 2D/3D chip
December 13, 2010 // Junko Yoshida
Dialog Semiconductor will enter a new phase of its long metamorphosis when it announces Monday (December 13th) a real-time 2-D-to-3-D video conversion IC designed for portable devices.
Dialog (Kirchheim unter Teck, Germany) traces its heritage back to 1981, when Silicon Valley-based International Microelectronic Products established its European operations. The German company became Dialog in 1989, first as a part of Daimler-Benz, then as independent power management ASIC specialist Dialog plc.
The company began diversifying its portfolio after Bagherlis arrival. In the past 12 months alone, Dialog, while keeping its ASIC expertise, has added such standard products as low-power audio codec and driver ICs for next-generation mobile displays. The 3-D video conversion IC for mobile is scheduled for sampling early next year.
At the same time, Bagherli said that the company remains committed to its core competency, which is managing power in all portable devices.
Dialog today boasts a revenue track record of three years of quarterly year-on-year growth. Weve kept growing right through the recession, outpacing the industry, with 13 consecutive profitable quarters, Bagherli said in an exclusive interview with EE Times.
The companys fortunes are riding on the continued market growth of such end products as cell phones, media tablets, portable entertainment platforms and even personal medical devices. Given the rapidly expanding markets for such products, Dialogs competitors are many and formidable.
In power management, Dialog competes with the likes of Maxim, STMicroelectronics and Texas Instruments. In the audio chip market, it battles with Cirrus Logic, TI and Wolfson. In 2-D-to-3-D conversion, Dialog expects to compete with application processors such as TIs Omap.All news
