Developed in conjunction with Intel, the NEC Electronics PMIC solution combines power management, logic, and audio and voice communications functions to maximize battery life, support high levels of integration and minimize board space for Internet and cellular network access, multimedia playback, navigation, gaming, social networking and other Web 2.0 applications.
“NEC Electronics has applied its strong technical expertise in power management and deep system-level knowledge of mobile devices to the development of a highly integrated PMIC solution for Intel-based next generation Mobile Internet Devices,” said Tsutomu Aoki, general manager, Power Management Devices Division, NEC Electronics Corporation. “In showcasing working silicon, we demonstrate to our customers that we are ready to help them develop next-generation consumer devices today.”
“Mobile Internet Devices enable a great Internet experience – with long battery life in increasingly pocketable devices,” said Pankaj Kedia, director of Global Ecosystem Programs in the Ultra Mobility Group at Intel Corporation. “MIDs based on Intel’s low power technologies, combined with NEC Electronics’ power management ICs, will make it easier for our customers to design and bring to market increasingly smaller form factors with longer battery life.”
NEC Electronics has strong experience developing highly integrated PMICs for customers in mobile markets for more than 15 years. Developed in one of the most advanced process nodes available, the world-class PMIC offering already has proven successful for NEC Electronics Corporation.
