If you have read the white paper recently launched by Dolphin, “New Power Management IP Solution from Dolphin Integration can dramatically increase SoC Energy Efficiency”, you should already know about the theory. This is a good basis to go further and discover some real-life examples, like Bluetooth Low Energy (BLE) chip in … Read More

This blog is the synthesis of a white paper “New Power Management IP Solution from Dolphin Integration can dramatically increase SoC Energy Efficiency”, which can be found on Dolphin Integration web site.
The power consumption generated by complex chips was not a real issue when the system could be simply plugged in the wall to … Read More
You may have seen this Press Release (see below) announcing that Dolphin Integration (Dolphin) has been acquired by Soitec (60%) and MBDA (40%) – you can see more information about these two companies at the bottom of this blog. Founded in 1985, Dolphin had some recurrent cash flow issues during the last couple of years, that they… Read More
Dolphin is addressing the ultra-low-power (ULP) needs for some applications, like for example Bluetooth low energy (BLE), machine-to-machine (M2M) or IoT edge devices in general. For these applications, defining active and sleep modes is imperative, but it may not be enough to guarantee that the battery-powered system will… Read More
With the old fashioned on-off power switch came certainty of power consumption levels. This was fine back in the days before processor controlled appliances and devices. On was on and off was off: full current or no current. With the first personal computers you always had to wait for the boot process to complete before you could … Read More
Designing for ultra-low power will become the mantra for many of the new SoC designs, but the related SoC architecture can be very complex to handle. Make or buy is the project manager choice, but if you decide to ask for an expert advice before jumping start an ULP SoC design, attending thiswebinar from Dolphin Integration “The Proven… Read More
Dolphin will hold a live webinar on November 15, 9:00 AM PST or November 22, 10:00 AM GMT. This webinar targets the SoC designers wanting to learn how to quickly implement ultra-low power (uLP) techniques, using proven recipes.… Read More
Dolphin Integration launched a new 32-bit microcontroller, RISC-351 Zephyr, targeting low-power SoCs for IoT-like competitive markets taking into consideration three angles for optimization of power consumption: architectural, memory and software.
As a reminder, 8-bit versus 16-bit versus 32-bit… Read More
