Dialog Semiconductor's FusionHD NOR Flash Memory Compatible and Qualified with its SmartBond Bluetooth Low Energy Wireless MCUs

According to the company, the DA1469x devices provide the processing power, resources, range and battery life needed for today's IoT products.

Dialog Semiconductor announced that its FusionHD NOR flash memories, which came to Dialog through its recent acquisition of Adesto Technologies, are compatible and qualified for use with Dialog's SmartBond DA1469x family of Bluetooth low energy (BLE) microcontrollers (MCUs). With the combined solution, customers can deploy the latest BLE technology while keeping power consumption to a minimum in a wide range of industrial and connected consumer applications.

The SmartBond DA1469x family represents Dialog's range of multi-core MCUs for wireless connectivity. The devices support applications while assuring low power consumption, and features including a Sensor Node Controller (SNC), advanced power management unit, software programmable protocol engine, advanced multi-level security, and a high level of integration for savings on bill of materials and PCB area.

FusionHD supports the code storage and data logging demands of feature-rich wearables, hearables, sensor edge devices, and industrial IoT systems. The devices are ideal for Bluetooth low energy enabled IoT applications, delivering ideal data transfer, security features, robust high-reliability operation, over-the-air updates, and power consumption that is up to 70% lower than comparable serial flash products.

FusionHD also delivers QSPI operation with continuous read XiP capability that allows direct code execution from the host DA1469x MCUs.
