July 04, 2002 by Jeff Shepard

Dialog Semiconductor plc (Nabern, Germany) announced that it has signed an agreement with Robert Bosch GmbH (Stuttgart, Germany) to develop high-voltage options for CMOS technology to be used in automotive applications. The two German companies will jointly qualify the technology for single-chip ICs to control small electrical motors, to be used by one of Bosch’s business units.

"With our power management and audio chips, we have proved in the wireless sector that we can work with leading industry players

to develop advanced solutions, which address the major challenge of enhanced market expectations," said Dialog Semiconductor President and CEO Roland Pudelko. "We now expect to be at the forefront of automotive electronics too."
