KIRCHHEIM/TECK, Germany -- February 21, 2013

Dialog Semiconductor plc (FWB: DLG), a provider of highly integrated power
management, audio and short range wireless technologies, announced today that
Intel Corporation and Dialog have expanded their collaboration for the
development of a single-chip power management IC (PMIC).

Together with the next generation Intel(R) Atom(TM) processor, codename 'Bay
Trail', this PMIC delivers outstanding battery life for tablet designs, a
critical factor in consumer product choice. Dialog's DA6021 PMIC was optimised
to be a system power management device on Intel's reference design vehicle: an
'open bench top' customer reference board/kit for test, measurement and
software development as well as an enclosed form-factor reference design that
requires minimal additional hardware to complete the rapid development of
tablet computers.

Dr Jalal Bagherli, CEO of Dialog, commented, 'The tablet market represents an
exciting growth opportunity and we're delighted to be working with Intel in
delivering a vital component for the energy-friendly next generation Intel
Atom platform. The performance and energy-efficiency gains that we expect
Intel's next generation processor will bring to tablets are complemented
perfectly by the system-level power management capabilities of our PMIC, which
has been designed to operate with both the processor and its peripherals.

'Battery life is one of the major factors that determine consumer choice in
this product category and the goal of our close collaboration with Intel has
been to make the resulting products best-in-class in this respect,' concluded
Bagherli.

'We are pleased to work with Dialog to enable their power management solution
for Intel's Bay Trail platform,' said Steve Smith, Intel VP and director of
Tablet Platform Development. 'Dialog's expertise in highly integrated, mixed
signal analog components provides a valuable contribution, delivering
competitive, energy-efficient next generation Atom-based tablets to the
market.'
