Smaller form factors and longer battery life promised

has developed a high-performance audio and power management for Intel's Moorestown Atom processor-based platforms.

The chip set is designed to efficiently manage processing power while enabling smaller form factors and longer battery life in next-generation mobile connected devices. Developed in conjunction with Intel, Freescale's power management IC (PMIC) is based around  two chips using Freescale's  SMARTMOS technology, a high-voltage CMOS-based process that enables high integration of precision analog, power and logic.

According to Freescale, when paired with Intel's low-power processors and chipsets, it chipset provides increased energy efficiency for Intel-based tablets, smartphones and other Internet consumer devices.

Scott Ward, vice president and general manager of Freescale's Analog, Mixed-Signal & Power Division said that the  combination of Intel's Atom processor and Freescale's PMIC will allow new ideas that were impossible with current mobile products.
