Dialog Terminates Merger Discussions

Dialog Semiconductor Plc (XTRA:DLG) has been unable to agree suitable terms for a transaction and has terminated discussions with ams AG (SWX:AMS) regarding a possible merger of equals of the two companies. Dialog remains committed to exploring opportunities to enhance its product portfolio and expand its addressable market through strategic transactions.

ams To Make An Offer For Dialog Semiconductor

ams AG (SWX:AMS) and Dialog Semiconductor Plc (XTRA:DLG) have confirmed that they are in preliminary discussions regarding a possible merger of equals. In accordance with Rule 2.6(a) of the City Code on Takeovers and Mergers (the "Code"), ams AG must, by not later than 5.00 p.m. on July 24, 2014, either announce a firm intention to make an offer for Dialog Semiconductor Plc (as appropriate) in accordance with Rule 2.7 of the Code or announce that it does not intend to make an offer, in which case the announcement will be treated as a statement to which Rule 2.8 of the Code applies. This deadline will only be extended with the consent of the Panel in accordance with Rule 2.6(c) of the Code. Johannes Groeller, Sumit Pande and Massimiliano Gino of Morgan Stanley acted as financial advisors for Dialog Semiconductor. Wilhelm Schulz and Hendrik Hilgert Simon Lindsay of Citi acted as financial advisors for ams.

ams AG Announces New Series of Magnetic Position Sensors

ams AG introduced a new series of magnetic position sensors featuring a technology capable of producing extremely accurate angle measurements of rotors spinning at high speed. The new "47 series" position sensors include the AS5047D, AS5147 and AS5247 with DAEC(TM) (Dynamic Angle Error Compensation), a patent-pending technology developed by ams that eliminates the measurement error attributable to propagation delay. The AS5047D is ideally suited for industrial applications including robots and encoder modules. The AS5147 is an AEC-Q100 qualified part for automotive applications such as electronic power steering and pumps. The dual-die AS5247 (also AEC-Q100 qualified) is well suited for automotive applications requiring the high level of functional safety compliance. All three parts are specified with a maximum +/-0.17deg angle error (excluding integral non-linearity). This precision measurement performance is the result of implementing DAEC, an algorithm which performs error compensation internally and responds automatically to changes in the speed of rotation. Traditional magnetic rotary position sensor ICs suffer from a propagation delay (typically 100-200us) as they convert raw measurements of magnetic field strength at their embedded magnetic elements into digital angle measurements. During this delay, a spinning rotor's angular displacement changes, so that its actual position when the digital output leaves the sensor differs from its measured position. The resulting error increases in a linear fashion with increases in the speed of rotation: for a propagation delay of 100us, at 1,000rpm the dynamic angle error is 1.2deg and at 10,000rpm it is 12deg. DAEC almost completely eliminates this source of error, dynamically compensating every measurement sample for the speed of rotation at the time the sample is captured. The 47 series sensors provide angle measurements accurate to +/-0.08deg at 7,000rpm, to +/-0.14deg at 12,000rpm and to +/-0.17deg at 14,500rpm. With its extreme accuracy, the ams 47 Series is ideally suited to all motor control and angle measurement applications. In high-speed brushless DC (BLDC) motors and permanent magnet synchronous motors (PMSM) the sensor's high accuracy enables better execution of the commutation scheme, resulting in higher torque and efficiency, lower torque ripple and smoother operation. All three devices provide absolute position measurements as a digital PWM output, and UVW outputs for use in field-oriented commutation schemes. They also provide an incremental ABI output equivalent to the output of an optical encoder. This means an AS5047D IC can replace an optical encoder without requiring the user to change the software interface in the host system's microcontroller or DSP. The 47 Series devices offer high 14-bit resolution (to 0.022deg) in their digital SPI output, and maximum resolution of 2,000 steps per revolution in decimal mode and 2,048 steps per revolution in binary ABI mode. Like all ams magnetic position sensors, the new 47 Series benefits from a proven differential sensing technique, which offers immunity to stray magnetic fields and enables the devices to be used in electrically noisy environments without any requirement for shielding.
