Description: This presentation contains “forward-looking statements” that reflect management’s current views with respect to future events. The words “anticipate,” “believe,” “estimate, “expect,” “intend,” “may,” “plan,” “project” and “should” and similar expressions identify forward-looking statements. Such statements are subject to risks and uncertainties, including, but not limited to: an economic downturn in the semiconductor and telecommunications markets; changes in currency exchange rates and interest rates, the timing of customer orders and manufacturing lead times, insufficient, excess or obsolete inventory, the impact of competing products and their pricing, political risks in the countries in which we operate or sale and supply constraints.

Forward Looking Statement

This presentation contains “forward-looking statements” that reflect management’s current
views with respect to future events. The words “anticipate,” “believe,” “estimate, “expect,”
“intend,” “may,” “plan,” “project” and “should” and similar expressions identify forward-looking
statements. Such statements are subject to risks and uncertainties, including, but not limited to:
an economic downturn in the semiconductor and telecommunications markets; changes in
currency exchange rates and interest rates, the timing of customer orders and manufacturing
lead times, insufficient, excess or obsolete inventory, the impact of competing products and
their pricing, political risks in the countries in which we operate or sale and supply constraints.
If any of these or other risks and uncertainties occur (some of which are described under the
heading “Risks and their management” in Dialog Semiconductor’s most recent Annual Report)
or if the assumptions underlying any of these statements prove incorrect, then actual results
may be materially different from those expressed or implied by such statements. We do not
intend or assume any obligation to update any forward-looking statement, which speaks only
as of the date on which it is made, however, any subsequent statement will supersede any
previous statement.

GAN Value Proposition: Mobile Adapters
Higher efficiency


Cut power losses by ½, increase
efficiency to ~ 94%

Eliminate discrete
switches

Power density



Shrink transformer

Wall adapters that are ½ the size
More power in the same form
factor or shrink adapter size

Shrink or eliminate
snubbing and filtering

Lower costs
