Silego’s Latest Configurable Mixed-signal ICs Pack Plenty of Analog & Digital Functionality in Tiny Packages


Six New GreenPAKs Offer Asynchronous State Machine, I2C, Dual Supply and more in 2.0 x 2.2 mm packages.

Munich, Germany – November 7, 2016 – Silego Technology announces three new 14-pin and three new 22-pin 2.0 x 2.2 mm GreenPAKTM Programmable Mixed-signal Matrix ICs, further expanding Silego’s industry leading platform of Configurable Mixed-signal ICs (CMICs).

Silego originally made this announcement at a press conference held in advance of electronica, “the World's Leading Trade Fair for Electronic Components, Systems and Applications,” in Munich, Germany. At this conference, Silego made several other announcements that we believe further reinforces Silego’s position as a market leader in Configurable Mixed-signal and Power solutions with advanced system protection features.

The six new, feature-rich CMIC devices are designed to implement many system functions, such as system reset, power sequencing, voltage monitoring, and more, with minimal space and power overhead. The devices have been designed to make adding new features to highly integrated systems relatively easy with integrated, programmable analog and digital components, such as look-up tables, D-flip flops, counters, delays, analog comparators, and more.

Also included in these devices are the Asynchronous State Machine and I2C blocks. These two features add more flexibility, functionality, and ease of design to the GreenPAK family of devices. With the addition of the Asynchronous State Machine, designers can implement up to 8 unique states with zero code, zero static power, and fail-safe operation. GreenPAK I2C enables designers to change device configuration, such as analog comparator thresholds, quickly, and allows designers to act as a GPIO expander, writing digital signals to component inputs.

Like other devices in the GreenPAK family, creating custom mixed-signal projects is made simple using the GreenPAK development hardware and simple GUI interface of GreenPAK Designer, allowing engineers to quickly and easily implement new designs and respond to changing design requirements. Additionally, with these devices, designers can now perform on-board emulation and in-system debug, using I2C.

“These six new devices allow us to offer even more value in a smaller area,” states Sean Carty, Sr. Product Marketing Engineer. “We believe the amount of flexibility and features these devices provide in just 4.4 mm2 is phenomenal. Silego continues to add new and exciting products, bringing more solutions to our customers to facilitate differentiation in their products using minimal additional board space and power.”

Since the introduction of the CMIC platform, Silego has developed five generations of CMIC silicon and design tools. Each generation has added functionality and enhanced the design experience. As a result, over 1,300 designs incorporating CMICs by Silego customers have gone into production in almost every end market:

  • Handheld Devices
  • Wearable Electronics
  • Computing & Storage
  • Consumer Electronics
  • Smart Home
  • Networking & Communications
  • Medical & Industrial

The new part numbers are the 14-pin SLG46534V, SLG46535V, and SLG46536V as well as the 22-pin SLG46533M, SLG46537M, and SLG46538M.
