April 2016

Silego Technology recently announced a new addition to the fifth generation of GreenPAK™ (GPAK™) Programmable Mixed-signal ICs. The SLG46532V GPAK 5 further expands Silego’s industry leading platform of Configurable Mixed-signal ICs (CMICs).
Available in a 2.0 x 3.0 mm 20-pin STQFN with 17-GPIO, the SLG46532V comes with a host of features including an Asynchronous State Machine, I2C, Dual Supply, and a variety of programmable analog and digital blocks.

GreenPAK 5 vs. Low Power Microcontrollers for IoT, Portable, and Wearable Applications
When designing portable battery powered systems, size and battery life constraints are often the most severe challenges to overcome. One traditional way to pack a lot of functionality into a small size and power budget is to use a low power microcontroller such as TI’s popular MSP430. These types of ultra-low power microcontrollers offer high levels of flexibility and are available in small packages, allowing a system to run for not only days, but months and years on a single battery cell. Silego Technology has taken a different approach in attacking this same problem, by adding a user programmable Asynchronous State Machine (ASM) macrocell to our GreenPAK 5 product family.

Application Notes
Using GreenPAK's I2C Port to Control an RGB LED's Color (AN-1098)
This app note explains how to reconfigure the SLG46531’s registers via I2C. Specifically, it shows how to change the registers associated with counters that set the PWM values for driving the R, G, and B cathodes of an LED. It is important to note that any reconfigurations via I2C are volatile and will revert to the programmed code after POR inside the GPAK resets.
 
Using GreenPAK’s I2C Port to Control an RGB LED Pulse (AN-1099)
This app note explains how to reconfigure the SLG46531’s registers via I2C. Specifically, it shows how to change the registers associated with counters that set the on and off time for driving the R, G, and B cathodes of an LED. This creates a repetitive output pulse of light. It is important to note that any reconfigurations via I2C are volatile and will revert to the programmed code after the POR inside the GPAK resets.
 
Using GreenPAK’s I2C Port to Control an RGB LED Breathing Pattern (AN-1100)
This app note explains how to reconfigure the SLG46531’s registers via I2C. Specifically, it shows how to change the registers associated with counters that set the PWM ramp for driving the R, G, and B cathodes of an LED. This creates a breathing pattern of light. It is important to note that any reconfigurations via I2C are volatile and will revert to the programmed code after the POR inside the GPAK resets.
