Silego’s GPAK family of Configurable Mixed-signal ICs (CMICs) is designed to easily integrate common discrete ICs and passive components into a single device with programmable Non-Volatile Memory.
The SLG46108V brings the functionality and versatility of the GPAK™ family into the 1.0 x 1.2 x 0.55 mm, 6-GPIO STQFN package. The 1.8 V to 5 V VDD device contains: four Look Up Tables (LUTs), seven Combination Function Macrocells, three 8-bit counter/delays with external clock/reset, RC Oscillator (25 kHz / 2 MHz) and Power-On-Reset.

Application Notes
Mobile Dino Game (AN-1094)
With so many advances in phones and apps, the cell phone is often used more for mobile entertainment than for making calls. So it makes sense to free up an entire cell phone if a popular game can be implemented in simple hardware. The Silego Dino Game does just that, based on the Android OS – Google Chrome offline game.
 
Self-referencing Capacitive Touch Sensor (AN-1103)
Capacitive touch sensors are commonly used for human control interfaces. Being a nonmechanical system, they do not wear out like mechanical switches and are relatively low cost. This application note shows an improved capacitive touch sensing algorithm that can be implemented with any GPAK4 device.
 
I2C-Readable Analog to Digital Converter (AN-1102)
This app note will explain how to use GreenPAK to measure an analog voltage, convert it to a digital value using an 8-bit Analog to Digital Converter (ADC), transmit the data via I2C, and read the I2C command using an Arduino Uno Microcontroller.
 
I2C Level Shifter (AN-1104)
I2C level-shifters are very useful when two I2C-enabled devices need to communicate to each other across different voltage domains (VDD). Silego’s dual-rail programmable logic IC can be programmed to function as an I2C level-shifter. This application note explains how to build an I2C level-shifter that meets I2C Fast Mode specs, which has a max data rate of 400 kbps.
