Silego Introduces Next “Flexible Power Islands” Device with Low Drop-Out Regulators
Silego Technology Inc. (Silego) announces the introduction of SLG46580, further expanding the GreenPAK™ family of Configurable Mixed-signal Integrated Circuits (CMICs). This newest GreenPAK is targeted to support power systems in wearable and handheld market segments. This device is both highly integrated and highly flexible, and can provide a rich set of features, including voltage monitoring, power sequencing, reset functions and low drop-out regulators (LDOs), that are configurable in settings and interconnect.
Power Sequencing with LDOs
Silego GreenPAK devices that include LDOs can serve as ultra-small power management integrated circuits (ICs). They are designed to create “Flexible Power Islands” (FPI), where the user can customize their power system to their individual application requirements. We will demonstrate how to create a custom power sequencing IC using low drop-out regulators with GreenPAK SLG46580.
Consumer electronics operating in the vicinity of edge connectors must be tolerant of electrical surges and abuses caused by an incorrect application of power adapters. This has made system-level over-voltage protection (OVP) a standard requirement. The SLG59H1302C’s 130 V surge protection rating is 30% stronger than the competition, and its 20-nanosecond reaction time to OVP events is at least seven times faster.

We will demonstrate how to implement a DC-DC flyback converter using GreenPAK, which can dynamically control the output voltage. Flyback converters are popular for low power applications such as backlighting for LCD monitors, micro pumps and piezo electronics, but is also reusable for applications ranging from 30 V to 450 V by simply varying configuration parameters.
