May 2016

Silego Technology recently announced an expansion of its state-of-the-art PFET integrated power controller portfolio with a new family of self-powered, 1.6 mm², single-channel and dual-channel very low-power controllers with reverse-current protection. Designed for all high-side, 1.5 V to 5.5 V power rail applications, these new PFET power controllers achieve an ultra-stable 23 mΩ RDSON over temperature. Using Silego’s proprietary CuFET™ technology, these new products can handle load currents up to 4 A and exhibit low thermal resistance. The reverse-current protection feature is very useful in applications where a VOUT-to-VIN backfeed current to the VIN power source is to be avoided.

Silego Announces a Dual 375nA Op Amp with Independent Shutdowns
The new SLG88101 is a dual operational amplifier with independent shutdowns. This op amp pairs nicely with our ultra-low power GPAK™ mixed-signal matrix products. For example: our new GPAK5 with its zero static power and zero code asynchronous state machine can easily make decisions from the analog signals received from the SLG88101 and issue digital commands consuming less than a combined total of 1uA.

Application Notes
I2C Controlled State Machine (AN-1092)
One of the asynchronous state machine's "ASM" biggest benefits is decreasing the complexity of designs. The combination of the ASM and the I2C macro-cell gives the system engineer nearly unlimited flexibility in constructing their design. For example, counter timings, comparator thresholds, and look-up-tables can be changed during runtime. This application note shows how to reset and restart the state machine via I2C.
 
Tiny Metal Detector (AN-1095)
This GreenPAK application describes a short range metal detector useful for positioning proximity and robotics. Some examples include car doors, refrigerator doors, covers of various devices, lids, security interlocks, keys or locks. Typical implementations using optical couplers or inductive metal detectors usually result in relatively expensive components.
