Avnet Silica to Franchise Silego Technology
Silego pioneered the development of Configurable Mixed-signal ICs (CMICs), using non-volatile memory to configure and integrate analog, digital logic and power functions enabling design engineers to reduce power, cost, size and time to market. Since the introduction of the CMIC technology, Silego has developed five generations of CMIC silicon and design tools and sold over 2.7 billion units.
“The phenomenal demand for devices like smartphones, tablets, wearables and IoT-enabled solutions has compounded designers’ long-standing mandate for ‘smaller, faster, cheaper,’” said Lynn Torrel, senior vice president, semiconductor business development, worldwide for Avnet. “Silego’s unique CMIC GreenPAKTM platform and Integrated Power Switch (IPS) portfolio, provide designers with new levels of configurability, power and performance that can significantly accelerate and optimize the development of truly differentiated devices and systems. We appreciate the trust Silego has demonstrated in Avnet with this exclusive agreement and are looking forward to a long and prosperous collaboration.”
“Configurable mixed-signal ICs are an important technology that can mean the functional replacement of many other devices leading to smaller footprint in board real estate and a lower bill of materials, as well as enabling engineers to develop their own customized mixed-signal solutions,” said Laurence Dellicott, technical marketing director, Avnet Silica. “We are delighted to add these Silego products to our portfolio as an additional system building block that we can offer to key European customers operating across a wide range of markets including data communication, consumer, as well as the industrial sector.”
