Silego Announces Shipping More Than 2 Billion Configurable Mixed-signal ICs

SANTA CLARA, Calif., Aug. 29, 2016 — (PRNewswire) —  Silego Technology today announced shipping two billion units since its introduction of the pioneering Configurable Mixed-signal ICs (CMICs). In just two years since Silego Technology announced shipment of its billionth unit, Silego has more than doubled its total volume shipped.

Silego created not only the world's first family of Configurable Mixed-signal ICs but also enabled a paradigm shift for designers. Reaching this significant milestone is validation of the Configurable Mixed-signal IC category and a demonstration of how eagerly customers have embraced this new approach to mixed-signal design for volume applications.

Silego's CMICs use Non-Volatile Memory to configure each device and integrate analog, digital logic, and power functions, which allows design engineers to eliminate traditional standard linear, passive and discrete components from their system. CMICs enable original equipment manufacturers, or OEMs, in high-volume applications to cost-effectively deliver their products to market faster and with greater design flexibility.

Since the introduction of the CMIC, Silego has developed five generations of CMIC silicon and design tools. Each generation has added functionality and enhanced the design experience. As a result, over 1300 designs incorporating CMICs by Silego customers have gone into production in almost every end market:

  • Handheld Devices
  • Wearable Electronics
  • Computing & Storage
  • Consumer Electronics
  • Smart Home
  • Networking & Communications
  • Medical & Industrial

Many of these customers have completed multiple designs as they have seen the many benefits of CMICs:

  • Integration of both analog and digital functions (unlike FPGAs)
  • Cost effective product differentiation
  • Smaller footprint by eliminating components and easing routing congestion
  • Lower power consumption
  • Fast time to market with easy-to-use GPAK™ development hardware and GPAK Designer software      

The most recent generation, GPAK 5, has further expanded this industry leading platform with the addition of a new I2C block. The GPAK 5 I2C enables designers to read and change device configuration, such as analog comparator thresholds, on the fly.

John Teegen, Silego's CEO, remarked, "Reaching the milestone of shipping two billion units is an exciting achievement made possible by the innovative Silego team and our enthusiastic customers. Reaching two billion units is just the beginning."

"Silego's strong customer relationships continue to help us grow and shape our CMIC product roadmaps to anticipate the needs of leading edge products," said John McDonald, VP of Marketing. "Our customers' success is our success, and our customers are doing very well with Configurable Mixed-signal ICs."

"Silego's ability to offer the combination of mixed signal functionality and programmable logic in small footprints and at low cost is a true game-changer in many designs," said Rich Wawrzyniak, Principal Analyst for ASIC & SoC at Semico Research. "Silego is one of the best kept secrets in Silicon Valley. This is truly a very innovative solution to a very complex problem."

Mike Noonen, Silego's VP of WW Sales and Business Development added, "With the clever combination of analog, digital, Non-Volatile memory and software tools, Silego has created a new category of semiconductors and a better way to design, prototype and go to production."
