Strategic engagement will accelerate adoption of groundbreaking configurable mixed-signal IC technology.
Avnet, a global technology distributor and Silego Technology have reached a new exclusive global distribution channel agreement. Effective immediately, Avnet will be Silego’s only global distributor and will serve as Silego’s sole demand creation distributor in the Americas and Europe.
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 over 2.7 billion units have been sold.
“The phenomenal demand for devices like smartphones, tablets, wearables and IoT-enabled solutions have 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 GreenPAK 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.”
“Silego not only created the world’s first family of configurable mixed-signal ICs, but also enabled a paradigm shift for designers,” said John Teegen, chief executive officer, Silego. “This global and exclusive agreement enables us to leverage Avnet’s formidable field application engineering and prototyping resources to bring these benefits to many more customers.”
