Silego hits 3 billion unit CMIC milestone

August 21, 2017 //By Peter Clarke
Silego Technology Inc. (Santa Clara, Calif.) has shipped more than 3 billion units of its configurable mixed-signal ICs (CMICs) since their introduction about three years ago.

One year ago Silego was boasting it had shipped 1 billion units in the product range's first two years of existence (see Silego scaling cost-effective agility in mixed-signal ).

CMICs use non-volatile memory and switchable blocks to configure devices that integrate analog, digital logic, and power functions. They are roughly analogous to FPGAs although tend to be based on specific mixed-signal circuit applications on PCBs where they can sweep up numerous standard linear, passive and discrete components.

Since the introduction of the CMIC, Silego has developed five generations of CMIC silicon and design tools and thousands of designs incorporating CMICs have been deployed in electronics sectors from consumer to medical and industrial.

"Over the past year, we have grown our business with existing customers and introduced CMICs to many new customers," said Mike Noonen, vice president of worldwide sales and business development, in a statement. "These customers have discovered Silego's clever combination of analog, digital, nonvolatile memory and software tools and are benefiting from a better way to design, prototype and go to production."
