Avnet is named exclusive, global distributor for Silego Technology
An exclusive agreement with distributor Avnet and the pioneer of configurable mixed-signal integrated circuits (CMICs), Silego Technology, will accelerate adoption of CMIC technology, says Silego.
The exclusive, global distribution channel agreement is effective immediately. Avnet will be Silego’s sole demand creation distributor in the Americas and Europe. Avnet will also bolster
Silego’s current regional distributor network in Japan, Korea, Taiwan and China.
Silego developed CMICs, using non-volatile memory to configure and integrate analogue, digital logic and power functions, eliminating passive and discrete components, to enable design engineers to reduce power, cost, size and time-to-market.
Since introducing CMIC technology, Silego has developed five generations of CMIC silicon and design tools for smartphones, tablets, wearables and IoT-enabled projects.
Lynn Torrel, senior vice president, semiconductor business development, worldwide for Avnet said: “Silego’s CMIC GreenPAK platform and integrated power switch (IPS) portfolio, provide
designers with new levels of configurability, power and performance that can significantly accelerate and optimise 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.”
John Teegen, CEO, Silego said: “Silego not only created the world’s first family of configurable mixed-signal ICs, but also enabled a paradigm shift for designers.” He added, “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.”
Commenting on the agreement, Semico Research principal analyst for application specific integrated circuits (ASICs) and system on chip (SoC), Rich Wawrzyniak, said “A global partnership with Avnet will provide the many benefits of CMICs to the market at large.”
