Avnet and Silego Technology have reached an exclusive global distribution-channel agreement that appoints Avnet as Silego’s sole global distributor. Effective immediately, Avnet will also become Silego’s sole demand-creation distributor in the Americas and Europe. The agreement is also expected to bolster Silego’s current regional-distributor network in Japan, Korea, Taiwan and China.
The agreement will add Silego’s configurable mixed-signal ICs (CMICs) to Avnet’s distribution offerings. Developed over five generations, the CMICs use nonvolatile memory to configure and integrate analog, digital logic, and power functions. With over 2.7 billion units sold to date, Silego’s CMICs, configuration software, and design tools reduce power, cost, size, and time-to-market for electronics that process various electrical signals.
“The phenomenal demand for devices like smartphones, tablets, wearables, and IoT-enabled solutions has compounded designers’ long-standing mandate for ‘smaller, faster, cheaper,’” says Lynn Torrel, Avnet’s senior vice president for semiconductor business development worldwide.
“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.”
