Dialog adds multi-channel input capability to Nanoamp GreenPAK device

Dialog Semiconductor has expanded its GreenPAK solution suite with the SLG46811, said to be the market’s smallest GreenPAK device to include an I2C communication interface.

The GreenPAK products are intended to be extremely cost effective programmable mixed-signal ASICs that can be customer designed using GreenPAK Designer Software.

The GreenPAK product range feature sub uA active current consumption, nano second response times, schematic based design and simulation, and tools that allow prototyping and programming when connected to a standard PC USB port. These products have been widely adopted with hundreds of millions of units shipped annually to many IoT, computing and industrial OEM’s.

The SLG46811 integrates traditional GreenPAK programmable logic with new shift register macrocells, a multichannel sampling analogue comparator and a 92 x 8-bit pattern generator, all within a small 1.6mm x 1.6mm package.

The SLG46811 GreenPAK IC eliminates size constraints with the smallest I2C communication interface, with a multichannel sampling comparator capable of sampling four analogue signals. In addition, the shift register macrocells and 92-byte pattern generator allow engineers to take advantage of significant advancements with its nanoamp active current consumption, greater customisability and customer-defined control.

“The SLG46811 is a significant addition to our GreenPAK product family” said John McDonald, Vice President Marketing, CMBU at Dialog Semiconductor. “Current competitive solutions such as discrete logic and analogue ICs, Mixed Signal MCUs or small FPGAs are more expensive, have larger footprints, are highly complex, offer higher power consumption and longer latency.

"The SLG46811 includes all of these new and traditional features in its ultra-small form factor, achieving a very cost-effective solution improving not only traditional GreenPAK applications but extending GreenPAK products into new functions that allow engineers to create more complex and compact digital projects.”
