May 16, 2012 - BUSINESS WIRE -- Mixed-signal IC maker Silicon Laboratories Inc. (NASDAQ:SLAB) introduced a microcontroller (MCU) die sales program with a minimum order quantity of 1 wafer.
The program is available for the company’s 8-bit 8051-based mixed-signal MCUs and new 32-bit Precision32 product family based on the ARM Cortex-M3 core.
Die are probe-tested on the wafer using a mixed-signal test methodology. All wafers are tested to the same levels as packaged MCU products. Purchasers can request factory programming of unpackaged die.
Customers purchasing bare-die MCUs can optimize package form factor for space-constrained system-level designs, and to implement their own custom packaging in module applications, said Mike Salas, VP and GM of Silicon Labs’ microcontroller products.
Silicon Laboratories makes high-performance, analog-intensive, mixed-signal ICs. For more information about Silicon Labs, please visit www.silabs.com.
