Austin, TX - October 21, 2020 – Silicon Labs
(NASDAQ: SLAB), a leading provider of silicon, software and solutions, today announced
a new high reliability (HiRel) isolation partnership with
Teledyne e2v HiRel, a leading provider of high-performance, high-reliability
semiconductors to the aerospace and defense market. Under the new agreement, Teledyne
will offer a new specialized line of high reliability products based on Silicon
Labs' isolated gate driver technology optimized for space, aerospace, military and
oil and gas markets.
Teledyne e2v HiRel will market custom high reliability solutions based on Silicon
Labs' Si827x isolated gate driver family that are optimized for space, aerospace,
military, oil and gas and other markets requiring advanced technology and high reliability.
The Teledyne gate drivers based on the Si827x family will be screened and qualified
by Teledyne accordingly for specific market specifications, with an initial focus
on satellite power systems supporting satellite communications.
"The combination of Silicon Labs' industry leading isolation with Teledyne's
expertise in space and aerospace will give high reliability customers a new level
of performance in their complex systems," said Brian Mirkin, Vice President and
General Manager of Power Products at Silicon Labs. "Our proprietary silicon isolation
technology is ideal for specialized markets such as aerospace that require high
performance noise immunity, and flexible driver configurations to successfully manage
high-speed switching requirements."
The new Teledyne family based on Silicon Labs gate drivers are ideal for GaN
applications due to their faster switches rates and provide options for either a
single driver or a combination of two 4 A isolated drivers in a single IC package
for isolated gate drive applications. The product offers high-performance noise
immunity, eliminating the risk posed by faster switching speeds. The high noise
transients generated by the faster switching do not affect signal integrity through
the driver, removing the risk of incorrect switching or latch-up.
"We anticipate a great deal of demand from our customer base with this new level
of isolation reliability excellence we are able to offer," said Mont Taylor, Teledyne
e2v HiRel Vice President of Business Development. "Our HiRel customers are seeking
robust power solutions and we are confident this new partnership with Silicon Labs
will deliver a new caliber of isolated gate drivers that will help space, aerospace,
oil and gas and military companies enhance and strengthen their system designs."
The custom Teledyne solutions based on the Silicon Labs Si827x product family
will be made available in Q4 of 2020. The new devices are ideally suited to compliment
Teledyne's new family of HiRel GaN HEMTs, the TDG650 family. The applicable Teledyne
TDGD274DEP (Si8274GB1-IS1), and
