Quite interesting, but probably only for high volumes ( MOQ for programmed parts is 3K ).
But I couldn't really see much that couldn't be done with a low-end PIC, with much more flexibility and lower MOQ, at only a slightly higher device cost.

Well that's a shame, I believe before Silego got acquired by Dialog the MOQ for pre-programmed was far lower. There was a recent thead on alternatives to pre-programming them.

If you're not using the analog features or the simplest models that's probably true.

There are some reprogrammable devices that can be programmed over I2C, so those would be fairly viable to use in low volumes, but apparently the OTP devices use a lot of pins for programming.
