Max, Thanks for sharing this. It seams like a very interesting device that could find a lot of uses. I will have to take a closer look at it.

These really are rather tasty for gathering "glue logic" and stuff together -- check out my blogs on the GPAK1 and 2 devices (linked to at the beginning of this blog) to get a better idea as to what thsi is all about.

Well, now I just have to have some of these and at a 10 part minimal order how can you go wrong!  Thanks Max for letting us know..

I agree -- that development board is also pretty cool (I think it was $59) -- you can drop one of these SMT chips into the carrier on the board and close the lid to bring it into contact with its pads -- then you can upload your design and appply real-world analog and digital stimulus (from the GUI on your PC) and verify your design works in a real-world part -- check out my original blogs (links at the top of this column) to learn more about this from when I was playing with the GPAK1 and GPAK2 devices.

Having the Dev board will be a major help!  I have a few projects that I want to get to but having these may just make them work awesome.  Thanks for the articles on these new devices.  Keep up the good work.

There is a nice example application posted on their web site that illustrates the power of the  GPAK2 device. Lots of functions in a small package.

I really do think these devices are very clever -- they've calved out a unique little niche and are happily selling hundreds of millions of units -- also they are really nice folks -- I hope they do really well.

Took me a second look to see Silicon Lego in their name. Very cute. Hope they can stay away from the lego legal legion...
