Back to News List

AUSTIN, TX – Cygnal Integrated Products, Inc., the Austin-based semiconductor company specializing in mixed signal flash microcontrollers, announces the achievement of selling over 10,000 Development Kits since the introduction of its first products in July 2000.

“Each development kit in the field represents a design seat for Cygnal microcontroller products,” said Don Alfano, Vice President of Marketing. “Cygnal has achieved a major milestone in establishing a broad user base for its products by exceeding 10,000 design seats, and looks forward to accelerating acceptance of its ever increasing array of products.”

This benchmark was reached sooner than originally anticipated, and the company will continue to promote development kit sales and assist designers in bringing their end products to market. “An installed base of development kits is a strong indicator of future revenue potential,” said Jeff Rosenberg, an analyst with William Blair & Co. “Historically, companies with similar products plan on each design seat generating thousands of dollars of product shipments within a few years.”

Each Cygnal Development Kit enables designers to fully develop and debug Cygnal microcontroller products in the end-application. Cygnal’s best-in-class products have built in circuitry that facilitates full-speed in-system debug features such as single-stepping, breakpoints, and modifying registers and memory. Development kit prices range from $99 to $459. Development kits and chips are available for purchase direct from Cygnal at
