Saelig Company, Inc. has introduced yet another unique product to the American marketplace. The newly-announced WOM0401 power management IC (PMIC) has the triple functions of a write-only memory, a black LED, and a music chip. Cleverly designed without any gold-bonded wires, the WOM0401 is fabricated using a very short circuit and can be used for a wide range of supply voltages, from the newer 0.8V logic levels up to 5kV, and offers extremely low power consumption and a write time of under 5 femtoseconds. Typical applications may include the power-factor-correction sections of dc-dc converters and other undefined functions. Made in Taiwan by a very small fabless IC house Teentsiesoft, Inc. WOM0401 comes in an unmarked ceramic 1005 package and will only be available today, April First.
Although write-only memories have been produced before, this patented device has internal 1024-bit encryption in its open source functionality. Though information can simply be dumped to a PC’s trash-bin, this device removes that extra mouse-click step, saving time and energy – resources in short supply on our planet. Saelig’s CEO Alan Lowne states: “At Saelig, we are constantly searching the world for unique electronic products for our engineering customers, and I’m glad we made this connection. I think we have found a right one here!”
"This is the ideal device for depositing sensitive information that must never be retrieved, such as company and personal data, passwords, and incriminating email evidence to be withheld from investigators and family members. This product should see widespread use in government projects and with Fortune 500 companies and those who are sensitive to NSA issues. The WOM0401 needs no programming or set-up, and comes preloaded with a bootstrap for personal use. It is certain to fill a gap in the IC world," Lowne continued.
Additionally, the Black LED feature allows simultaneous discreet non-illumination where places need to be kept in the dark, such as management meeting rooms, stock analyst arenas, White House briefings, new employee hiring situations, etc. Both of these functionalities can be used simultaneously, and at the same time as well. The product needs no sophisticated color-matching as it comes precalibrated to a black-body radiator, which was found in the manufacturer’s basement.
The third functionality of the WOM0401 is as a device dedicated to the performance of the world-famous composer John Cage. His piece called 4:33 requires the performer to sit in silence for exactly four minutes and thirty-three seconds. 4:33 (pronounced “Four minutes, thirty-three seconds” is a three-movement composition by the American experimental composer John Cage (1912-1992). Knowing how extremely difficult it is to obtain absolute silence for that length of time, Teentsiesoft proceeded to add this capability into the WOM0401 through a clever means of vacuum-based technology used in the manufacturing process. An external timer IC is required to complete the circuit for this application. A wide range of external amplifiers and speakers may be used with WOM0401 (see specifications for details).
