By default, today's date is populated in this field. When the certification is complete and a certification number is issued by Silicon Laboratories, the product information will be published to the Catalog of Certified Products.
If you wish to coordinate the product being shown in the catalog with a product release date, please click on the box and choose a different date in the future. The product will be made visible when A) it has completed the certification process and B) the date you choose has been reached or passed.
Note: The "New Product" highlight at the product catalog is based upon the product certification date, not the publication date; therefore, choosing a future date after the certification has been completed could result in little or perhaps no time that the product will be highlighted as a "New Product".
