Is Silicon Laboratories under- or over-valued?

That's relatively high compared to, say, the trailing 12-month P/E ratio for the NASDAQ 100 at the end of 2019 (27.29). The high P/E ratio could mean that investors are optimistic about the outlook for the shares or simply that they're over-valued.
Silicon Laboratories's PEG ratio

Shorting Silicon Laboratories shares
There are currently 1.5 million Silicon Laboratories shares held short by investors – that's known as Silicon Laboratories's "short interest". This figure is 5.1% down from 1.5 million last month.
There are a few different ways that this level of interest in shorting Silicon Laboratories shares can be evaluated.
Silicon Laboratories's "short interest ratio" (SIR)
Silicon Laboratories's "short interest ratio" (SIR) is the quantity of Silicon Laboratories shares currently shorted divided by the average quantity of Silicon Laboratories shares traded daily (recently around 302657.40740741). Silicon Laboratories's SIR currently stands at 4.86. In other words for every 100,000 Silicon Laboratories shares traded daily on the market, roughly 4860 shares are currently held short.
However Silicon Laboratories's short interest can also be evaluated against the total number of Silicon Laboratories shares, or, against the total number of tradable Silicon Laboratories shares (the shares that aren't held by "insiders" or major long-term shareholders – also known as the "float"). In this case Silicon Laboratories's short interest could be expressed as 0.03% of the outstanding shares (for every 100,000 Silicon Laboratories shares in existence, roughly 30 shares are currently held short) or 0.0335% of the tradable shares (for every 100,000 tradable Silicon Laboratories shares, roughly 34 shares are currently held short).
Such a low SIR usually points to an optimistic outlook for the share price, with fewer people currently willing to bet against Silicon Laboratories.
