QuickLogic`s (www.quicklogic.com) ArcticLink® II VX2 CSSP solution platform with the integrated Display Power Optimizer (DPO) and the second generation Visual Enhancement Engine (VEE) Proven System Blocks (PSBs) offers mobile device designers and manufacturers the integration and flexibility necessary to accelerate time-to-market and create differentiation in the mobile market.
The ArcticLink II VX2 Solution Platform includes VEE and DPO PSBs, featuring RGB input/output interfaces and is controlled through an I2C-like interface. VEE 2.0 technology greatly enhances the viewability of displays up to WXGA resolution (1366 x 768) under challenging conditions, such as bright ambient lighting, while dynamically optimizing video characteristics on a pixel-by-pixel, frame-by-frame basis to produce a natural viewing experience to the user.
Used in conjunction with VEE, QuickLogic`s DPO technology enables consumer device developers to reduce system battery consumption by as much as 25% through lowering display backlight or power intensity without compromising the viewing experience.
The customer-specific programmable fabric portion of the chip can include multiple PSBs. These PSBs include High Speed UARTs for Bluetooth, Pulse Width Modulators for driving general purpose and backlight LEDs, SPI and I2C host, display-specific needs such as RGB-split and Frame Recycler, or memory management needs for SD cards, eMMC devices, or other memory form factors.
A complete list of PSBs can be found at http://www.quicklogic.com/cssp-solution-proven-system-blocks. The variety of PSBs offered by QuickLogic allows system integrators to combine multiple discrete chips onto a single CSSP, simplifying design and board layout, lowering BOM cost, and accelerating time-to-market.
CSSPs provide a unique combination of hard logic and ultra-low power programmable fabric based on QuickLogic`s patented ViaLink® technology. This combination allows customers to quickly integrate CSSPs as market conditions change, resulting in faster time-to-market and integration of the latest technologies to address ever-changing market trends. QuickLogic`s VX2 Solution Platform is designed for consumer device applications such as smartphones, tablets, netbooks, and smartbooks.
