QuickLogic is shipping engineering samples of its low power ArcticLink II VX2 solution platform. ArcticLink II VX2 is ideal for display path CSSPs for smartphones, multimedia phones, feature phones, mobile internet devices (MIDs), netbooks, smartbooks, mobile TV devices, and portable navigation devices (PNDs). CSSPs based on the ArcticLink II VX2 solution platform are sampling now, and are scheduled for full production availability in Q4, 2009.
The QuickLogic ArcticLink II VX2 solution platform features embedded 2nd generation Visual Enhancement Engine (VEE v2.0), Display Power Optimizer (DPO), optional frame buffer, and low power programmable fabric.
QuickLogic ArcticLink II CSSP Solution Platform Features
- The embedded VEE v2.0 provides a TV-quality visual experience. By leveraging pixel-by-pixel processing, VEE is effective in all lighting conditions, including direct sunlight.
- The embedded DPO intelligently drives the Pulse Width Modulator (PWM) circuitry of the backlights in TFT LCD displays – reducing display power consumption by up to 80%.
- Up to 32 Mbits of embedded frame buffer using very low power cellularRAM technology supports up to WSVGA resolution (1024×600) and 24-bit color depth, allowing the mobile processor to be kept in sleep mode while refreshing mobile displays at 60+ frames per second.
- The programmable fabric supports a diverse suite of fully tested Proven System Blocks (PSBs) and customer specific peripheral connectivity. This provides CSSP customers with faster time-to-market, greater flexibility during market cycles, the lowest possible system power consumption and lower BOM costs.
