The ArcticLink® II VX4C solution platform integrates two main Proven System Blocks (2nd generation Visual Enhancement Engine (VEE™) technology, Display Power Optimizer (DPO) and MDDI v1.2 Type 2 Client with PHY) coupled with CellularRAM Frame Buffer and Programmable Fabric. This highly integrated, yet flexible architecture makes it the ideal platform to implement Customer Specific Standard Product (CSSP) solutions in the display and connectivity subsystems of Smartphones, Smartbooks, Tablets, Mobile Computing Devices (MCDs) and Pocketable Computing Devices (PCDs) using Qualcomm’s latest Mobile Station Modem (MSM™) MSM7xxx-series and QSD8xxx-series mobile processors, including the recently announced Snapdragon family.
Note the smoother, more fluid-like motion of the balls and the quarter-circle shape with the higher frame rate enabled by QuickLogic (on the left), compared with the choppy movements of the same images with the half frame rate without QuickLogic (on the right).
The ArcticLink II VX4C solution platform can be used to replace several discrete components typically used in mobile devices today, reducing power consumption and BOM cost, saving precious PCB space, and reduce the size of cables and connectors used in hinged form factor products such as clamshell, swivel, and slider . The onboard programmable fabric enables an almost endless combination of interface standards and functionality to enable extremely efficient and future-proof system design. QuickLogic’s System Solutions Group (SSG) provides the Proven System Blocks (PSBs), software drivers, documentation, reference schematics and support to help accelerate OEM and ODM time-to-market with CSSPs based on the ArcticLink II VX4C solution platform.
The ArcticLink II VX4C has a very high performance MDDI Type 2 Client that has been system-proven with Qualcomm's MSM7x30 and QSD8x50 chipsets running Google Android at 60 frame per second (60 fps) content refresh. Refreshing content at 60 fps is a critical requirement for ensuring a smooth, fluid-like user's viewing experience for mobile applications.
