Hello from CES!

QuickLogic is demonstrating some of our many customer’ products here at the 2018 Consumer Electronics Show (CES) in Las Vegas. In particular, we are showcasing designs from a number of our customers who have chosen our EOS™ S3 sensor processing platform for hearable, wearable and IoT applications. This year, you will notice we have an especially large number of hearable design wins reflecting the “voice is the new touch” trend we have been sharing over the past quarters.

There is one EOS S3 platform voice-based design win being shown by a customer that we would especially like to highlight. It is from a company called “Cleer, Inc.” for a product they call the Edge Voice headphone. This product allows customers using it to connect to Amazon’s Alexa voice services via Bluetooth technology to make calls, stream audio, order products, or check schedules and set reminders. As a bonus feature, it also includes built-in heart-rate monitoring. The product is so advanced it won a CES Innovation award.

  1. Hi Brian, what I nice showing. The cordless Bluetooth speaker with Alexa, how cool. Now that you had physical products to show your customers at CES, how did that effect your close rate for new customers at the show. How do you believe it will effect your close rate in the coming weeks to months?
