Solutions for the Exploding Wearable Market

Wearable-specific Sensor Hubs, Sensor Data Buffering and Interface Compatibility Solutions

Wearable OEMs require ultra-low power sensor hubs offload sensor management and sensor data storage burdens from the host processor in the most power-efficient manners possible to preserve battery life. Additionally, they often face issues with component compatibility in this exploding market – programmable fabric can be employed to bridge interfaces at a bare minimum of power consumption.


QuickLogic's provides a number of technologies and platforms which can be employed to speed time-to-market, expand features, and extend battery life.

Available as a Catalog CSSP featuring Sensor Platform Inc's FreeMotion library or as a fully OEM-configurable CSSP, the ArcticLink 3 S1 sensor hub is the best choice for power-conscious system designers.

Visual and Display

Platform Features
ArcticLink III BX

The ArcticLink III BX solution platform features a variety of display bridging technologies useful for smartphones, tablet computers and other handheld devices where the processor/CPU interface differs from that of the display interface. Featuring 15 silicon variants differing in input and output interface as well as maximum resolution supported, the ArcticLink III BX bridging solution is ideal for applications where low power and small size is key to success.


Platform Features
PolarPro® 3

QuickLogic’s PolarPro 3 programmable logic devices are designed to address the next generation needs of mobile designers. Featuring 1,019 logic cells in an extremely small 2 x 2.5mm package, the PolarPro 3 operates on as little as 55µA static power, making it ideal for low power applications where long battery life is key to a positive user experience. Available as a Sensor Data Buffer Catalog CSSP, the PolarPro 3 is a low-power sensor buffer and connectivity solution.

PolarPro and PolarPro II

The PolarPro and PolarPro II solution platforms offer a spectrum of PSBs such as SDIO/SD/MMC, high speed UARTs, keyboard control, SPI and I²C ports, advanced clock management and others in low cost, small form factor packaging.
