Sensor Hub

Platform Features
ArcticLink 3 S1

The ArcticLink 3 S1 Ultra-Low Power Sensor Hub (ULPSH) is the first device to meet the power thresholds and support the sensor processing functions required to make always-on sensors in tablets a mainstream reality. 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 VX

The ArcticLink III VX Solution Platform family integrates Visual Enhancement Engine (VEE™) HD+, Display Power Optimizer (DPO) HD+ technologies with LVDS, MIPI and RGB interfaces including display bridging, interface pass through and dual output architectures into a single chip solution for consumer mobile devices. This highly integrated, yet flexible platform makes it the ideal solution for display subsystems of handheld portable devices.

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.

ArcticLink II VX

The first solution platform family optimized for display subsystem processing in handheld, battery powered devices. All solution platforms in this family embed a hardwired, 2.0 version of the Visual Enhancement Engine technology (VEE) PSB and our Display Power Optimizer (DPO) PSB. Furthermore, a variety of display interface PSBs can be embedded in the ArcticLink II VX solution platforms.


Platform Features
PolarPro® 3E

The PolarPro 3E is the latest generation of QuickLogic's mobile programmable logic devices. It improves upon previous generations by adding embedded standard blocks commonly used in mobile FPGA designs. Featuring 3,500 effective logic cells in an extremely small 2.19 mm x 2.47 mm package, the PolarPro 3E is ideal for low power applications where long battery life is key to a positive user experience.

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

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.
