Programmable Logic Solutions for Mobile Devices

Ideal for low-power applications where long battery life is key

Mobile device system designers rely on programmable logic devices to supplement and increase the capabilities of their products through such functions as GPIO expansion, I²C control, and interface bridging. Applications for programmable logic continue to grow even as mobile processors evolve, supporting new standards and interfaces while continuing legacy design support. QuickLogic’s PolarPro® 3 programmable logic devices are designed to address the next generation needs of consumer mobile and mobile enterprise system 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.
