(NASDAQ: QUIK) 


 
--  Drive on-board display and HDMI/MHL transmitters from a single
    Application Processor display signal
--  Includes display bridging functions for seamless connectivity of
    varying interfaces
--  Integrated VEE and DPO technologies allow for sunlight viewability
    & system-level power savings

  
QuickLogic Corporation (NASDAQ: QUIK), the innovator in low-power
Customer Specific Standard Products (CSSPs), announced today the
immediate availability of its new ArcticLink(R) III VX6 solution
platform device. This product integrates QuickLogic's Visual
Enhancement Engine (VEE) and Display Power Optimizer (DPO)
technologies along with LVDS, MIPI, and RGB interfaces into a single
chip bridging and connectivity solution for consumer mobile devices.
This enables developers to easily integrate a secondary HDMI and/or
MHL video output into systems initially designed to support a single,
on-board display. 
The VX6BxG is optimized for tablet architecture, offering system
designers a solution that bridges the MIPI output of the AP to an
LVDS interface for the on-board display, while outputting the same
display content to the RGB or MIPI interface of the MHL/HDMI
transmitter. This approach eliminates the need for inefficient,
multi-chip architectures or the need to upgrade to a more expensive
application processor which supports two simultaneous display
interfaces. 
"The ArcticLink III VX6 family from QuickLogic allows tablet system
designers to realize multi-display architectures with processors
originally intended to support only a single, on-board display. We
believe this flexibility in processor architecture selection can
speed time-to-market and keep BOM costs low for OEMs building
differentiated HDMI/MHL-enabled products," says Paul Karazuba, senior
product marketing manager at QuickLogic.  
The solution platform family also optionally integrates QuickLogic's
VEE and DPO technologies. Our VEE technology, based on the iridix(R)
core from Apical Limited, delivers outstanding display viewability
under any lighting condition by dynamically optimizing 
video
characteristics to provide a natural viewing experience. Our DPO
technology has been field-proven to lower total system power
consumption through dynamic management of display brightness with no
negative user side effects. Used together with VEE, QuickLogic's DPO
technology enables system-level battery life extension by an average
of 25% without compromising the user experience.
