Programmable connectivity platform for embedded systems processors
QuickLogic announces it is now shipping the ArcticLink programmable connectivity platform for embedded systems processors targeting the handheld electronics product market. It reduces design time and risk for the mobile market by embedding high performance host controllers, a programmable fabric for implementing additional controllers and peripheral connectivity, as well as a selectable processor interface - all in a single, low power device.The
ArcticLink is representative of QuickLogic's Customer Specific Standard Product (CSSP) philosophy, which combines application-specific hard-wired logic with a low-power programmable fabric for implementing additional, customer-specific functionality. This CSSP technology offers mobile product OEMs and ODMs a unique combination of integration, flexibility, small form factor packaging and low cost.
Reinforcing the market need for such technology, ArcticLink has already been adopted by a major mobile device OEM; that customer is now receiving shipments with the on-board programmable fabric customized by QuickLogic to meet application requirements.
