QuickLogic has announced it is now shipping its revolutionary ArcticLink solution platform. This platform 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 solution platform meets the need for mobile devices to integrate a wide variety of wireless, storage and image/video technology by providing designers solutions including USB 2.0 High Speed OTG, SD/MMC memory, High Speed SDIO for Wi-Fi and Mobile TV, CE-ATA and IDE Hard Disk Drive, and a vast library of other production-proven solutions.
The ArcticLink solution platform 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 this technology, the ArcticLink solution platform has already been adopted by a major mobile device OEM; that customer is now receiving shipments of the ArcticLink solution platform, with the on-board programmable fabric customized by QuickLogic to meet the exact requirements of the OEM.
For designers wishing to explore ArcticLink's capabilities, engineering samples of the ArcticLink solution platform in an 8×8 mm package are now available from QuickLogic.
