SAN JOSE, Calif.Programmable logic vendor QuickLogic Corp. Tuesday (April 27) announced the verification of the company's Visual Enhancement Engine (VEE) and Display Power Optimizer (DPO) technology with OLED displays.
VEE technology enhances the viewability of OLED displays under challenging conditions such as low brightness modes or bright ambient light by dynamically optimizing video characteristics to provide a better user experience, according to QuickLogic (Sunnyvale, Calif.) Working in concert with VEE, QuickLogic's DPO technology allows for display brightness s to be lowered, consuming less power and extending battery life, according to the company.
OLED display technology represents a growing share of the smartphone market. According to Samsung Mobile Display, OLED screens could appear on 50 percent of all mobile phones within the next five years. In addition to smartphones, OLED displays are being increasingly adopted for other handheld mobile devices such as notebooks, smartbooks and tablets, according to QuickLogic.
QuickLogic said its proprietary VEE technology enhances image and video quality by optimizing the dynamic range, contrast and color saturation of content on the display on a pixel-by-pixel basis, making OLED displays more viewable and enhancing the consumer's mobile multimedia visual experience. DPO technology can reduce display power consumption through intelligent control of the display brightness, the company said.
VEE and DPO technology are currently available in QuickLogic's customer specific standard products built from the ArcticLink II VX solution platforms, the company said.
