Sunnyvale, Calif. –
- Ensures known-good-interface with inertial, photonic, environmental, and wellness sensors from popular manufacturers
- Compatibility ensures a quick design-in with proven device drivers
QuickLogic Corporation (NASDAQ: QUIK), the innovator of ultra-low power programmable Customer Specific Standard Products (CSSPs), today announced that it has implemented a formal Qualified Vendor List (QVL) program for sensor hub platforms. The initial QVL includes a variety of sensor models and types from AMS, Analog Devices, Bosch, InvenSense, Kionix, Murata, STMicroelectronics, and others.
The QVL program streamlines the design process for OEMs and empowers them with confidence in choosing sensors that have been pre-qualified by QuickLogic. This pre-qualification includes verifying communication and compatibility with all relevant blocks and functions within QuickLogic's sensor hub platforms. Since QuickLogic has already developed and tested device drivers and algorithms for each of the sensors, OEMs can expect their development and integration efforts to be fast, efficient and seamless. With this qualification, and QuickLogic's development platform, OEMs can also "fine tune" designs to optimize system level performance.
"With assurance of system-level compatibility, QuickLogic's QVL program allows OEMs to accelerate product development, lower costs and reduce risks," said Paul Karazuba, director of marketing and media at QuickLogic. "While we have already qualified a wide variety of sensors from the leading suppliers in the market today, we will continue to expand our QVL by adding new sensor models, types, and manufacturers."
QuickLogic's ArcticLink 3 S2 sensor hub platform provides OEMs with a complete solution that includes the programmable CSSP device, proven Android or RTOS software drivers, and sensor algorithms for user transport, activity, gesture, and context determination. OEMs can choose to use off-the-shelf catalog solutions or can fully customize the design with QuickLogic's Integrated Design Environment (IDE) tools. With QuickLogic's IDE tool, OEMs can easily incorporate internally-developed IP and algorithms to the ArcticLink 3 S2 sensor hub platform with confidence of maintaining forward compatibility to future roadmap devices.
The ArcticLink 3 S2 Sensor Hub platform and the initial QVL are available today. For more information, visit www.quicklogic.com/solutions/cssp/qvl
