SUNNYVALE, CA--(Marketwired - Jan 5, 2017) - QuickLogic Corporation (NASDAQ: QUIK), a developer of ultra-low power programmable sensor processing SoCs, display bridges, FPGAs, and embedded FPGA IP, today announced that its ArcticLink® III VX platform has been chosen by Sanyo Techno Solutions Tottori for its extensive line of educational tablet products.
According to market research firm BI Intelligence, the tablet market exceeded 250 million units in 2015. Devices such as those from Sanyo have grown from 25% of the market in 2015 to 43% in 2016.
QuickLogic's ArcticLink III VX platform provides a display bridge from Sanyo's application processor to the LCD display used for the tablet.
