QuickLogic Expands Its SenseMe Software Library for Smartphone and Wearable Applications

SUNNYVALE, CA--(Marketwired - Mar 10, 2015) - QuickLogic Corporation (NASDAQ: QUIK),

  • Significant new capability added to the broadening SenseMe Software Library

  • Optimized for QuickLogic's ArcticLink 3 S2 150uW programmable sensor hub platform

  • Algorithms provide industry-leading accuracy and power consumption efficiency with low latency

QuickLogic Corporation (NASDAQ: QUIK), the innovator of ultra-low power programmable sensor hubs, today announced the addition of several new algorithms to its SenseMe™ Sensor Algorithm Library. When coupled with QuickLogic's sensor hub silicon platforms and reference designs, the SenseMe algorithms enable designers of smartphone and wearable devices to expand the capabilities and features of their devices, dramatically shorten design time while lowering risk, and improve battery life and data accuracy.

QuickLogic's SenseMe algorithm library now includes new algorithms for low latency context determination of when the user is in a car or on a bicycle, and fitness/wellness tracking capabilities for on-demand Heart Rate Monitoring (HRM), advanced pedometer functions, and sleep analysis. The advanced pedometer provides step counting for slow cadence, normal walking, and fast walking as well as running; while the sleep analysis algorithm furnishes information on light sleep, deep sleep, and awake modes. OEMs that have benchmarked QuickLogic's pedometer against some of the leading products in the market today have deemed the pedometer to be consistently delivering 97%+ accuracy.

QuickLogic's SenseMe algorithms allow smartphone and wearable design teams to easily interpret data from a wide range of sensors including inertial, magnetic, biological, proximity and light sensors to determine the user's activity status and context.

Pedometer Advanced Steps with false step rejection, Distance, Speed, Calorie
Context Stationary, Walking, Running, Accidental Drop, Not On Person, On-Bike, Sleep Analysis, In-Car
Gesture Raise Hand, Twist Hand, Double Tap, Horizontal Angle
Wellness Heart Rate Monitor (on demand)
Other Multi-axis fusion, UV Light, Ambient Light, Proximity
Sensors Supported Accelerometer, Magnetometer, Gyroscope, Pressure, Proximity, Temperature, PPG Heart Rate Monitor, Humidity, Ambient Light Sensor, Ultraviolet (UV) Light Sensor
Operating Systems RTOS, Android 4.2 (Ice Cream Sandwich), 4.3 (Jellybean), 4.4 (KitKat), 5.0 (Lollipop), OS-less

The ArcticLink 3 S2 and SenseMe algorithms are fully compatible with the Android OS including KitKat 4.4, Lollipop 5.0, and RTOS-based systems. QuickLogic provides standard Android drivers to facilitate quick and seamless integration.

The ArcticLink 3 S2 platform can be easily customized to suit unique customer requirements through QuickLogic's Integrated Development Environment (IDE) and reference designs. Development of differentiated products can be quickly accomplished using the IDE for incorporation of QuickLogic's extensive software offerings, customer developed algorithms, third party algorithms or any combination of the three.

"The combination of QuickLogic's powerful algorithm suite and extremely efficient hardware provides a toolset for determination and analysis of current user activities," said Frank Shemansky, senior director of product management. "It also paves the way for eventual prediction of user intent and correlation of information never before possible with nearly limitless opportunities ranging from the interrelationship of biological system information to environmental predictions."
