QuickLogic Receives First High Volume Production Order From Pantech for Tablet Phone

SUNNYVALE, CA--(Marketwire - Jul 26, 2011) - QuickLogic Corporation (NASDAQ: QUIK)

  • Visual Enhancement Engine (VEE) technology brings exceptional image quality to the 5-inch WVGA screen
  • Display Power Optimizer (DPO) technology works in concert with VEE to extend system battery life an average of 25%

QuickLogic Corporation (NASDAQ: QUIK), the leader in low power Customer Specific Standard Products (CSSPs), is proud to announce the receipt of the first volume production order for VEE and DPO technologies for the new Pantech Tablet Phone dual-core Snapdragon smartphone which has been released this month in South Korea.

VEE allows Tablet Phone users a great viewing experience with the WVGA resolution, 5-inch LCD display in all viewing conditions, in contrast to other smartphones whose viewability "washes out" in challenging ambient light situations. DPO technology enables Pantech to provide Tablet Phone users a product with a greatly extended single-charge battery life, which is especially important on a smartphone that features typically higher-power consuming items such as a 5" display and 1.5GHz dual-core processor.

"OEMs and ODMs focused on improving the user experience are constantly looking for solutions to improve outdoor display visibility and extended battery life," said Brian Faith, VP of worldwide sales and marketing for QuickLogic. "We are very excited to announce our first smartphone production win with VEE and DPO alongside Pantech, and look forward to many more in the future."

QuickLogic's VEE and DPO technologies are available today as part of the ArcticLink® II VX2 and VX4 platforms. Contact QuickLogic or visit our website at for more information on all of the technologies mentioned.

About VEE and DPO
