QuickLogic's ArcticLink 3 S2 Selected for Jiaxiang's Finowatch Wearable

SUNNYVALE, CA--(Marketwired - Mar 8, 2016) - QuickLogic Corporation (NASDAQ: QUIK), the innovator of ultra-low power programmable sensor processing solutions, announced today that Jiaxiang, a China-based Independent Design House (IDH), has chosen its ArcticLink® 3 S2 Sensor Hub and associated SenseMe™ Algorithms for its new Finowatch wearable. QuickLogic has started shipping the ArcticLink 3 S2 solution so that Jiaxiang can take advantage of its low power consumption, advanced activity tracking and gesture algorithm support. As a result, Jiaxiang is able to deliver a compelling solution in a short time frame.

The ArcticLink 3 S2 sensor processing platform uses substantially less power than traditional MCU-based sensor hubs. When coupled with QuickLogic's SenseMe algorithm library, companies can further optimize power consumption, shorten product development cycles and optimize end user experience. The SenseMe library includes a wide variety of activity tracking, context awareness and gesture sensing algorithms that are designed to optimize user experience. QuickLogic's design support tools facilitate easy integration with popular application processors like the MediaTek MT6572 used in the Finowatch.

"We are pleased that Jiaxiang implemented our sensor hub technology in their Finowatch device where ultra-low power consumption and time-to-market were the key considerations," said Brian Faith, VP of worldwide marketing. "We are seeing strong interest from Independent Design Houses, and look forward to opportunities to work with Jiaxiang on future designs."

"QuickLogic's sensor processing solution helped us shorten our development schedule and optimize battery life," said Deng Guo, VP of research and development at Jiaxiang. "We are particularly happy with QuickLogic's gesture recognition algorithm that instinctively activates the display on our Finowatch when users raise their hand and twist their wrist to read it."
