QuickLogic's ArcticLink II VX2, VX4 and MDDO Software Support Android 3.0

SUNNYVALE, CA--(Marketwire - Jul 19, 2011) - QuickLogic Corporation (NASDAQ: QUIK), the leader in low power Customer Specific Standard Products (CSSPs), is proud to announce that its ArcticLink® II VX2 and VX4 semiconductor platforms and MDDO (Mobile Device Display Optimizer) software have been field-proven to support the Android 3.0 mobile operating system.

Android 3.0, also known as Honeycomb, is the OS (Operating System) of choice for the growing majority of tablet OEMs. Mobile designers at leading OEMs have confirmed that QuickLogic's ArcticLink II VX2 and VX4 solution platforms containing QuickLogic's VEE (Visual Enhancement Engine) and DPO (Display Power Optimizer) technologies, including all required drivers and software, are Android 3.0 OS-compatible.

QuickLogic's VEE technology, based on the iridix® core from Apical Limited, greatly enhances the viewability of LCD and OLED displays under challenging lighting conditions such as bright ambient light by dynamically optimizing video characteristics to provide a natural viewing experience based on the human visual system. Used together with VEE, QuickLogic's DPO technology enables system-level battery life extension by an average of 25% without compromising the user experience.

QuickLogic's MDDO software allows the QuickLogic CSSP to communicate directly with the host system through standard Android APIs to collect system data, such as ambient light and display backlight levels, which is essential for the proper operation of the VEE and DPO technologies. QuickLogic's MDDO software removes the challenge of designing and verifying these communication paths from the system designer resulting in substantial development time and cost savings.

"Android 3.0 support is critical to success in the tablet market," said Paul Karazuba, senior product marketing manager for QuickLogic. "Confirmation that our solution offering, from our VX silicon platforms to our drivers and software, has been field-tested and is Android compatible, demonstrates our commitment to this market and to our customers."
