SUNNYVALE, CA--(Marketwired - Aug 4, 2014) - QuickLogic Corporation (NASDAQ: QUIK)

  • PolarPro II-based Solution enables inter-processor communication at reduced Bill of Material (BOM) cost and PCB area

QuickLogic Corporation (NASDAQ: QUIK), the innovator of ultra-low-power programmable Customer Specific Standard Products (CSSPs), today announced that its PolarPro® II-based CSSP has been chosen by Japan Radio Company, Ltd. (JRC) to enhance the connectivity capabilities of its next-generation Personal Handy-Phone System (PHS). The QuickLogic solution was chosen for its ability to support inter-processor communication between the PHS baseband processor and the host processor, as well as the integration of a watchdog timer, Pulse Width Modulator (PWM) and keyscan controls.

The CSSP enables JRC to quickly and seamlessly integrate these critical connectivity requirements, save PCB board space and reduce the BOM cost of the phone. QuickLogic's CSSP platform approach reduces the company's overall development time, enabling a fast time-to-market and providing hardware differentiated features. 

"QuickLogic's PolarPro II was an easy choice for us because it meets all of the interconnect and system logic requirements of our newest Personal Handy-Phone System," said Yoichi Hijikata, Assistant General Manager of Japan Radio Company, Ltd. "Additionally, their strong engineering team delivered a solution that met our technical expectations within our aggressive development window."

"We continue to enable new features through our fully programmable and flexible PolarPro II solution," said Paul Karazuba, senior product marketing and media manager at QuickLogic. "The PolarPro II CSSP platform family's unique ability to provide multiple independent functions in a single device at low power allows OEMs to conserve precious board space, BOM cost and battery life, while expanding user functionality."

The new JRC PHS phone is now available in Japan. For more information on other CSSP solutions, please contact QuickLogic at
