Sunnyvale, CA – April 9, 2015 – QuickLogic Corporation (NASDAQ: QUIK), the innovator of ultra-low power programmable sensor hubs, today announced the addition of the ArcticLink® 3 S2 LP to its family of ultra-low power programmable sensor hubs. At just 75uWatts (68uA @ 1.1V) active power consumption, this new platform is the lowest power programmable sensor hub on the market. Together with QuickLogic’s extensive SenseMe™ algorithm library and reference designs, the ArcticLink 3 S2 LP enables designers to add more features and capabilities and greatly extend the battery life of smartphone and wearable devices.
The ArcticLink 3 S2 LP reduces the power requirements on the host system by almost 50% as compared to the standard S2, and consumes significantly less power than competing MCU-based sensor hub solutions. This translates directly to an improved user experience due to longer battery life and more time between recharging for smartphones and wearables. The device supports QuickLogic’s extensive library of SenseMe sensor algorithms as well as OEM-developed and third-party algorithms, which enables the addition of many more features and capabilities to consumer devices.
“We’ve taken the lowest power programmable sensor hub in the industry, the ArcticLink 3 S2, and reduced its power consumption even further while maintaining pin-compatibility,” said Paul Karazuba, director of marketing and media at QuickLogic Corporation. “Coupled with our extensive library of SenseMe algorithms, QuickLogic empowers OEMs to create feature-rich, sensor-based devices with outstanding battery life.”
