A long-time QuickLogic follower posted the following question to the blog today:
There’s some PR floating around the internet regarding a new Saygus V2 Android based Smartphone that has won a prestigious CES innovation award. My question is regarding it’s reported use of an ArcticLink III from QuickLogic as a co-processor that “loads” contextual information. My understanding was (or is) that the ArcticLink 3 S2 is QUIKs ArcticLink III BX/VX visual enhancement product. Also, that the ArcticLink 3 S2 is QuickLogic’s Sensor Hub.
Can you provides some clarification for investors:
(1) Is QUIK providing one or more products for this new phone?
(2) Is one of those the ArcticLink 3 S2 Sensor Hub? If so, will the Saygus V2 Smartphone also be using QuickLogic’s new internally developed Sensor Algorithms to supply Context Aware information?
(3) Has the Saygus V2 Smartphone been referred to in either of QuickLogic’s last two quarterly prepared remarks, i.e. Q2-14 or Q3-14?
So, in response…
We can confirm that Saygus phone in question does use the ArcticLink III VX (display) product from QuickLogic. The article is incorrect in stating which product from QuickLogic is used — to be clear, this is a display product (only), and not a sensor hub. Finally, this design has not been referred in any of the 2014 prepared remarks.
