Thanks to our friends over at picopros.com for the brief, but very kind article on our technology. http://www.picopros.com/article/pico-projectors-bolster-future-growth-quicklogic-according-bloomberg We appreciate their support of QuickLogic, and definitely agree with their assessment of how VEE and BCC can add to the user experience with pico projectors. Also, a gentle reminder of other links where you can find […]
Tag: Pico Projector
Sorry for being late with this blog, especially for those interested and keeping track… We announced BCC, or Background Color Compensator, last week. This technology enables OEMs of pico projectors to design in an automatic compensation for other-than-white backgrounds. So the obvious question is: “Is this important?” We believe so, and here’s why: Standard projectors […]
How VEE Affects the Effective Lumens on Pico Projectors
Many people have asked us how exactly VEE works on Pico Projectors. A little more information is contained in the video below, also available on our YouTube channel. The shortened version: Brightness does not necessarily equal viewability Increased projector lumens means more power consumption, and in most cases a larger, more costly subsystem VEE uses […]
Video from the Latest D.T.F.
As promised, here’s video from the December DigiTimes technical forum from our Youtube channel: […]
Packing for C.E.S.
As today’s press release alluded to, we’ll again be at CES this year. As it mentioned, we’ll be demonstrating a few things VEE-related, as well as a good amount of connectivity-related items, including 3G datacards and CX reference designs (namely our Jupiter boards). There may even be something on pico’s… For those who are going […]
One More For the Road…
…so I may have been a bit premature when I said it was the last blog of 2011 in my last entry… Before the break, I wanted to quickly give our readers a summarized list of questions we’ve gotten regarding the ArcticLink III VX in the last month or so of press and investor interviews. […]
Size Matters: How We Shrunk the ArcticLink III VX
As the final blog before we (OK, I) settle down for a long winters nap, I wanted to mention a few items about the size of the ArcticLink III VX device. Yes, we’ve shrunk the device 44% from 6 x 6 mm to 4.5 x 4.5 mm. This is true for all 13 variants of […]
Pico’s: Why Our Dual Output ArcticLink III VX6 Matters
Whether in our earnings calls, or here on HotSpots, we’ve talked a lot about pico projectors in the last few months. Well…as much as we’ve only recently externally talked about them, they’ve been a hot topic internally here for quite some time. So much so, in fact, that we dedicated 2 of the 13 devices […]
VEE and DPO HD+; What’s Different and Improved
We’ve spent a lot of time in the past couple of days talking about generational improvements and interfaces, but the main selling features of the ArcticLink III VX will remain our Visual Enhancement Engine High Definition Plus (VEE HD+) and Display Power Optimizer High Definition Plus (DPO HD+). Those familiar with our products know the […]
So, Is the ArcticLink III VX Really a CSSP?
One of the questions I’ve been asked consistently since our first ArcticLink III VX press meeting is “is this really a CSSP? Isn’t it more of an ASSP?” In summary: Yes, this is a CSSP. Here’s why: Obviously there is no fabric on this chip. This certainly makes the silicon appear to be closer to […]
