I/O Platform Advances Mobile Applications

Embarking as the company's next-generation customer specific standard product (CSSP) platform, the PolarPro II offers a compact, optimized I/O structure, increased responsiveness for its Very Low Power (VLP) mode, and greater embedded SRAM configurability. Addressing the system logic requirements of portable and mobile applications, it offers a wide range of I/O interfaces and a library of system blocks for its configurable fabric. The I/O section now offers eight independently powered banks to ease integration into multi-voltage systems, eliminating the need for level-shifting circuitry. Advancing the platform's power management scheme, core voltage can now scale as low as 1.5V to reduce dynamic power consumption. The platform also offers a VLP mode that freezes device operation, during which static current drops to less than 5 mA. Entries and exits from VLP mode are as fast as 10 ms. The first platform in the PolarPro II family will begin sampling in April. QUICKLOGIC CORP., Sunnyvale, CA. (408) 990-4000.
