The folks from QuickLogic, creators of low-power Customer Specific Standard Products (CSSPs), have just announced that their Display Power Optimizer (DPO) technology has been field-proven to lower total system power consumption by up to 36% in handheld consumer devices such as smartphones and tablets.  These power savings results in extending the battery life of these devices by the same percentage.

Used in conjunction with the DPO Proven System Block (PSB), QuickLogic’s Visual Enhancement Engine (VEE) technology greatly enhances the viewability of mobile device displays.  VEE optimizes video characteristics on a frame-by-frame, pixel-by-pixel basis to provide the user with a natural viewing experience, even under the most challenging viewing conditions.

As part of the product development process, QuickLogic customers integrate CSSPs containing VEE and DPO PSBs into their form-factor systems.  DPO technology is then calibrated to the specific parameters of the OEM system.  After calibration, system power consumption measurements have shown that DPO technology has decreased power consumption significantly in every system tested, regardless of display size or type of device.  The following table presents actual data reported from various OEM systems.

LONDON – Peraso Technologies Inc., a fabless chip company working on millimeter-wave radio transceiver technology, has raised C$8 million (about $7.9 million) in an equity financing round led by Celtic House Venture Partners.

Peraso (Toronto, Ontario), founded in early 2009 is developing transceivers for 60-GHz wireless multimedia links.
