QuickLogic Adds New Smartphone and Wearable Algorithms to Its SenseMe Software Library

SUNNYVALE, CA -- (Marketwired) -- Mar 25, 2015 --

QuickLogic Corporation (NASDAQ: QUIK), the innovator of ultra-low power programmable sensor hubs, today announced the addition of two new algorithms and an expanded algorithm to its rapidly growing SenseMe™ Sensor Algorithm Library. This library represents an exceptional set of algorithms designed to support QuickLogic's ArcticLink® 3 S2 ultra-low power sensor hub silicon platform which enables rapid development of advanced transportation, health and wellness, fitness, and other user-level applications for mobile and wearable devices.

The two new user context algorithms are "In Car" which allows devices to detect when a user is in a car, and "Elevation change" which allows devices to detect when a user is moving to higher or lower ground, such as on stairs or hills. In addition, QuickLogic has enhanced its pedometer algorithm with a new, more advanced feature set that calculates the user's speed, distance traveled, and calories burned. For more details, please see the table below.

Algorithm          Applications              User Benefits                  
In Car             -- User Experience        -- Power down of wireless      
                   -- Navigation             components such as Wi-Fi to    
                   -- Intelligent Power      save power                     
                   Management                -- Can enable car applications 
                                             on phone, such as GPS          
                                             navigation and music player    
                                             -- Car context can be used to  
                                             temporarily disable programs   
                                             such as fitness to save power  
Elevation Change   -- Health and Wellness    -- Caloric impact of elevation 
                   -- Fitness                changes in health and wellness 
                   -- Indoor Navigation      programs can be counted        
                                             -- Indoor navigation requires  
                                             building floor data -          
                                             'elevation change' enables     
                                             applications to understand the 
                                             user's movement between floors 
Advanced Pedometer -- Health and wellness    -- A basic step counter is the 
                   -- Fitness                'ground floor' of determining  
                   -- Indoor navigation      the users fitness level        
                                             -- A differentiation of walking
                                             and running can provide a more 
                                             accurate fitness level when    
                                             caloric burn is calculated     

"With the addition of these new contexts in the SenseMe 2.4.5 release, QuickLogic is enabling new sets of user-level applications," said Paul Karazuba, director of marketing and media at QuickLogic. "We continue to expand and improve our algorithm library, ensuring that our customers have access to a broad and growing set of sensor-based features and capabilities."

The new algorithms are available immediately. For more information, please visit http://www.quicklogic.com/technologies/sensor-algorithms/senseme/
