QuickLogic Corp. has released an evaluation module of its Visual Enhancement Engine (VEE) technology to allow OEMs and ODMs to test its benefits. The module comes with both pre-configured mobile processor and Liquid Crystal Display (LCD) interfaces that enable easy insertion into a mobile phone.

"We developed this evaluation module so our customers could see VEE in action while not spending precious time and R&D dollars to build prototype systems," said Howard Li, Senior Solution Marketing Manager for QuickLogic. Delivered as a pre-configured Customer Specific Standard Product (CSSP), the module is designed to fit seamlessly between the LCD and the main PCB.

The VEE technology provides image enhancement and battery life savings to mobile phones. It aims to provide TV-quality viewing experience by enhancing image/video data in real time. VEE's enhancements are context sensitive and adapts pixel by pixel. The technology allows lighting modification, giving developers the option to increase backlight intensity level for daytime viewing.

The VEE evaluation module includes an ambient light sensor to test the technology's ambient lighting response and control of the VEE image-processing algorithm. It also includes a Flash ROM to hold the VEE parameters that configure the CSSP for the specific LCD that it is connected to and an on-board switching regulator ensuring that the module can run off the mobile device's battery, regardless of operating voltage.
