QuickLogic CSSPs Shipping In Option Wireless’ 14.4Mbps 3G USB Modems With MicroSD Support

QuickLogic Corporation (NASDAQ:QUIK), the lowest power programmable solutions leader, is proud to announce that its Customer Specific Standard Products ( CSSPs) are being adopted by Option® Wireless in a line of 3G Cat9 (10.1 Mbps) and Cat10 (14.4 Mbps) HSDPA USB modems for wireless communications over cellular networks. Option is a global leader in wireless technology, focused on the design, development and manufacture of innovative solutions that provide businesses and consumers with high-quality wireless broadband access to the Internet, anywhere, anytime.

Option's latest iCON505M series of 3G USB modems offer the ability to add up to 32 GB of micro SD memory to the modem to facilitate the sharing of downloaded content with Smartphones, Smartbooks, Netbooks, multimedia players and other consumer electronic devices, simplify the exchange of files between different PCs, or the transfer of images between digital cameras and a PC. Consumers are demanding these transfers be done in less time - a task that is becoming increasingly difficult with the large multimedia files being transferred or shared today. Option has adopted a QuickLogic® CSSP that addresses this unique consumer use case.

In industry standard (Note 1) performance benchmark tests, the Option® iCON505M modem with the QuickLogic CSSP achieved 16 MB/s read performance and 7.4 MB/s write performance when transferring files between a Notebook PC and a microSD memory card in the modem. A competitor's similar product (Note 2) without the QuickLogic CSSP was measured at less than 1 MB/s for both read and write performance.

“We are thrilled to hear the results of the QuickLogic benchmark test,” said Martin Croome, Option’s vice president of marketing. “This confirms Option’s strategy to use quality solutions, such as QuickLogic’s CSSPs, to deliver high performance 3G USB Modems. This is particularly important in view of Option’s strong strategic orientation toward value-added services and applications, such as uCAN Move. The uCAN Move application allows professionals and consumers to access their applications, content and personal internet connection with one click from any PC.”

“The CSSP design approach allows customers, such as Option, to deliver high performance 3G USB modems with innovative applications such as uCAN Move giving customers a great user experience as they quickly access their applications and exchange files beyond what can be achieved by using only standard products,” said Andrew J. Pease, QuickLogic’s president. “As with all of our CSSP engagements, the QuickLogic and Option engineering teams worked collaboratively during the architecture and development process to ensure best-in-class performance for their Cat9 and Cat10 USB modems.”

Note 1: The benchmarking software used was an information and diagnostic utility application by SiSoftware Sandra (the System ANalyser, Diagnostic and Reporting Assistant).

Note 2: The similar competitive 3G USB Modem used was the 02 E169 HSDPA product.
