SUNNYVALE, Calif., Jan. 8, 2018 /PRNewswire/ -- QuickLogic Corporation (QUIK), a developer of ultra-low power multi-core voice-enabled SoCs, embedded FPGA IP, display bridge and programmable logic solutions, today announced that GGEC, an engineering development and project management company, has selected the company's EOS™ S3 Sensor Processing Platform for its new voice-enabled Bluetooth sport earphone. GGEC chose the EOS S3 platform for its voice recognition capabilities, ultra-low power consumption, and the quality of QuickLogic's technical support.

The sport earphone is designed to work with the new Tencent DingDang cloud service which is an AI Assistant with Full Stack Technologies just now being introduced. It is also designed to support similar services from Douban and AVlight. GGEC design engineers leveraged the capabilities of the EOS S3, their own previous experience with the platform, and QuickLogic's software and IP support to deliver their product with only three months of development time.

"The GGEC design represents another exciting voice-activated application for the EOS S3 platform," said Brian Faith president and CEO of QuickLogic. "We have been saying for some time now that 'voice is the new touch' and this design is further proof that voice activation is rapidly replacing push buttons for a variety of consumer products."

"We are very pleased with the features, ease-of-use, and low power consumption of the EOS S3 platform for our voice-activated Bluetooth® sport earphone product" said Mav Zhao CEO of AVlight. "This device enabled us to provide the capabilities we needed for our product to interface with the Tencent DingDang cloud service and deliver the product very quickly" said Leo Cao senior sales manager of GGEC.
