Optimum Semiconductor processors such as the SB3500® series are powered by Sandblaster® DSP, an indigenously developed digital signal processor by Optimum Semiconductor . It is this key Sandblaster® DSP technology that drives the flexible alternative to traditional dedicated baseband hardware. With this core technology Optimum Semiconductor has addressed one of the biggest challenges in the mobile semiconductor market by providing a highly programmable, high performance, low power chip for mobile devices.
In addition to the Sandblaster® DSP and the Instruction Set Architecture (ISA) innovation, a tightly coupled Sandblaster® IDE provides the industry’s ONLY DSP development flow which is capable of producing production-ready executable software based on high level language ("C") programming.
For these key innovations Optimum Semiconductor has 50+ unique submitted patents, of which 25+ US patents have been granted. Numerous foreign patents have also been issued. In total, when issued worldwide, Optimum Semiconductor will have a patent portfolio of more than 360+ patents.
