Our founders were instrumental in creating one of the first smartphone platforms in 1999. This technology demonstrator for Orange was the first device to combine the functions of a high end PDA with a mobile phone; providing full duplex video conferencing, mobile internet browsing and email.
Inspired by this project, Steve Barlow, Argon Design's CTO, co-founded Alphamosaic in 2000, developing three generations of multi-media co-processors which were used in a range of mobile products by Samsung, Nokia and Apple. The key to the success of the Alphamosaic products was optimising the partitioning of the hardware and software functions to provide both low power and high performance.
Argon Design continues this tradition, recognising that the correct partitioning of a system's architecture is essential to achieve optimum performance, power, cost and functionality.
We have an impressive track record in the development of handheld and mobile products, with recent projects extending our software experience still further to include Android (operating system porting, drivers and applications) and Apple iOS (applications and ‘under the hood’ performance analysis).
