Qualcomm Debuts Snapdragon Processors for Cars

Qualcomm introduced an automotive-grade, Snapdragon infotainment chipset.

The Qualcomm Snapdragon 602A applications processor offers  quad-core Krait CPU,  Adreno 320 GPU, Hexagon DSP, integrated GNSS baseband processing and additional high-performance audio, video and communication cores. The device is designed to meet stringent automotive industry standards for temperature, quality, longevity and reliability and is AEC-Q100 compliant. IT is pre-integrated with Qualcomm Gobi 9x15 multimode 3G/4G-LTE and QCA6574 Qualcomm VIVE 2-stream, dual-band 802.11ac Wi-Fi and Bluetooth LE 4.0-based modules.

The Gobi 9x15, Qualcomm Technologies' second generation multimode 3G/4G LTE chipset, enables Internet connectivity for enhanced 3D navigation, cloud-based services and applications, multimedia streaming and downloads, as well as general web browsing. The chipset's multi-band support enables seamless connectivity between LTE TDD/FDD, CDMA 1x and 1xEV-DO, DC-HSPA+ and UMTS, TD-SCDMA and GSM/EDGE networks, as well as provides automakers with a proven, global platform to build and host their software and services.

In addition, Qualcomm  VIVE 2-stream, dual-band 802.11ac Wi-Fi and Bluetooth LE 4.0 solutions for in-car connectivity enables wireless hotspot functionality with support for up to eight simultaneous device connections, content streaming from the head unit to multiple devices with Miracast, MirrorLink 1.2 and AllJoyn. Also enabled is hands free telephony and vehicle-to-home content streaming through the Qualcomm 2x2 VIVE 2-stream 802.11ac Wi-Fi and Bluetooth LE 4.0 module with multiple antennas and advanced LTE/Wi-Fi/Bluetooth coexistence techniques that maintain reliable wireless connections in the harsh automotive environment.

"We are excited to bring to the car the same mobile technologies and Snapdragon experiences consumers around the world enjoy on their mobile devices," said Kanwalinder Singh, Senior Vice President of Business Development for Qualcomm Technologies, Inc. "Building on top of Gobi 3G connectivity already embedded in vehicles globally and Gobi 4G LTE connected cars being rolled out in 2014, the Snapdragon 602A will enable the next generation of connected infotainment in the car."
