Qualcomm Adds LTE modes to Snapdragon Automotive Set

Qualcomm has added two LTE modems to its Snapdragon Automotive Solutions portfolio.

The Snapdragon X12 LTE modem (9x40) is designed to enable auto manufacturers to develop next-generation systems with advanced telematics and connected infotainment features while supporting greater coverage at download speeds up to Category 10 (up to 450 Mbps in the downlink and 100 Mbps in the uplink). The Snapdragon X5 LTE modem (9x28) is designed to enable automakers to broadly deploy LTE in all cars at download speeds up to Category 4 (up to 150 Mbps in the downlink and 50 Mbps in the uplink).

In addition to LTE, both modems support all major 3G/2G cellular standards and offer on-chip integration of global position (GNSS) support for all major constellation.  They also feature a 1 GHz processor with Linux and built-in software for key global regulatory mandates like EU eCall and ERA Glonass. They can be matched with a companion Qualcomm VIVE QCA65x4 chipset with Wi-Fi/BT to support consumer features like Wi-Fi 802.11ac hotspots and safety applications like vehicle-to-vehicle (V2V) and vehicle-to-infrastructure (V2I) with a seamless combination of Wi-Fi, DSRC and LTE.

“The effect of LTE on connected telematics and infotainment inside the car is transformational, rivaling the one from feature phones to smartphones,” added Singh. “Ubiquitous connectivity to cars is enabling industries like automotive, wireless operators, and insurance to come together in unlocking value for consumers. In addition, the cars of tomorrow will not only inform and entertain the consumer, but also communicate with their environment to make driving safer, which is accomplished through system level integration across infotainment, telematics and connectivity subsystems of the vehicle. The X12 and X5 are designed with this integration as a requirement, so we can support the vision of getting these capabilities into all cars.”
