All products and software are connected to a unifying connectivity fabric that will be expected around the world.How We Pioneer 5G
Our Snapdragon mobile platform and processors are a highly integrated, mobile-optimized system on a chip that provides advanced application, graphics and AI processing capabilities.
The Snapdragon heterogeneous compute architecture is designed to ensure that the CPU, DSP and GPU work efficiently together by being utilized only when needed. This enhances processing capacity, speed and efficiency, as well as the battery life of devices using our platforms and processors.
Our CPU cores, which are designed to deliver high levels of compute performance at low power, allow manufacturers to design powerful, slim and power-efficient devices.
Our platform and processor are designed to utilize the CPU, DSP and GPU only when needed, ensuring an efficient system.
Our latest 2nd generation Snapdragon X55 5G Modem is designed to deliver breakthrough wireless performance and accelerate global 5G rollout.
QCT’s integrated circuit products are sold, and its system software is licensed, to manufacturers that use our products in:
Other than for our RFFE modules and RF filter acoustic products, QCT utilizes a fabless production model in which we employ both turnkey and two-stage manufacturing models to purchase our integrated circuits. We do not own or operate foundries for the production of silicon wafers from which our integrated circuits are made.
On February 3, 2017, we completed the formation of a joint venture with TDK Corporation, under the name RF360 Holdings Singapore Pte. Ltd. (RF360 Holdings), to enable delivery of radio frequency front-end (RFFE) modules and radio frequency (RF) filters into fully integrated products for mobile devices and Internet of Things (IoT) applications, among others. On September 16, 2019, we acquired TDK Electronics’ (formerly EPCOS) remaining minority interest for $1.15 billion. The total purchase price, including the initial investment, payments to TDK based on sales by the joint venture, and development obligations, will be approximately $3.1 billion.
