Qualcomm Technologies, Inc. Key Developments

Qualcomm Technologies and Leap Motion Introduce the First Pairing of a Natural Virtual Reality Interface on the Qualcomm™ Snapdragon® 835 Mobile Platform

Qualcomm Incorporated announced that its subsidiary, Qualcomm Technologies, Inc., in conjunction with Leap Motion, Inc. introduced the first pairing of a natural virtual reality interface on the Qualcomm™ Snapdragon® 835 mobile platform. For the VR enthusiast, this demonstration of Qualcomm Technologies' positional tracking with Leap Motion hand tracking is engineered to offer immersive presence in the virtual world and the power to transform that world with one's bare hands. For the broader VR ecosystem, this relationship ushers in the future of natural human computer interaction for mobile standalone HMDs, and sets a new standard for mobile VR content development. In order for virtual reality to become ubiquitous, it must deliver on the promise of simulating physical presence in real or imagined worlds. This degree of immersion in VR is only possible when virtual visuals, interactions, and sounds become sufficiently close to its real world experiences. The combination of the Snapdragon 835 mobile platform and Leap Motion's cutting-edge hand tracking technology, which renders the precise movement of hands and fingers with very low latency, is designed to allow developers to tap into an incredible software and hardware ecosystem.

Qualcomm Technologies, Inc. and LG Electronics Bring 5G and Cellular-V2X Communications into Vehicles

Qualcomm Incorporated through its subsidiary, Qualcomm Technologies, Inc., and LG Electronics (LG) announced coordinated efforts to facilitate testing and adoption of 5G and Cellular-V2X (C-V2X) communications into vehicles. Qualcomm Technologies and LG expect to showcase these next-generation wireless technologies through trials during the first half of 2018. This work builds on the long-established relationship between Qualcomm Technologies and LG since the two Companies delivered their first telematics system in 2004. On the path to 5G, LG is developing advanced automotive connectivity solutions based on Qualcomm Technologies' connected car platform, which features support for Gigabit LTE speeds using the Qualcomm® Snapdragon™ X16 LTE modem, and is complemented by the QCA65x4 Wi-Fi 802.11ac solution. The connected car platform also supports 802.11p/DSRC and C-V2X, based upon 3rdGeneration Partnership Project (3GPP) Release 14 specifications. With a strong evolution path to 5G, C-V2X technology is a key feature for safety conscious and autonomous driving solutions. C-V2X complements other Advanced Driver Assistance Systems (ADAS) sensors, such as cameras, radar and LIDAR, to provide information about the vehicle's surroundings, even in non-line-of-sight (NLOS) scenarios. In addition to allowing for 360 degree NLOS, C-V2X is also designed to allow for enhanced situational awareness by detecting and exchanging information using direct communications in the 5.9GHz ITS band with other vehicles, infrastructure and pedestrians' devices, as well as network-based communications to cloud services using commercial cellular bands. Compared to current technologies, C-V2X is designed to deliver enhanced V2X direct communication range, reliability, latency and superior NLOS performance. The technology is supported by a broad ecosystem based on 3GPP Release 14 specifications, with trials expected to begin later this year.

Qualcomm Technologies, Inc. and Nokia Announces the Launching of the Nokia Femtocell Multi-Band SOHO

Qualcomm Incorporated through its subsidiary, Qualcomm Technologies, Inc., and Nokia announced the launching of the Nokia Femtocell Multi-band SOHO, a multi-standard femtocell platform designed for the Small Office /Home Office (SOHO) environments that meets the requirements of operators around the world. The new multi-standard solution builds upon the market-proven Femtocell Multi-band Residential (9961 Multi-Standard Home Cell V1) platform already deployed in hundreds of thousands of units, and extends the capabilities of residential products to SOHO deployments, which includes small enterprises, coffee shops, restaurants, small hotels and more. The Nokia Femtocell Multi-band SOHO features the Qualcomm® FSMâ„¢ 99xx chipset, which enables best-in-class power consumption and integration for enterprise-grade femtocells, as well as being optimized for low cost and support for Power-over-Ethernet (PoE) configuration. It is designed to enable Ethernet-powered femtocells capable of supporting 32 UMTS and up to 64 LTE device users simultaneously, to ease the transition from 3G to 4G or 2x LTE bands in combination for faster LTE data rate. The Femtocell Multi-band SOHO will be available in frequency band combinations supporting Latin America, Europe, North American and Asia Pacific. The platform includes easy-to-use integrated solutions that support advanced connectivity features, such as self-organization, self-optimizing, Plug and Play over standard Ethernet connections, and VoLTE.
