Qualcomm Technologies, Inc. Key Developments

New Qualcomm Quick Charge 4 Delivers Up to 20% Faster Charging, Improved Efficiency

Qualcomm Incorporated announced that its subsidiary, Qualcomm Technologies, Inc., has introduced the latest generation of its fast-charging technology with Qualcomm® Quick Charge 4. Quick Charge 4 will be available with the next generation Qualcomm® Snapdragon® 835 processor. Snapdragon 835 is expected to ship in commercial devices in the first half of 2017. Building upon Qualcomm Technologies' existing leadership in fast charging implementations, Quick Charge 4 is designed to provide a superior charging solution by delivering faster charge times and higher efficiency than prior generations. For typical premium phone users, Quick Charge 4 is engineered to extend smartphone use by five or more hours with only five minutes of charging. Using Dual Charge, Qualcomm Technologies' parallel charging technology, users can enjoy up to 20% faster charging and up to 30% higher efficiency compared with Quick Charge 3.0. Quick Charge 4 also integrates USB Type-C and USB-PD support, making the industry's most popular battery charging solution available on the widest variety of cables and adapters. Quick Charge 4 features the third release of INOV (Intelligent Negotiation for Optimum Voltage), a unique power-management algorithm designed by Qualcomm Technologies. INOV now includes real-time thermal management, a technology industry first, which is designed to advance charging optimization by automatically determining and selecting the optimal power transfer level for a given thermal condition. In addition to providing the most consistent in-box and out-of-box charging experience, Quick Charge 4 comes with advanced safety features for both the adapter and mobile device. Protection is implemented at multiple levels and throughout the entire charging process to more accurately measure voltage, current, and temperature while protecting the battery, system, cables and connectors. An additional layer of protection is also being added to help prevent battery over-charging and regulate current throughout every charge cycle. For optimal Quick Charge 4 performance, Qualcomm Technologies is introducing the newest power management ICs (PMIC), SMB1380 and SMB1381. With low impedance, up to 95% peak efficiency, and advanced fast charging features, such as battery differential sensing, SMB1380 and SMB1381 are engineered to provide the fast battery charging from any 5V USB Type-C or high-voltage power source while supporting ultra-thin mobile devices with a charging solution profile of less than 0.8mm. SMB1380/1 is expected to be available before the end of 2016.

Qualcomm Technologies, Inc. and Samsung Electronics Co., Ltd. Collaborate on 10nm Process Technology for Snapdragon 835 Mobile Processor

Qualcomm Technologies, Inc. and Samsung Electronics Co. Ltd., have extended their decade-long strategic foundry collaboration to manufacture Qualcomm Technologies' Snapdragon premium processor, Qualcomm® Snapdragon™ 835, with Samsung's 10-nanometer (nm) FinFET process technology. The decision to use Samsung's process in the next generation premium processor highlights Qualcomm Technologies' continued dedication in being the technology leader in mobile platforms.

Qualcomm Technologies, Inc. Introduces Its First 5G New Radio

Qualcomm Incorporated announced that its subsidiary, Qualcomm Technologies, Inc., has introduced its first 5G New Radio (NR) spectrum sharing prototype system and trial platform. The industry is designing 5G NR to get the most out of spectrum available across all spectrum types – licensed, unlicensed and shared spectrum – and across spectrum from lower bands (sub-6 GHz) to high bands in the mmWave range. Qualcomm Technologies' prototype system aims to show that 5G spectrum sharing technologies will bring higher levels of mobile broadband performance to shared spectrum to enable fiber-like experiences, as well as extending 5G into new types of deployments, such as dedicated 5G networks for enterprise and industrial IoT. This new prototype is based on the Qualcomm Technologies' sub-6GHz and mmWave 5G NR end-to-end prototypes which includes both base station and user equipment (UE). The Qualcomm Technologies spectrum sharing testbed is expanded to support Listen-Before-Talk (LBT) technology, wideband waveforms with low latency, and enhancements in the radio and network protocols, on top of which new spectrum sharing technologies are being designed and evaluated. 5G spectrum sharing will expand and enhance the spectrum sharing technologies introduced in LTE, specifically License Assisted Access (LAA) to aggregate across spectrum types, LTE Wi-Fi Aggregation (LWA) to aggregate across technologies, CBRS/License Shared Access (LSA) to share spectrum with incumbents and other deployments, MulteFire to operate stand-alone deployments in unlicensed spectrum, as well as introducing new spectrum sharing paradigms. Qualcomm Technologies' new prototype system will be utilized for technology development in 2017 with field trials together with industry leaders to follow.
