Qualcomm is experiencing tremendous success, in the smartphone and tablet segment. Snapdragon processors have evolved considerably over the years, and are forever in one-upmanship in grabbing sizeable market stakes. Building on it, the company unveiled an all-encompassing plan of launching a digital age of connected products based on Snapdragon processors. Qualcomm has targeted embedded computing applications in broad segments including robotics, medical devices, connected homes, smart cities, digital signage, multimedia, imaging, industrial tablets, and independent wearable devices.
Qualcomm’s subsidiary, Qualcomm Life, Inc., recently announced its collaboration with Walgreens at the CES 2015. The objective is to power device connectivity with Walgreens mobile and web applications, enabled with medical device connectivity and care coordination capabilities. Qualcomm is the connectivity backbone of the connected health ecosystem, which includes more than 500 organizations as of now.
The CES 2015 also included a demonstration on stage of LIFX light that allows the transformation of an LED light into a connected light – featuring a plug-in module. Qualcomm representatives at the event mentioned that the company was focused on supporting EFX multi-input/multi-output (MU-MIMO) Wi-Fi technology for connecting devices and apps throughout homes and offices.
The surprise package was when Qualcomm displayed a concept car based on a 2015 Cadillac XTS, introducing connecting technologies from smartphones, tablets and gaming consoles. The Android-based car featured HD displays LTE connectivity for multimedia, gesture and voice recognition, multiple safety features including collision detection, lane detection and so on.
It is true that the company is feverishly working to see their smart and efficient chips are being leveraged to connected home, work, health, store, car and people products. eInfochips, being the Official Licensee Partner for the Snapdragon plays a significant role as a technology enabler.
