Qualcomm® was built on the spirit of innovation. We believe an idea can spark a change, transforming the world in extraordinary new ways. For us, collaboration is the key to igniting that spark. Our inventions are the foundation of so many of the incredible advancements that are part of our wireless world today—from smartphones to tablets, to cameras and cars and homes. And every day, we are inspired to discover what comes next on the road to invention.

We invent the tech the world loves.

Moving the wireless industry forward.

Our business model is surprisingly simple: invent, share, collaborate. Since our foundation , Qualcomm has relentlessly invented fundamental technology that enables the modern mobile experience—and we share these inventions in two distinct ways. We share these inventions broadly through licensing,  ensuring wide ecosystem access to foundational technology at the core of mobile innovation. And through the development of wireless chipset platforms and other product solutions, we accelerate consumer adoption of experiences enabled by these inventions. As a company, we  collaborate across the entire ecosystem—from manufacturers to operators and developers, from governments to standards—to create a global environment that continuously drives progress and growth. 

Bringing invention to life.

Our inventions have helped to change the world, reshaping how we live, work, learn and play.

Building for the future.
