Qualcomm Technology Licensing

We want to support your next big idea.

No matter how an organization contributes to the wireless world—as a network operator, device manufacturer, content provider, or corporate consumer—it can count on Qualcomm to provide the foundation upon which great ideas are built.

Countless forward thinkers, one common goal.

At Qualcomm, we license companies around the world to design, manufacture, and sell products based on our industry-leading technology. And with each innovation discovered, with each inventive solution developed, the entire wireless industry grows stronger as our licensees' efforts encourage more users to join in the wireless revolution.
