Qualcomm products mentioned within this post are offered by Qualcomm Technologies, Inc. and/or its subsidiaries.

Qualcomm may be best known for superior mobile processors, powering millions of smartphones and tablets and keeping the world connected. But we’re also pushing hard to bring mobile experiences to new platforms, and to redefine what it means to stay connected.

That’s why we’re so excited to announce that the Automotive Development Platform (ADP) based on the Qualcomm® Snapdragon™ processor is now available for purchase through Intrinsyc.

Powered by a Snapdragon 602A automotive-grade processor, the ADP brings the most advanced entertainment and connectivity capabilities available in mobile devices to the world of automotive. Equipped with Qualcomm® Gobi™ 3G/4G LTE wireless modems and Qualcomm® VIVE™ 802.11ac technologies, automakers and their suppliers will be able to transform the in-car experiences of drivers everywhere. Just as with wearables, smart homes, and smart TVs, the car can be integrated into a personal mobile ecosystem.

The Snapdragon ADP is designed to support unmatched possibilities for next-generation connected infotainment like cloud-based content access and streaming, in-vehicle high-speed 802.11ac Wi-Fi hotspots supporting multiple devices, enhanced 3D navigation and GNSS-enabled location-based services. Software developers can design new applications that make use of features like high-quality audio processing and full surround sound, to go along with rear-seat 3D gaming with high-resolution graphics and HD multi-screen video (enabled by the Qualcomm® Adreno™ 320 GPU). Plus, mobile device screen sharing is now possible with Miracast.

By allowing drivers and passengers access to interact with their vehicle and their media in dynamic new ways, the potential now exists to revolutionize the smart connected automobile.  We’re excited to see what’s down that road.

Qualcomm® VIVE™ is a product of Qualcomm Atheros, Inc.
