Qualcomm IPS is a product of Qualcomm Technologies, Inc. and/or its subsidiaries.

Universal language for printed content.

Print jobs can come from a variety of devices, form factors, operating systems and applications. Qualcomm® IPS™ Universal Print Interpreter software supports standard page description languages (PDLs) within a common architecture, so that those differing formats don’t affect the final printed product.

How does it work?

IPS software enables color and monochrome printers to be compatible with print jobs from a variety of sources and operating systems. The unified print languages that IPS software provides allows printer and MFP manufacturers to reduce cost and minimize the memory footprint for RAM and flash ROM.

Support for a variety of formats.

IPS software supports the following PDLs and certifications:

  • PostScript
  • PDF
  • XPS
  • PCL 5
  • PCL XL (PCL 6)
  • AirPrint
  • Mopria
  • Google Cloud Print

Modern Printing Protocol Support

An optional configuration enables additional support for modern printing protocols including Apple AirPrint, Mopria Alliance and Google Cloud Print.

Full parallelism and reentrancy

IPS includes enhanced multicore utilization to support superior performance on controllers with two, four or eight cores. In addition, IPS is fully reentrant, so multiple tasks, like printing and previewing a document, can be handled concurrently with a single program instance.

Transparent Imaging Model

IPS extends common display list technology to support high-fidelity native transparency.

Designed For Customization

Complete source code and full engineering documentation are available to allow complete customization for specific requirements.
