We’re utilizing our established mobile technologies to meet the reliability requirements of the automotive industry, providing our customers with a comprehensive automotive connectivity platform that helps define the future of automotive infotainment systems.

 

Customers developing automotive infotainment systems and products face several issues in today’s environment. The rate of innovation is unprecedented, with the in-car experience being transformed by next-generation vehicle infotainment. And a variety of technology must be utilized simultaneously and effectively to meet consumer demand.

 

Our comprehensive solutions bring together a multitude of leading technologies, scale and experience to support the creation of advanced automotive infotainment systems.

Infotainment processor

Automotive-grade Snapdragon processors help offload tasks, improve performance and power, and enhance user experiences with our leading edge CPU, GPU and DSP. 

Rich multimedia support

Support leading audio and video codecs, Echo Cancellation/Noise Reduction (ECNR) and next-generation passenger experiences, such as 4K displays with media sharing. 

GNSS/Location

Vehicle infotainment systems help drivers navigate smoothly with enhanced navigation technologies, including GPS, Glonass, BDS and Galileo.

Integrated automotive infotainment systems

Reduce development costs with our integrated system-on-chip (SoC), system in-package (SiP) and system-on-module (SoM) solutions. 

Hypervisor and multi-OS support

Provide key automotive high-level operating system (HLOS) support for Android, Linux, QNX and device drivers, either in standalone configurations or as “guest” HLOS virtual machines using a type-1 Hypervisor. 

System management

Provide reliable software updates, diagnostics, connectivity management, media management, human-machine interface (HMI), and apps framework. 

Machine intelligence

Deliver neural network processing with Qualcomm® Machine Learning platform from Qualcomm Technologies, Inc., a high-performance platform designed to support multiple on-device capabilities that give consumers more intuitive in-car experiences.

Application enablers

Enhance experiences with applications such as UI, infotainment, navigation and Advanced Driver Assistance Systems (ADAS).

Robust connectivity

Take advantage of multiple car connectivity technologies with multiple wireless and wired interfaces across three dimensions: The cloud, modems and in-vehicle systems.

Premium Bluetooth experience

Deliver high-quality Bluetooth services to the connected car. Our Bluetooth solutions for automotive infotainment systems include support for remote key access, individual seat memorization, user-specific volume preferences and voice-activated message delivery.

Bluetooth low energy

An always-on world stays connected with Bluetooth low energy (BLE) solutions. We have optimized the performance of our Bluetooth sensors to balance performance and battery life, resulting in automotive infotainment systems with connectivity features that users can rely on. BLE has a smaller antenna footprint than a traditional UHF system, making it ideal for automotive situations such as tire pressure statistics, which measure tire pressure and securely alert the driver via smartphone or smartwatch when pressure is low.

Dependable Wi-Fi performance

Supply concurrent support for in-car, multi-antenna Wi-Fi, Bluetooth and Bluetooth Smart with our wireless chips, adapted for the automotive market. This networking strategy provides the ultimate multi-channel streaming experience, with low-latency content distribution and HD video streaming support for up to eight devices per vehicle. Our high-performance automotive Wi-Fi solutions can connect up to four mobile devices to stream multimedia content while simultaneously playing high-quality Bluetooth stereo audio.
