Qualcomm Fuels IoT Growth by Currently Delivering More Than 1 Million Chips a Day into a Wide Range of Connected Applications

Qualcomm Incorporated (NASDAQ: QCOM) through its subsidiary, Qualcomm Technologies, Inc., today announced at its Internet of Things (IoT) industry analyst workshop that the Company is currently shipping more than 1 million chips per day for the IoT*. This momentum reflects Qualcomm Technologies’ unique ability to invent and deliver the technologies needed for the IoT, and to meet challenging customer requirements for interoperability, connectivity, compute and security. The Company uses its technical expertise to design platforms that help customers commercialize IoT products quickly and cost-effectively in areas including wearables, voice and music, connected cameras, robotics and drones, home control and automation, home entertainment, and commercial and industrial IoT.

“We are focused on significantly expanding capabilities at the edge of the network by supporting everyday objects with the connectivity, compute and security technologies required to build a powerful Internet of Things, where devices are smart, convenient, work well together and incorporate advanced security features,” said Raj Talluri, senior vice president, product management, IoT, Qualcomm Technologies, Inc. “While hundreds of brands have shipped over 1.5 billion IoT products using our solutions, we are just getting a glimpse of the benefits that the IoT can deliver, with analysts estimating that IoT applications could have a total economic impact of up to 11 trillion dollars a year by 2025. We have built strong capabilities on top of our leadership in mobile inventions, and we are innovating in exciting new areas such as deep learning, voice interface and LTE IoT that will power a new generation of IoT devices.”

Qualcomm Technologies’ traction in IoT spans across a variety of ecosystems. For instance, the Company's wearables platforms have been adopted in more than 150 wearable designs, and over 80 percent of Android Wear™ smartwatches launched or announced are based on Snapdragon Wear 2100. In smart homes, more than 125 million TVs, home entertainment and other connected home products from leading brands have shipped using Qualcomm Technologies’ connectivity chips. For commercial and industrial IoT applications, over 30 designs are using the Company’s MDM9206 modem with multimode support for LTE categories M1 and NB1, E-GPRS and global RF bands. MDM9206 is purposely developed for IoT applications and is commercially available today.

To address this wide variety of ecosystems, form factors and requirements in the IoT, Qualcomm Technologies offers one of the broadest portfolios of chips and platforms, including mobile, multimedia, cellular, Wi-Fi and Bluetooth system-on-chips. These solutions include comprehensive software with platform-specific applications and APIs, as well as support for multiple communication protocols, operating systems and cloud services.

To further help manufacturers develop IoT devices quickly and cost-effectively, Qualcomm Technologies makes available more than 25 production-ready reference design platforms through a network of original design manufacturers (ODMs) for products including voice-enabled home assistants, connected cameras, drones, VR headsets, lighting, appliances and smart hubs/gateways.

Qualcomm releases whitepaper detailing pointer authentication on ARMv8.3

ARM recently announced ARMv8.3-A, the 2016 additions to the ARMv8-A architecture. These additions include pointer authentication instructions: “a mechanism for enhanced security associated with pointer authentication.” It is very exciting to see the technology, refined and expanded through discussions and contributions from ARM and its partners, making it into the architecture as the new pointer authentication instructions.

The pointer authentication scheme added to the ARMv8 architecture is a software security primitive that makes it much harder for an attacker to modify protected pointers in memory without being detected. In a new Qualcomm whitepaper, we describe the pointer authentication mechanism including the design criteria, provide a security analysis, and discuss the implementation of certain software security countermeasures such as stack protection and control flow integrity using the pointer authentication primitives.

These new instructions provide a way for quickly verifying the integrity of pointers and data in memory. In addition to the use cases described in the whitepaper, we expect these primitives to pave way to new techniques and opportunities to improve the memory safety of programs and runtime environments.
