To Control System-Relevant Functions
Whether in consumer electronics or in industrial applications, hardly any product today works without a processor that controls system-relevant functions and thus ensures that a device functions according to its specification. Depending on the complexity of a product, different processor classes are used, ranging from small 8-bit to 64-bit architectures. The latter can be found especially in applications where high-resolution video and image formats of 4K or higher need to be processed.
Beside the classical consumer electronics such as TV and Gaming these requirements are demanded meanwhile also within many other areas e.g. video surveillance, video conference systems, drones, robotics, smart displays (information, advertising, kiosk), IoT and AI.
In order to be able to handle the computing power required in these areas, a single-core architecture is no longer sufficient. For this reason, multi-core processors with 4 or even 8 CPUs, often ARM Cortex-A based, are increasingly being offered to meet the challenges of increasingly complex SW. In addition, other CPUs such as graphics processors and DSPs are integrated to outsource application-specific and thus computationally intensive algorithms such as those for video signal processing.Samples Contacts News
QUALCOMM's Snapdragon Processors
QUALCOMM's Snapdragon processors are true computational artists and master image processing for high-resolution cameras and displays like no other processor. In the past, these processors were only integrated into mobile devices such as cell phones and tablets, but the industry is increasingly calling for them to be used also for the above mentioned applications. QUALCOMM has responded to this call and, with its Snapdragon Enable program, is now making the QCS410 and QCS610 processors available to the distribution for the very first time.
As a result, CODICO can now provide technical and commercial support to customers for a chip-down design for the two application processors mentioned above. Our Field Application Engineers have received technical training in this area and work closely with QUALCOMM's engineering team to assist you with all your questions. Please contact us if you need a reference designs, samples, documents or SW. We look forward to assisting you.
CODICO will of course continue to offer the C410 and C610 module solutions from Thundercomm, which integrate not only the QCS410 and QCS610 basic chips, but also peripheral components for audio and wireless connectivity (WiFi + BT) as well as memory. For further information, please refer to our product matrix.
