Qualcomm IoT Chipset based Networked Content Distribution Solutions

Digital signage as a communication tool has made it possible to broadcast multimedia content in real-time over long distances to remote display devices. It smartens up the old concept of static content with added interactivity and connectivity. The content can range from simple text and still images, to ultra-high definition videos with or without audio. Digital signage offers a lot of advantages like secured content, contextual content updates, an integrated set of communication channels and dynamic features enabled by artificial intelligence (AI).Qualcomm IoT Chipset based Networked Content Distribution Solutions Continue reading Qualcomm IoT Chipset based Networked Content Distribution Solutions

Creating Reliable IoT Products Through Circuit Protection Design Techniques

Creating reliable IoT products through circuit protection design techniques

The Internet of Things (IoT) connects a lot of dissimilar devices that collaborate together with the intent of gathering and sharing data. Threats to this ecosystem, such as risks of system failure from various overcurrent, overtemperature, electrostatic (ESD) and electromagnetic pulse (EMP) apart from environmental conditions are very likely and mitigation methods are thus absolutely necessary to ensure a high level of reliability that is expected from the IoT infrastructure. Product designers worry about device functionality and performance primarily but as more devices get included into the IoT infrastructure, it is essential to include circuit protection techniques in to the product design cycle.

Enabling ROS on our Qualcomm Snapdragon based Products

Enabling ROS on our Qualcomm Snapdragon based products

The Robot Operating System (ROS) is an open source collection of software frameworks and provides capabilities that you would expect from an operating system, like hardware abstraction, low-level device control, implementation of commonly-used functionality, message-passing between processes, and package management. ROS is a collection of tools, libraries, and conventions that aim to simplify the task of creating complex and robust robot behavior across a wide variety of robotic platforms by encouraging collaborative robotics software development. For example, one laboratory might have experts in mapping indoor environments, and could contribute a world-class system for producing maps. Another group might have experts at using maps to navigate, and yet another group might have discovered a computer vision approach that works well for recognizing small objects in clutter. ROS was designed specifically for groups like these to collaborate and build upon each other’s work. Continue reading Enabling ROS on our Qualcomm Snapdragon based Products

IoT Device Management on SMART Wireless Products

Iot Device Management on Smart Products

The Internet of Things (IoT) continues to expand its reach extensively, as more and more devices get connected to collaborate together with the intent of gathering and sharing data. This ecosystem consists of diverse devices, different networks, varied protocols, connections, clouds and databases. Devices range from sensors and single purpose modules, to powerful gateways that route communications for groups of devices. The use cases and requirements for IoT operators too vary significantly across industries. Installed devices will need software updates and bug fixes and a few may need to be repaired or replaced owing to hardware failures. For applications reliant on this ecosystem to deliver transformative business value, a scalable and dependable IoT device management solution is necessary that ensures that all devices are current, always accessible and secure. Device management refers to all of the tools, capabilities and processes necessary to support IoT solutions effectively at scale. Continue reading IoT Device Management on SMART Wireless Products

Enabling Google Mobile Services on our Android Devices

Enabling Google Mobile Services on Our DevicesThe Android project (AOSP) is an open source operating system development project supported by Google. Google oversees this project’s general direction and the bulk of development. This project contains everything necessary to build Android but misses a few things necessary for creating a market ready hardware device and these include peripheral device drivers or processor architecture related optimizations. The Code Aurora Foundation (CAF) maintained by Qualcomm, serves their SoC driven ecosystem by hosting optimized, tested Android open source code needed to provide upstream enablement.
