The Internet of Things (IoT) connects devices that exchange data with other devices and systems over the internet. Connecting everything everywhere leads to a continuous stream of enormous data being generated and this data needs to be processed in real-time to make good use of it and drive applications.
IoT brings a massive surge of smart, connected devices and SMART Wireless has been in the forefront to drive this market with its solutions and products that span over multiple generations of Qualcomm Snapdragon processors and cater to a diverse set of applications.
The current pandemic situation has necessitated virtual events and e-meetings to replace physical trade shows and exhibitions to showcase our solutions. Must is a B2B Matchmaking platform, and brings virtual infrastructural support to companies by using powerful technologies to enable visitors to e-meet and network with other visitors and Exhibitors’.
Smart Wireless is participating in an exciting Virtual Tradeshow organized by Must! Experience it with this link, and select ‘Access to VE,’ then drag to the right and select the SMART logo. With cool graphics and 3D motion akin to a video game, visitors ‘walk’ through the booth as if at a convention center. Enter from the lobby, and ‘walk’ around to see our product presentations and posters.
There are resources to download such as product collateral, and a ‘chat’ function that visitors can use to message in real-time, as well as a meeting request function to schedule a convenient online conference. Give it a spin and join thousands of others!
Graphics Processing Units (GPUs) are a key part of parallel computing on systems where the workloads are shared between the CPU, GPU and other processors. GPUs break complex problems into millions of separate tasks and work them out at once. That makes them ideal for graphics, where textures, lighting and the rendering of shapes have to be done at once to keep images flying across the screen.

Qualcomm® Snapdragon™ processors allow spectacular, true-to-life photos and vibrant videos to be captured through their advanced camera technologies, including the Spectra™ Image Signal Processor. The integrated signal processing technology allows capture of high resolution content from a distance without sacrificing visual quality and unwanted vibrations. The camera technology in Snapdragon platforms can scan for visual noise, allowing for bright and colorful photos regardless of lighting conditions by enhancing and sharpening images where it’s needed most. With high dynamic range (HDR) for a more vibrant color range and noise reduction for sharper and cleaner images, you can capture colors that appear as true to life as possible.

Audio bring up, routing and testing can be a demanding task without the right tools for the job. The ALSA (Advanced Linux Sound Architecture) project offers an excellent tool through a suite of hardware drivers, libraries and utilities which provide audio and MIDI functionality for the Linux operating system. ALSA is a software framework and part of the Linux kernel that provides an application programming interface (API) for sound card device drivers. It allows for automatic configuration of sound-card hardware and easy handling of multiple sound devices in a system.

Snapdragon™ processors are designed to ensure that the content rendered on connected displays looks great even under tough lighting conditions. The underlying Qualcomm® Technologies make great displays look even better! Snapdragon processors natively support popular graphical displays like MIPI-DSI and HDMI. HDMI displays that output any of the standard resolutions typically work out of the box on Snapdragon based platforms but displays of other electrical interfaces require programming to be done. Different use-cases necessitate different types of electrical interfaces for the connected displays and these signals may not be natively supported.
