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.
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.
Time flies as we head into July and continue to innovate in order to provide top quality products and services to our customers.

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.

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.
The start of summer brings fresh optimism as we adjust our lives to coexist with the pandemic.
