Qualcomm has announced two new Snapdragon models, the 600E and 410E, where the E stands for Embedded. These two models have been designed specifically for embedded computing and Internet of Things applications. This includes devices such as set-top boxes, medical images, point of sale systems, digital signage, televisions, media players, interactive kiosks, robotics, high-end toys, thermostats, surveillance systems, and more.

Snapdragon is a powerful and versatile processor with many potential applications in a wide variety of IoT applications and we can now offer this technology to a much wider range of customers with the additional benefit of long-term support and availability,” said Raj Talluri, senior vice president, product management, Qualcomm Technologies, Inc. “The Snapdragon 600E and 410E bring together some of our best connectivity and compute technologies to meet the needs for a large range of embedded and IoT applications.”

The Snapdragon 600E featuring 1.5GHz quad-core Qualcomm® Krait™ 300 CPU is the ideal processor for building advanced systems with multi-core performance and immersive 3D graphics, thanks to the Qualcomm® Adreno™ 320 GPU and Qualcomm® Hexagon™ DSP. It supports integrated Bluetooth 4.0/LE & 3.x, 802.11 a/b/g/n/ac and GPS for connected applications. It is also highly expandable for a variety of use cases with SATA, SD3.0, DDR memory, eMMC storage, HDMI, LVDS, HSIC, and PCIe interfaces.

The Snapdragon 410E 1.2GHz quad-core processor offers high performance, low power consumption and rich multimedia with an Adreno 306 GPU and Hexagon DSP. It supports Bluetooth 4.1/LE, 802.11 b/g/n and GPS, making it ideal for IoT use cases in smart homes, digital signage, medical equipment, industrial automation, digital media players and smart surveillance.

Qualcomm also announced that these will be the first Snapdragon products that will be made available through third-party distributors to manufacturers of embedded computing and IoT devices. The first distributor is Arrow Electronics and more will be added later.
