Qualcomm X70 5G Modem
X70 5G baseband is the world’s first 5G AI processor, supporting 10Gbps 5G transmission speed, and the world’s only 5G modem and radiofrequency system that supports all 5G commercial frequency bands from 600MHz to 41GHz. Qualcomm’s 5G AI suite, with unparalleled transmission speeds, network coverage, and low latency, provides operators with ultimate flexibility and power efficiency. 10Gbps 5G transmission speed, downlink four-carrier aggregation, 3.5Gbps peak upload speed, uplink carrier aggregation, uplink transmission switching based on carrier aggregation, support for 100MHz envelope tracking technology, and Qualcomm 5G ultra-low latency kit.
For global operators, the X70 modem also has flexible advantages such as millimetre-wave independent networking support, global multi-SIM card, spectrum aggregation, global 5G millimetre-wave and Sub-6GHz frequency bands, and scalable architecture.
The X70 modem also has excellent energy efficiency and long-lasting battery life. The third-generation Qualcomm 5G PowerSave has a 60% increase in energy efficiency, AI-assisted adaptive antenna tuning, and Qualcomm QET7100 broadband envelope tracking.
FastConnect 7800 is the world’s first Wi-Fi 7 solution, the world’s fastest Wi-Fi experience with the lowest latency, and industry-leading wireless audio technology. The 5.8Gbps rate is increased by 60%, the latency is as low as 2ms, which is reduced by 50%, and the ultimate energy efficiency is improved by 30-50%. 4K QAM modulation technology, 320MHz channel, comprehensive multi-connection support. Support Snapdragon Sound dual-channel concurrency, reduce power consumption by up to 50%, pairing speed is increased by 2 times, signal receiving range is increased by 2 times, LE Audio and Bluetooth 5.3 support.
Qualcomm has signed 45 partners worldwide to adopt Snapdragon Sound technology, and Qualcomm has launched the new QCC517x and QCC307x audio platforms, which reduce power consumption by 20%, meet the needs of all-weather wearing, support CD-level lossless sound quality, and support Bluetooth LE Audio-compliant audio platforms. Share games and recordings, support the third-generation Qualcomm adaptive active noise reduction technology, support aptX Adaptive audio, support Qualcomm cVc echo cancellation and noise suppression. Compared with the previous generation, the computing performance is up to 2 times, and the storage is improved by 3 times. This is also the first time that CD-level lossless sound quality has been applied to wireless earbuds. 68ms full link delay, reduced by 25%, supports voice synchronous return, and stereo audio recording.
Snapdragon 8cx Gen 3
In the PC field, Snapdragon drives the PC industry to migrate to Windows on Arm. Lenovo ThinkPad X13s will launch the third-generation Snapdragon 8cx computing platform, with 28-hour battery life and various AI functions, meeting the requirements of the Snapdragon Connect logo. At present, the Snapdragon computing platform has 225+ enterprise customers, 100+ independent software developers, and 15+ channel partners.
Snapdragon will also become the key to the Metaverse, providing XR devices, software platforms, and developer tools to accelerate the realization of a new immersive XR experience. At MWC, there will also be a Chinese company cooperating with Qualcomm in XR.
In the automotive industry, the Snapdragon digital chassis will become a platform for automotive innovation, including the Snapdragon car-to-cloud service, the Snapdragon cockpit platform, the Snapdragon automotive intelligence platform, and the Snapdragon Ride platform, with a total order value of $13 billion.
In terms of promoting industry transformation, Qualcomm can simplify the deployment of 5G private networks. Qualcomm can provide an enterprise private network RAN automation platform. It has also launched a 5G enterprise private network partner ecosystem program, and has joined hands with Microsoft to provide a new end-to-end solution from chip to cloud. Terminal solutions, the main 5G enterprise private network deployment. Qualcomm is also promoting the evolution to open virtualized 5G RAN, providing next-generation 5G virtualized distributed unit solutions.
RF Antenna and mmWave
Qualcomm also brought the second-generation 5G fixed wireless access platform. The 5G RF Sensing kit supports high-performance millimeter-wave self-installation CPE and 5G millimeter-wave independent networking. More than 125 fixed wireless access models from more than 40 manufacturers use the Qualcomm platform. Terminals have been released or are under design.
