Qualcomm Powers Next Generation Project Tango Development Platform

-Development Platform Integrates Qualcomm Snapdragon 810 Processor and Depth-Sensing Capabilities for 3D Reconstruction-

SAN DIEGO and SAN FRANCISCO, May 29, 2015 — (PRNewswire) —  Qualcomm Technologies, Inc., a subsidiary of Qualcomm Incorporated (NASDAQ: QCOM), today announced at Google I/O that its premium tier Qualcomm® Snapdragon™ 810 processor will power Google's next generation Project Tango smartphone development platform. Project Tango devices combine the camera, gyroscope, and accelerometer to estimate six degrees of freedom motion tracking, providing developers the ability to track 3D motion of a device while simultaneously creating a map of the environment. This capability is especially useful for applications such as real-world 3D gaming, indoor navigation, and virtual and augmented reality experiences. The development platform will be available for purchase in Q3 2015.

The Snapdragon 810 processor is designed to deliver the most advanced connected mobile computing experiences across video, imaging and graphics, making it ideal for applications that require complex 3D mapping. The Qualcomm® Adreno™ 430 GPU is designed to deliver fast graphics and compute performance while reducing power consumption. It offers support for camera image and video post-processing, hardware tessellation, geometry shaders and programmable blending, as well as advanced GPU security for secure composition and management of premium video and other multimedia. The Snapdragon 810 processor also supports superior camera functionality, including dual 14-bit Image Signal Processors (ISP) with fast autofocus, depth sensing, and advanced imaging software that helps enable advanced camera features particularly in low light environments. High quality 4K HEVC Ultra HD video encoding and decoding is also supported by Snapdragon 810.

"Qualcomm Technologies is pleased to power the next generation Project Tango development device," said Raj Talluri, senior vice president of product management, Qualcomm Technologies. "We're excited to work together with Google and Android developers to help deliver new, innovative visual experiences using depth-sensing technology on mobile devices."

Developers will be able to utilize tools from the Qualcomm Developer Network that enable them to take advantage of features included in the premium tier Snapdragon 810 processor and enhance the performance of their Android applications, such as access to the Qualcomm® Hexagon™  DSP via the Hexagon SDK as well as the Qualcomm® Vuforia™ mobile vision platform.
