Wei Feng network, September 14, in recent days, currently the largest smart-phone chip maker Qualcomm announced that will be more intelligent, more cheap drone, inject fresh vitality into the UAV market. Meanwhile, Qualcomm also unveiled their Snapdragon reference design for unmanned Flight (Xiao long vehicles), compared with allegedly other drones in HD video, navigation, and communication in superior.
According to information released Qualcomm, Snapdragon based on Snapdragon Flight 801 design, but also high-pass their own smart-phone chips for the first time brought to the UAV field, most of the machines is no stranger to the chip, it was once the flagship Android phone processor, HTC, Samsung Galaxy One M8 S5 and Sony Xperia Z3 has used chips are quad-core design, frequency can be reached 2.26GHz.
Snapdragon Flight unmanned, Snapdragon 801 will play a key role as a real-time controller such as its DSP digital signal processor, bringing GPS global satellite navigation receiver, supports dual-band Wi-Fi and Bluetooth connectivity, and provides quick charging cable support can handle 4K video in real time, and also supports sensors such as barometers, etc. Because of Qualcomm's strategy is similar to mobile phone market, announced a set of relevant software and SDK development tool, therefore the chip whether the drone is also OEM hardware vendors, potential seems to be quite amazing.
Qualcomm entered the UAV market what does that mean? As we all know, the past couple of years, unmanned aerial vehicle development is soaring, DIY UAV has become many people's interest, you can see that many fans use the drones start doing all kinds of crazy things, such as room service, fishing, aerial photography program and catch the thieves and so on. However, the UAV market is still young, it's not a cheap toy, excellent high power drone quite expensive, ranging from thousands of, many tens of thousands.
However, Qualcomm's involvement would make the UAV market change, not only to achieve strong hardware UAV rapid manufacturing and production to help unmanned machines reduce a huge amount of volume and enhancements, but also can be sold at an affordable price. Most importantly, high pass from profitable.
Qualcomm hopes fill the gap between expensive expensive and cheap drone
There is no doubt that high pass into the UAV market is at the moment quite a smart move, because no one can provide quite limited to date, especially in terms of high-fidelity visual experience or smart technology. So, for unmanned aerial vehicles leads to better primary function became Qualcomm's breakthrough, Snapdragon Flight platform for unmanned aerial vehicles will in future significantly improved communications with the ground, with 4K ultra-HD video recording as well as.
"The benefits of integrated design is realized unmanned aerial vehicles reduce the size, weight and power consumption, thus prolonging the flight time and improve safety. "Qualcomm said, through the integrated chip, aerial drones price can drop hundreds of dollars.
It is understood that Qualcomm Yuneec's first partner in China, has taken the lead in completed the Snapdragon-based UAV Flight platform design, highly integrated circuit board size of only 58x40mm specification, but was only officially commercialized by 2016.
High throughput as long as the reassuring drone with powerful and battery level, according to the two characteristics of the development of the huge price difference. But Qualcomm does not wish to significantly raise prices, because most fans focus more on unmanned aerial vehicle basic performance and the functionality provided by Qualcomm, much to their later adjustment can be made better. All in all drones market still has a long way to go, if the price and performance advantages together, and believe that the near future will make up the development. Paul Frank case
