Last month at our Snapdragon™ Technology Summit we made some exciting announcements about our Snapdragon 845 Mobile Platform that we want to share with our developer community. Most notably, there are substantial updates coming in the Snapdragon 845 Mobile Platform that you’ll want to start thinking about for your next development cycle.
We’re on a mission here to make it easier for you to program the Qualcomm® Hexagon™ DSP.
It’s kind of a shame to throw workloads like inference, scene classification, image processing and video playback enhancement at the CPU and GPU of an edge device like a smartphone, where they burn up cycles and wear down the battery. The easier we make it for you to program the DSP, the sooner your apps can run those and similar workloads with higher performance and lower power consumption.
Thanks to new web standards, the HTML layer that runs on most web browsers1 can now render more complex and dynamic content than ever before. And with the addition of fast mobile processors such as the Qualcomm® Snapdragon™ mobile platform; the “web app vs mobile app debate” is increasingly bringing the topic of Progressive Web Apps (PWAs) into your app development options.
Utilizing Blockchain in Your Development
When it comes to recording information, mankind has used everything from clay tablets, to paper records, to client/server-based information systems. Unfortunately, these forms of record keeping are prone to a number of issues. For example, a clay tablet can be broken or lost, paper records can lose readability over time or be forged, and computer servers may be hacked.
