A recent blog article discussed how Irida Labs uses Symphony (and other Qualcomm Tools) for their work. Here is a few excerpts from the article

Another valuable tool in this task is Symphony™ SDK, which allows us easy integration of heterogeneous system elements and shortens the development time. Power consumption is crucial for mobile and IoT applications and we use Symphony’s power management API for optimizing power consumption of our code.

At the initial steps of our development efforts – before we became Qualcomm Snapdragon gurus – we enjoyed using MARE (now Symphony) for partitioning our code, and parallelizing it across the various CPUs of the Snapdragon processor. Then we managed to use this software for managing the power consumption, and keep it within the limits of the specifications. We find the Hexagon GPU a valuable ally in the battle for low power consumption! By using the Hexagon SDK, we managed to develop super-efficient software.  

Did using this Qualcomm technology speed up your development process? 
Although we are power users of software tools from Qualcomm Developer Network in general, we have enjoyed using Symphony SDK for some time now. By using this software, we could efficiently partition and optimize our code onto Snapdragon processors, and improve the power efficiency via the power management API.
