APQ8016E Application Processor Product Brief

Designed to meet the demanding requirements of embedded computing applications with its high performance, energy efficiency, multimedia features and integrated connectivity, the Qualcomm® APQ8016E application processor is ideal for a broad mix of use cases, such as smart homes, building automation, industrial control and digital signage. From the DragonBoard™ 410c development board, to production-ready system-on-modules (SOM), to the discrete processor for chip on board designs, there are solutions to support APQ8016E application processor based devices from initial concept all the way to commercialization.

Evaluate and Develop

The DragonBoard™ platform is a development kit based on a Snapdragon processor. The kit exposes the Snapdragon processor and lets you take advantage of pins, connectors, adapters, and expansion headers to tap into its functionality in your own product development efforts. The DragonBoard development kit is ideal for creating and prototyping hardware components, developing middleware, specifying and testing embedded and IoT systems, conducting research, and teaching and learning electronic engineering.

Development Kits
Development kits provide a perfect starting point for application developers, component vendors, and device makers to evaluate, develop, test, and deploy solutions that utilize the Snapdragon platform.

Prototype and Commercialize

Single Board Computers (SBC)
Like its name implies, a single-board computer (SBC) is a computer built on a single circuit board, with microprocessor(s), memory, input/output (I/O) and other features required of a functional computer. SBCs powered by Snapdragon processors come in a production-ready form factor that can accelerate development time for media-rich and smart embedded applications in a single unit or in OEM volumes.
