Snapdragon XR2 HMD Reference Design

XR Solutions from Thundercomm

What if you could use 5G technology, blend virtual and physical environments and immerse your users in VR content while they remain aware of the real world around them?

The Snapdragon XR2 HMD is a reference design powered by the Snapdragon® XR2 5G Platform. This head-mounted device is engineered for software development and testing in a form factor that is accurate for deep interaction with AR and VR content. Use it to explore customer requirements like industrial/mechanical/electrical design, integration of antennas and the Qualcomm® RF Front End (RFFE) architecture.

To combine VR, AR and physical reality into mixed reality, the Snapdragon XR2 HMD supports 3D audio, 3D video pass-through and 360-degree 8K. Users can toggle between levels of immersion and remain aware of the real environment without removing their headset and without being tethered to a separate device. Seven concurrent cameras offer precise motion tracking and gesture recognition, and the combination of eXtended reality with 5G means your users can enjoy boundless XR.

The Snapdragon XR2 HMD reference design from Thundercomm belongs to the family of Snapdragon-powered XR products that developers and manufacturers can use to shorten their time to commercialization.
