Which Application Processor is Right for You?

Download Selector Guide for Qualcomm Application Processors

Optimized for the needs of mobile computing and development, Qualcomm application processors are designed to be embedded into a variety of IoT and edge use cases. Our application processors offer high performance, low power consumption and integrated connectivity to help you invent devices that are more aware, intelligent, and interactive.

Wherever you are in your embedded development effort – whether prototyping new innovations or scaling production for growing opportunities – our application processors support a clear deployment path. Starting from development kits and single-board computers, you can scale up to customer solutions, integration services and production-ready System-on-Modules (SOMs). The first step is choosing which application processor best supports your needs.
