Which Processor is Right for You?

Snapdragon Processors are products of Qualcomm Technologies, Inc.

Qualcomm® Snapdragon™ processors were originally designed for mobile, but now can be embedded into virtually anything. Snapdragon processors support superior performance, low power consumption and integrated connectivity to make devices more aware, connected, intelligent and interactive.

Whatever stage of embedded development you’re at – whether prototyping new innovations, or scaling production to reach new customer opportunities – Snapdragon for embedded solutions support a clear deployment path starting with development kits and single-board computers and scaling up to customer solutions, integration services and production-ready, customizable System-on-Modules (SOMs). The first step is choosing which Snapdragon processor best supports your needs.

Snapdragon 410
The Snapdragon 410 processor for embedded computing offers high performance, rich multimedia, low power consumption and support for multiple operating systems (Android, Linux, Windows 10). It is ideal for Internet of Things use cases in smart homes, industrial automation, digital media players, smart surveillance and home appliances, and is designed for longevity.

Snapdragon 600
The Snapdragon 600 processor for embedded computing is the ideal processor for building advanced systems with multi-core performance and immersive 3D graphics. The energy-efficient Snapdragon 600 processor allows for long battery life and smaller industrial designs, and is designed for longevity.
