Qualcomm Home Hub Platforms

A product of Qualcomm Technologies, Inc.

For developers delivering security-rich connected devices for the Internet of Things (IoT), Qualcomm Technologies, Inc., works with third-party distributors to make available the 212 and 624 Home Hub platforms, designed for Android Things where developers and OEMs can leverage the power of the Android Things development and partner ecosystems.

Qualcomm® Home Hub platforms are based on the our APQ8009 and APQ8053 systems-on-chip (SoCs). Each platform is built on Android Things and consist of a system-on-module (SoM), development board and a set of reference designs. The platforms are engineered to support ideal connectivity (Wi-Fi 802.11ac with 2x2 MU-MIMO, Bluetooth low energy 4.1), compute (8x ARM Cortex A53) and security features for rapid commercialization in the fast-evolving market of home devices.

Both platforms use Android Things to offer not only the convenience of Google Assistant but also a growing array of their cloud-based services like Google Cast, Google Duo, Google Maps and more.
