Qualcomm Snapdragon 600E, 410E to Power the Smart Home

...

Qualcomm is doubling down on its presence in the Internet of Things market with the Snapdragon 600E and 410E processors, which are designed for embedded applications like set-top boxes and point-of-sale systems, as well as the many IoT products expected to hit store shelves in the coming months and years.

The announcement is part of a broader push by Qualcomm to expand its presence in the embedded and Internet of Things industries. The Snapdragon line, which is best known for powering a slew of Android smartphones and tablets, includes boards, modules, and processors that work in a wide range of products, including smart home devices and drones.

This time around, however, Qualcomm has added a wrinkle to its launch: for the first time ever, the company is making Snapdragon processors available through distributors. It's kicking things off with Arrow Electronics, but will expand to other distributors as time goes on. Qualcomm says the move should help it make enough processors available to the many manufacturers of embedded and Internet of Things products.

"The introduction of Snapdragon 600E and 410E offers a broad range of product options," David West, senior vice president at Arrow Electronics said in a statement. "Arrow looks forward to offering Qualcomm Technologies' Snapdragon processors and complementing them with the full range of parts and engineering services we can offer to help customers through commercialization."

The Snapdragon 600E is the more powerful of the duo, featuring a quad-core 1.5GHz Qualcomm Krait 300 CPU. It also runs with the Qualcomm Adreno 320 GPU and Qualcomm's Hexagon DSP. It supports Bluetooth and up to 802.11ac wireless.

The Snapdragon 410E has a 1.2GHz quad-core CPU and the Adreno 306 GPU. Like the 600E, the 410E supports Bluetooth, but tops out at 802.11n wireless.

According to Qualcomm, the Snapdragon 600E is ideally suited for use cases across storage and HDMI-connected devices, while the 410E is designed for smart homes, digital signage, and other products.
