Mobile Connectivity Solutions

Good to go

Let’s face it. Most of us have some sort of connected device within arm’s reach – to stay in touch, get directions, send a Tweet, or get our groove on. All the reasons you bought a mobile device require some type of connectivity. Without it, life moves in slow motion.

Qualcomm Atheros, Inc. delivers the technologies that keep you moving. Fast web browsing with Wi-Fi. Real-time navigation. Hands-free calling with Bluetooth. Convenient mobile payments with NFC. And when you want to stop moving, our connectivity solutions can help you have fun with those devices, too. Streaming movies, gaming, video chatting and downloading music – wherever, whenever.

Qualcomm® Snapdragon™ all-in-one mobile processors, products of Qualcomm Technolgies, Inc., not only feature industry leading 3G and LTE, but also offer built-in Wi-Fi, location, Bluetooth and FM technologies to maximize your mobile experiences without draining your battery. We also offer a wide variety of solutions that provide the high-performance, low-power connectivity for devices without Snapdragon.
