Qualcomm Technologies, Inc. (NASDAQ: QCOM) reported the addition of Snapdragon Ride Flex SoC to that Snapdragon digital Chassis. The Flex SoC is built to support mixed criticality workloads across heterogenous compute resources that allow for the digital cockpit, ADAS and AD functions to co-exist. 

The Flex SoC category is compatible with a broad portfolio of SoCs within the Snapdragon Digital Chassis Platform.  With optimization that is directed towards performance scalability from entry level to premium high end central compute-systems, providing flexibility to automakers to choose the proper performance points for their vehicle tiers.

“We continue to remain at the forefront of automotive compute innovation, and as we enter the era of Software Defined Vehicles, the Snapdragon Ride Flex SoC family defines a new setpoint for high-performance power-optimized mixed-criticality architectures,” said Nakul Duggal, senior vice president and GM, automotive, Qualcomm Technologies, Inc. “We are making it easier and more cost effective for automakers and Tier-1s to embrace the transition to an integrated, open, and scalable architecture across all vehicle tiers with our pre-integrated suite of hardware, software, and ADAS/AD stack solutions while enabling the ecosystem to differentiate on our platforms with an accelerated time-to-market advantage.”
