During MWC2023, Qualcomm Technologies announced the launch of its second-generation Snapdragon automotive 5G modem and RF platform.

As Qualcomm Technologies' automotive modem and RF system, it delivers high-performance processing power and network capacity up to 200MHz to support reliable and low-latency connectivity for a safe, smart and immersive driving experience. Equipped with the latest 5G technology enhancements, owners can enjoy the comfort and convenience of the car, home and office in the same space.


Notably, the second-generation Snapdragon Automotive 5G modem and RF platform also supports satellite communications, introducing a whole new way of communication for the automotive industry.


Qualcomm has learnt that the Snapdragon Automotive 5G modem and RF platform supports the following advanced connectivity technologies:


Higher processing power, coverage and throughput with an integrated quad-core CPU and aggregated network bandwidth of up to 200MHz to deliver new service opportunities and support the most advanced connectivity technologies and speeds required for faster content streaming, online gaming and autonomous driving.


Increased support for automotive safety for mission-critical and emergency services that require network connectivity, such as next-generation emergency call systems (eCall) and support for satellite communications, ensuring ubiquitous connectivity and communications in remote and rural areas.


Reducing costs and requiring fewer components, the latest generation Snapdragon Automotive 5G modem and RF platform features a multi-core CPU to support applications running directly on the modem and a hypervisor to support segregated workloads for seamless connectivity and energy-efficient performance.


A new generation of advanced positioning engines improves positioning accuracy and robustness in a variety of environments, supporting emergency services, navigation, safety alerts and autonomous driving functions, enabling accurate positioning in the most challenging environments and enabling use cases such as high-definition mapping and automated parking.


Integrated Cellular Vehicle-to-Car (C-V2X) technology supports directly connected communications to enhance short-range safety and mobility services.


In-vehicle data transfer at rates of up to 1GB per second gives automakers the flexibility to migrate traffic from the in-vehicle Telematics Control Unit (TCU) to the infotainment system, Wi-Fi hotspots or other Telematics endpoints; ensuring seamless communication and uninterrupted Telematics services for passengers.


Automakers and the broader mobility ecosystem can also take advantage of the advanced capabilities of the second generation Snapdragon automotive 5G modem and RF platform to develop and deliver new advanced connected services, including:


Snapdragon Telematics Application Framework (TelAF), a unified development and deployment framework for the Snapdragon Vehicle 5G modem and RF system, with all the necessary components to reduce complexity when developing Telematics services that support 5G, location and security, and enhanced safety.


Snapdragon Vehicle-to-Cloud Services provide a comprehensive set of cloud and endpoint components that enable the automotive ecosystem to empower, manage and deploy new connected services developed on the Snapdragon In-Vehicle Connected Applications Framework. Vehicle-to-cloud services also provide secure data connectivity between the cloud and endpoints, utilising cloud-based APIs to develop consumer and fleet solutions on the system.


The second-generation Snapdragon automotive 5G modem and RF platform is said to be compliant with the 3GPP Release 16 specification and is being sampled by global automakers, with commercial availability expected later in 2023.
