Qualcomm Chipsets Come in Two Options

Qualcomm made sure to provide everyone with the option of having an entry-level and premium tier chipset. These were built for the sole purpose of supporting the emerging IoT devices and solutions that were made for industrial and commercial apps.

The first variant belongs to the QCS family -- an application processor that features Wi-Fi connectivity. The second type is classified under the QCM family, which has an integrated cellular connection.

Qualcomm QCS2290/QCM2290

These are powerful entry-level chipsets that provide reliable performance and power-saving features. It also has LTE connectivity, enhanced features, and additional memory support to assist low power consumption.

It has a decent Cortex A53 architecture, making it a cost-effective solution for delivering stunning performance, high graphics, smooth images, and updated power performance. It works wonders for industrial handheld, point of sales, camera, and tracking applications.

Qualcomm QCS4290/QCM4290

These chipsets provide the best mid-tier performance that you could ask for. It has the Kryo 260 CPU architecture that aims to increase speed and robustness for on-device performance.

It also has a 3rd generation Qualcomm AI Engine to deliver strong performance. Broad connectivity option and a dynamic camera.

Qualcomm QCS6490/QCM6490

This particular chipset has Kryo 585 CPU architecture, making it a heavy-duty processor for industrial and commercial IoT applications. It caters to warehousing, transportation, logistics management, connected healthcare, and across the retail point of sales kiosks.

Qualcomm QCS6490/QCM6490 can support 5G mmWave/Sub-6 GHz together with Wi-Fi 6E. It is a solution that enables the latest generation of tablets and handhelds, human-machine interface systems, and industrial scanners.

Qualcomm QCS8250

It is a premium-tier processor optimized to provide the maximum level of performance, enabling computer-intensive artificial intelligence at the edge, with the help of Qualcomm Wi-Fi 6 solutions and its 5G-ready connectivity.

This monstrous chipset also offers the latest Neural Processing Unit (NPU) that caters to ultra-intuitive AI, together with machine learning to utilize computer-intensive IoT applications. As a result, it enables video collaborations, smart cameras, AI hubs, smart retail, and connected healthcare.
