QUALCOMM Incorporated designs, develops, manufactures, and markets digital communications products and services. The company engages in the development and commercialization of a digital communication technology called CDMA (code division multiple access). It owns intellectual property applicable to products that implement any version of CDMA, including patents, patent applications, and trade secrets. The company also engages in the development and commercialization of OFDMA (orthogonal frequency division multiple access) technology for which it owns intellectual property. In addition, the company develops and commercializes various other major technologies used in handsets and tablets that contribute to end-user demand. It owns intellectual property related to these technologies. The company’s products principally consist of integrated circuits (also known as chips or chipsets) and system software used in mobile devices and in wireless networks. It also sells other products and services, which include integrated circuits for use in wired devices, primarily broadband gateway equipment, desktop computers, and streaming media players; software products and content enablement services for wireless operators; and products designed for the implementation of small cells. Segments The company has three segments: QCT (Qualcomm CDMA Technologies), QTL (Qualcomm Technology Licensing), and QSI (Qualcomm Strategic Initiatives). QCT This segment develops and supplies integrated circuits and system software based on CDMA, OFDMA, and other technologies for use in voice and data communications, networking, application processing, multimedia, and global positioning system products. QCT’s integrated circuit products are sold and its system software is licensed to manufacturers that use the company’s products in wireless devices, primarily mobile phones, tablets, laptops, data modules, handheld wireless computers and gaming devices, access points and routers, data cards, and infrastructure equipment; and in wired devices, primarily broadband gateway equipment, desktop computers, and streaming media players. The company’s mobile station modem (MSM) integrated circuits, which include the mobile data modem, Qualcomm single chip, and Qualcomm Snapdragon processors, perform the core baseband modem functionality in wireless devices providing voice and data communications, as well as multimedia applications and global positioning functions. In addition, the company’s Snapdragon processors provide advanced application and graphics processing capabilities. The company designs both the baseband integrated circuit and the supporting system, including the RF (radio frequency), PM (power management), and connectivity devices. The company’s portfolio of RF products includes Qualcomm front end radio front end components that are designed to simplify the RF design for LTE (long term evolution) multimode, multiband mobile devices, reduce power consumption, and improve radio performance. QCT’s system software enables the other device components to interface with the company’s integrated circuit products and is the foundation software enabling manufacturers to develop devices utilizing the functionality within the integrated circuits. QCT offers a portfolio of products, including both wireless device and infrastructure integrated circuits, in support of CDMA2000 1X and 1xEV-DO, as well as the EV-DO Revision A/B evolutions of CDMA 2000 technology. Leveraging its expertise in CDMA, the company also develops and offers integrated circuits supporting the WCDMA (wideband CDMA) version of third generation (3G) for manufacturers of wireless devices. Approximately 90 device manufacturers have selected its WCDMA products that support global system for mobile communications (GSM)/general packet radio service (GPRS), WCDMA, high-speed downlink packet access, high-speed uplink packet access, and (high speed packet access) HSPA+ for their devices. QCT also sells multimode products for the LTE standard, which offer backward compatibility to existing 3G technologies. The company’s integrated circuit products are included in a range of device
