eInfochips Boosts Qualcomm's Robotics Accelerator Program Powered by Techstars With Eragon SoMs and Services

eInfochips Eragon Product Line Comprising of Development Kit, System-on-Module and its Design Services will be Leveraged by the Robotics Accelerator Participants to Kick Start their Robotics Applications

eInfochips (http://www.einfochips.com) is working with Qualcomm Incorporated and Techstars to engage with Qualcomm Robotics Accelerator powered by Techstars participants to bring their innovative ideas to life. Qualcomm has selected 10 robotics companies that will be participating in the four-month mentorship-driven startup program to focus on building the next generation of robots and intelligent machines. eInfochips' team is providing support and resources to the accelerated companies to help build the next generation of intelligent machines.

Robots are no longer just the business of research laboratories and secretive corporate divisions. With emerging innovative technologies, the next generation robots will soon surprise us by enabling Robots to do things that people thought were impossible. The support for Robot Operating System (ROS) on Qualcomm Snapdragon processors will enable functionalities such as interpretation, machine learning, artificial intelligence, facial and gesture recognition, voice command operation etc. These platforms aim to provide an integrated, low power solution for multiple robotics applications and will extend the processors applicability for diverse selection of products, from drones to toys and to home appliances. Qualcomm Snapdragon is a product of Qualcomm Technologies, Inc., a subsidiary of Qualcomm Incorporated.

"We are excited to see what this new batch of companies will achieve with help from eInfochips especially given their deep expertise in Snapdragon platforms and their sophisticated engineering capabilities," said Charles Bergan, Vice president of engineering for Qualcomm Technologies, Inc.

eInfochips has strong expertise in system software along with Snapdragon processors and has developed proof of concepts and demo applications for robotics. In addition to the engineering support services for the Robotics Accelerator companies, eInfochips also has to offer Eragon product line comprising of system on modules, development kits based on Snapdragon 600 and 410 processors. The latest Eragon 410 is an ultra-small (35mm x 26mm) System on Module (SoM) with low power consumption and superior multimedia experience and processing capability makes it an ideal building block for robotics application.

Parag Mehta, Chief Marketing and Business Development Officer at eInfochips said, "We are excited to be part of the Robotics Accelerator and are helping the start-ups in development by providing development kits and design services. eInfochips along with Qualcomm will play a critical role in driving this innovation forward."
