About the company

Billions, maybe trillions of times a day…

That’s how often people around the world likely grab for their smartphone- and all that incredible stuff a phone can do that keeps people reaching for it multiple times a day- Qualcomm invented the stuff that made that stuff possible.

Who is Qualcomm, and what do we do? We are engineers, scientists and business strategists. We come from different countries and diverse cultures, speak different languages and offer unique perspectives. Together, we focus on a single goal—to lead the way to a new era of intelligent, connected devices.

Qualcomm’s technologies powered the smartphone revolution by connecting the phone to the Internet, and now we are changing everything about everything else. We pioneered 3G and 4G, propelling mobile to the forefront of the technology world, and now, we are leading the way to 5G that will connect billions more. Our products revolutionize industries from automotive and IoT to healthcare and data-centers, and are allowing millions of devices to connect with each other in new ways never imagined.

We've been called dreamers, inventors, rebels, risk takers, pioneers and geeks. We dream big. We invent bigger. Most importantly, we often do what many think is impossible in the name of innovation.
