The new expansion provides OEMs and ISVs with added resources. These include software development tools and support that allow them to provide increased differentiation on multimedia features via the integrated Hexagon DSP in Snapdragon S4 processors.

The Hexagon Access Program now includes select Snapdragon S4 processors including the APQ8064, MPQ8064, MSM8960, APQ8060A, MSM8260A, MSM8660A, MSM8930, APQ8030, MSM8630, MSM8230, MSM8227 and MSM8627.

Both OEMs and ISVs can optimize the features and performance of their multimedia software for execution on the fully integrated audio-video acceleration hardware in Snapdragon processors. Program participants will have access to software development tools that the OEM or ISV can utilize to compile or hand-code their proprietary algorithms.

The program offers the ability to integrate proprietary algorithms. A comprehensive set of multimedia baseline features is provided standard with the Snapdragon platform, and the Hexagon Access Program enables the customization and augmentation of the baseline feature sets and usage models included on Snapdragon processors.
