– Collaboration with a Global Semiconductor Leader
– Enables Easier and Faster Integration of ALIIS AI Software with Device Makers
– Qualcomm® Snapdragon™ Mobile Platforms are Widely Used by Smartphone Manufacturers Worldwide
Vancouver, Canada – April 20, 2020 – NexOptic Technology Corp. (“NexOptic” or the “Company”) (TSX VENTURE: NXO) (OTCQB: NXOPF) (FSE: E3O1), an innovator in optics and Artificial Intelligence (AI), is pleased to announce that it has been selected to join the Qualcomm® Platform Solutions Ecosystem. Joint initiatives have already begun, optimizing ALIIS for select Qualcomm® Snapdragon™ mobile platforms with support from Qualcomm Technologies’ AI and camera solution experts.
Qualcomm Technologies, Inc. is the world’s leading wireless technology innovator and a driving force behind the development, launch, and expansion of 5G.
“I’m pleased with the level of enthusiasm shown by both sides during the formalization of our collaboration,” said Rich Geruson, Chairman of NexOptic. “Working with a global semiconductor leader like Qualcomm Technologies is a big achievement and the most efficient way for NexOptic to gain a major foothold in the mobile industry.”
While NexOptic and each original equipment manufacturer (OEM) retains control over the choice to license this technology, the optimized version of ALIIS will significantly reduce the integration cost to device makers making it easier and faster to implement NexOptic’s state-of-the-art solutions on Snapdragon-based commercial devices. In the future, global OEMs requiring premium imaging enhancement will have direct access to NexOptic’s industry-leading machine learning imaging solutions optimized for use on select Snapdragon mobile platforms.
