Qualcomm Snapdragon 8 Gen 2 mobile platform.

Alongside the launch of Qualcomm’s premium-tier mobile platform for 2023 smartphones and beyond is a new developer toolkit for Snapdragon 8 Gen 2.

The Qualcomm Innovators Development Kit provides a hardware development kit, software tools, and a developer community for developers and makers interested in creating applications for the Snapdragon 8 Gen 2 mobile platform.

According to Qualcomm, the devkit seeks to "improve time-to-market for developers" by shrinking the time it takes to prototype products based on SD8G2’s platform. One particular perk is the Qualcomm AI Stack within the devkit, allowing developers to do on-device AI research for creating new AI-based applications.

The devkit is available to select universities and research institutions for a start, before expanding to developers working in security, multimedia, embedded systems computing, and other industries. The first universities and research institutes to get their hands on the devkit include Duke, MIT, and University of California San Diego.

If you’re a developer, you can sign up for the devkit or follow its announcements on Qualcomm’s official dev portal here.
