Leading Chip maker Qualcomm has acquired certain assets of EPOS Development (EPOS), a developer of ultrasound technologies for input solutions, including pen, stylus and gesture recognition. Qualcomm reckons that the acquired assets will further strengthen and differentiate Snapdragon processor. The acquisition will also help Qualcomm improve user experiences for smartphones, tablets and e-readers running on Snapdragon processors.

EPOS team members who are joining Qualcomm will be integrated into Qualcomm Israel’s R&D team and will be focused on delivering new mobile device and service capabilities. EPOS is based in Hod Hasharon, Israel and has developed digital positioning technology that enables device manufacturers to integrate advanced user input capabilities into a wide range of consumer devices.

The technology developed by the EPOS technology is based on the digital transmission of ultrasonic waves that facilitates precise tracking by a receiver to enable multiple applications. With the EPOS’ ultrasound, Qualcomm aims to provide digital pen/stylus reference designs to help accelerate adoption of this technology in the consumer, enterprise and education markets.
