Qualcomm announces a lightweight Wireless AR Smart Glass, powered by Snapdragon XR2 platform


The device weighs only 115gms and has a dual micro-OLED binocular display with 1920 x 1080 (FHD) resolution per eye and frame speeds up to 90Hz.

With the Metaverse at the forefront of everyone’s consciousness, AR-VR glasses are evolving from toys to essential components of the experience.
Qualcomm Technologies, Inc., a leading leader of semiconductors and XR technology, today launched the Snapdragon XR2 Platform-powered Wireless AR Smart Viewer Reference Design.

The cordless reference design is crucial here, as it will allow suppliers to produce lightweight premium AR glasses.
Qualcomm’s Snapdragon XR2 Platform has been squeezed into a slimmer, smaller AR glass form factor while still delivering outstanding performance.
When compared to the AR Smart Viewer powered by the Snapdragon XR1 Platform, the AR reference design hardware developed by Goertek has a 40% thinner profile and a more ergonomically balanced weight distribution, meaning increased comfort for wearers and demonstrating that adding wireless does not always mean increasing the form factor of a device.

SeeYA’s dual micro-OLED binocular display supports 1920 x 1080 (FHD) resolution per eye and frame speeds up to 90Hz, as well as a no-motion-blur function for a smooth AR experience.
The smart viewer’s dual monochrome and RGB cameras offer six-degrees-of-freedom (6DoF) head tracking and hand tracking with gesture recognition for AR precision.

A wireless split processing architecture is also supported by the reference design, which distributes computing duties between a smartphone and the AR glass.
According to Qualcomm, the device achieves a 3ms delay between the smartphone and AR glass to deliver genuinely immersive AR experiences.

The reference design for the company’s FastConnect 6900 solution includes Wi-Fi 6 / 6E and Bluetooth connectivity, giving users the quickest commercially available speeds and extended range.
System integrators and application developers will also have access to Qualcomm’s new FastConnect XR Software Suite, which includes:

To enhance M2R2P (motion-to-render-to-photon) latency, reduce jitter, and avoid undesired interference, better management and preferential channel access for XR traffic is required.

For extended, sustained XR experiences, power options for low-power operation without affecting latency performance are available.

The following are the key features of the Wireless AR Smart Viewer Reference Design:

  • Very low-latency, yet high bandwidth solution
  • Dual 0.49” micro-OLED displays that provide 1920 x 1080 resolution at 90Hz refresh rate
  • Free Form Optics
  • Close to 40 degrees diagonal field-of-view (FoV)
  • Weight 115grams
  • Frame thickness 15.6mm
  • Three cameras for computer vision: Two 6DoF greyscale cameras for perception algorithms and tracking, and one RGB camera that allows users to stream what they see
  • Bluetooth connectivity for connecting something like an additional controller
  • Battery size – 650mAh
