The cast of companies ready to offer up smart home products at CES 2016 pretty much winds around the block.

Even Qualcomm is there at the Consumer Electronics Show in Las Vegas. The innovative maker of chips said this week its subsidiary, Qualcomm Technologies, is demonstrating a Smart Home Reference Platform, based upon Qualcomm’s Snapdragon 212 processor.

What that will offer, the company said, is a range of services, including computing, voice recognition, audio, camera, connectivity, and control capabilities for home control hubs and smart speakers.

At CES Qualcomm Technologies is demonstrating a prototype application in the form of a smart home assistant/hub. This prototype includes a full hardware design available to OEMs today.

“This Snapdragon 212 Smart Home Reference Platform gives our customers powerful capabilities that can help accelerate the use of high-end computing, voice recognition,  audio, display and camera throughout the smart home ecosystem,” said Raj Talluri, senior vice president, product management, Qualcomm Technologies, Inc.

A full list of the platform specs are at Qualcomm’s press site.
