During the launch event, the joint venture Semicondutores Avancados do Brasil, formed by QualcommTechnologies and USI, announced that Jaguariuna in the State of Sao Paulo, is the city where the Snapdragon SiP factory is expected to be built.

The factory's production is expected to begin in 2020 and should employ between 800 and 1,000 people with an estimated investment of USD  200 million over five-years.

The first commercial multi-chip semiconductor designed in Brazil, Snapdragon SiP is engineered to help to enable design efficiencies, reduce development costs and accelerate time to commercialisation for original equipment manufacturers (OEMs). Snapdragon SiP is the result of an ongoing collaboration between Qualcomm Technologies, USI and Brazil's federal government.
