Compex Core Competencies

Original Equipment Manufacturing (OEM)

While Qualcomm reference designs are good performance references, commercial requirements may detect differences in form factor, power consumption. We adapt the reference designs to OEM models based on our experience with commercial requirements. These may involve size and functionality compromises but often include application-specific functionalities, such as 5G/LTE modem integration. Our OEM products are often found in our customers’ commercialized products.

Original Design Manufacturing (ODM)

Our customers come from many different industries with vastly different requirements. We meet customer-specific requirements with ODM designs. Such designs may involve special interfaces, special power supply requirements, operating under severe environments, unique antennas, or form factor/heat dissipation compromises. We also strive to add value to customers’ software in performance optimization and certification compliance.

Building Qualcomm Reference Design

We reproduce Qualcomm reference designs according to design files provided by Qualcomm. As a service provider of Qualcomm Authorized Design Center (ADC), we supply these reference design boards to customers for initial evaluations and software development.


With the expertise of the Compex software team, customers can tap into our experiences to modify or enhance proprietary hardware drivers and firmware user interfaces and develop features that add more values and differentiation to customers’ complete solution which target at their specific markets.

While Qualcomm’s proprietary driver is not made available as an open-source option, CompexWRT Software Development Kit (SDK), a firmware that’s based on OpenWRT and wireless driver derived from Qualcomm’s proprietary driver, can be provided to customers who choose to develop based on our OEM or ODM products.

Qualcomm Driver Porting

Customers who wish to use Qualcomm radios on non-Qualcomm platforms such as NXP, Marvell, and Intel platforms often encounter difficulties as the official Qualcomm drivers with the latest features are not on open source release.

Compex provides Basic Software Packages (BSP) for various non-Qualcomm platforms, allowing Qualcomm’s radio modules to work on platforms based on NXP, Marvell, and Intel processors, taking advantage of the well-polished features of the latest official Qualcomm drivers.
