The above graph represents the Qualcomm quarterly revenue by type, starting from fiscal Q1 2002 to Q3 2020. The company generates a majority of its quarterly revenue from Equipment and services, followed by licensing fees, every quarter. In FY Q3 2020, over 77.5% of Qualcomm’s total revenue came from the equipment and services.

Qualcomm equipment and services revenue increased a modest 7.4% YoY in FY Q3 2020, to $3,794 million. The growth was primarily due to the $272 million in higher equipment and services revenues from the QCT (Qualcomm CDMA Technologies) semiconductor business.
On the other hand, Qualcomm licensing revenue declined a huge 82% YoY in the third quarter of fiscal 2020, to $1,099 million. It is important to note that out of $6.1 billion licensing revenue ($6,104 million to be precise) recorded in fiscal Q3 2019, about $4.7 billion revenue came from the company’s settlement with Apple and its contract manufacturers in April 2019. The decline in licensing revenue was primarily due to the $248 million in lower licensing revenues from the QTL (Qualcomm Technology Licensing) licensing business.
