IFC6410: Snapdragon S4 Pro-based single board computer

IFC6410 is a single-board, SoC computer powered by Qualcomm’s Snapdragon S4 Pro processor, the same processor that powers Google’s Nexus tablet computer and several other mobile devices.

I’ve become interested in single-board computers that are not controlled by an industry monopoly because I think they present the best technical opportunity to break the strangle-hold that Microsoft has on hardware and hardware vendors.

Efforts are underway to see how we can take advantage of these Pico-ITX form-factor single-board, SoC computers. I just profiled the EMB-2500 from Habey USA. It looks like a nice unit and I might be able to get my hands on a test unit.

This 1.7 GHz quad core Snapdragon S4 Pro-powered unit looks good too. It’s also production-ready, so you can order one – for $149. It’s manufactured by Inforce Computing, an embedded hardware vendor with offices in Bangalore, India, and Fremont, California USA.

Here are some of the specs (detailed specs here):

  • Krait CPU, 4-core. Independent clock-scaling per core
  • Gigabit Ethernet, 802.11 b/g/n WiFi and Bluetooth 4.0
  • Micro SD card connector, 4 GB eMMC, and external SATA
  • Micro HDMI and LVDS display connectors
  • up to 20MP camera support

As an end-user (non-dev), the EMB-2500 looks more appealing than this unit, but there’s lots of room for improvements for both units. Here’s the introductory video.
