Qualcomm Snapdragon Processor

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.

Hya, after stints as a quantum researcher at Georgia Tech Quantum Optics & Quantum Telecom Lab, and the University of Maryland Joint Quantum Institute, I’m now working on superconducting qubit quantum processors at Bleximo. I’ll be speaking during Algorithm Conference in Austin, Texas, July 16 – 18, 2020. Meet me there and let’s chat about progress and hype in quantum computing.
