Qualcomm have announced they are to release a development board based on the Qualcomm Snapdragon 410 processor, called the DragonBoard 410c, later this year. The DragonBoard 410c contains the same quad core, 64-bit, 1.2 GHz Qualcomm Snapdragon 410 processor that we’ve seen in a number of lower and mid-range Android smartphones and tablets. Here, the processor is combined with the Adreno 306 GPU (clocked at up to 400 MHz) with a single memory slot. The board is approximately the size of a credit card and contains onboard 802.11b/g/n WiFi, Bluetooth, FM radio and GPS location. The 410c is compliant with the 96Boards Consumer Edition specification, which means it’s ideal for enabling embedded computing products, such as Internet of Things products. Qualcomm’s marketing information explains that the DragonBoard could be used for anything from robots to medical devices to vending machines and casino gaming consoles, but adds that “the DragonBoard 410c is designed to support rapid software development, education and prototyping.” The hardware fits onto a board the size of a credit card, so could easily fit into these sorts of products but it is too large for most conventional wearables.
