The Qualcomm Snapdragon 400 series processors are usually thought of as the power behind many Smartphone designs, but now to encourage its take-up by the community developing general embedded applications and IoE products Qualcomm have introduced a development board for that processor.
The DragonBoard 410c features advanced processing power, Wi-Fi, Bluetooth connectivity and GPS all packed into a board the size of a credit card. The DragonBoard 410c is designed to support rapid software development, education and prototyping, and is compliant with the 96Boards Consumer Edition specification. All this should make it ideal for enabling embedded computing and Internet of Everything (IoE) products, including the next generation of robotics, cameras, medical devices, vending machines, smart buildings, digital signage, casino gaming consoles and well, you name it.
