Snapdragon – Mobile Development Kit

The SYS6440 was specifically designed for developers to create multimedia applications through this development platform complete with APQ8064 Chipset on Qseven module, supports up to 20MP Camera, Sensor Module, Battery, and a Multi-touch display. This platform is ideal for developers to utilize all the rich features of this Snapdragon S4 Pro Quad-core CPU. Processor and Memory

Inforce Computing has launched its SYS6440 Development Kit, powered by the Qualcomm Snapdragon™ S4 Pro APQ8064 processor from Qualcomm Technologies, Inc. More than 100 commercially available mobile devices use the Snapdragon S4 processor, and the SYS6440 is your opportunity to develop on the Snapdragon S4 for media-rich, embedded applications like video conferencing, thin clients, digital signage, head mounted displays, wearable computing, industrial machinery, medical devices and video surveillance.

The SYS6440 is a 170mm x 170mm Mini-ITX carrier board. It holds a Qseven system-on-module (SoM) with the Snapdragon™ APQ8064 processor, sensor board module, camera module, battery, MIPI-DSI multi-touch display and MIPI-CSI camera.

I’m bringing this kit to the attention of you embedded developers out there for several reasons:

  •  Parity with mobile computing devices. The application processors in mobile devices have been making huge strides in performance, multimedia and human interface; why shouldn’t embedded systems enjoy the same kind of excitement? The important thing about the SYS6440 is that you’re getting the performance improvements that come in the latest tablets and smartphones.
  • Higher performance.I’m talking about serious improvements, too. This is the first development kit built to give you access to:
  • Production-ready SoM. Suppose you sell industrial robots or digital signage built around embedded systems, and you want to start integrating a more-powerful processor into your product. This development kit is designed to allow you to prototype for Snapdragon without having to redesign your entire product around a new chipset; Inforce has already done all that work for you. You can test your applications and hardware against the SYS6440, then plug the SoM straight into a Qseven connector in your own product.

In this block diagram we’ve detailed all the resources you can access in the SYS6440:
