Qualcomm has announced a credit card-sized development kit geared to support rapid software development and prototyping for commercialising the latest inventions and products. The DragonBoard 410c is intended as a low-cost development board based on the company's 64bit Snapdragon 410 processor.

The Snapdragon 410 processor claims to be a powerful enablement technology for embedded solutions providers to support off-the-shelf or custom system-on-modules, support and design services for commercial deployments. The DragonBoard 410c is anticipated to be made commercially available by third party distributors this summer.

It boasts quad-core ARM Cortex-A53 CPUs at up to 1.2GHz per core and 64bit capability, a Qualcomm Adreno 306 GPU with 400MHz high quality graphics, 1080p HD video playback and capture with H.264 (AVC), support for 13MP camera with wavelet noise reduction, JPEG decoder and other post-processing techniques done in hardware. The board also comes with LPDDR2/3 533MHz Single-channel 32-bit (4.2GBps) non-POP/ eMMC 4.51 SD 3.0 (UHS-I), Qualcomm's VIVE 802.11 b/g/n, Wi-Fi, Bluetooth and FM connectivity and integrated location through the Qualcomm IZat Gen8C GPS services.

The board supports both Android and Linux and can be expanded through one 40-pin low-speed connector (UART, SPI, I2S, I2C x2, GPIO x12, DC power), one 60-pin high-speed connector (4L-MIPI DSI, USB, I2C x2, 2L+4LMIPI CSI) and an analogue expansion connector (headset, speaker, FM antenna). I/O interfaces include HDMI full-size type A connector (1080p HD at 30fps), a USB 2.0 micro B (device mode only), two USB 2.0 type A (host mode only) and one micro SD card slot.
