$149 Inforce Computing IFC6410 Board Features Qualcomm APQ8064 Quad Core SoC

I’ve only seen Qualcomm SoC in smartphones and tablets, as well as their own development boards, but Inforce Computing has just changed that thanks to IFC6410 single-board computer powered by Qualcomm Snapdragon S4 Pro APQ8064 quad core krait processor @ 1.7GHz. This Pico-ITX SBC comes with 2GB RAM and 4GB eMMC flash, HDMI out, Gigabit Ethernet, Wi-Fi and more.

The company will provide board support packages for both Linux and Android. You may want to watch the board introduction video below for an overview of the board.

IFC6410 is a production-ready board with compliant with RoHS and WEE standard. It will be available in May, but you can pre-order it now, or rather register your interest, for just $149 (+shipping) via IFC6410 page. With the cancellation of OPENBRIX Zero board, this is the cheapest “Cortex A15 class” board that I know of (Even though technically speaking Krait is not Cortex A15, but the performance is about the same), and with 4 cores it will even more powerful than the Arndale board.

Hi,
please change the title and text. Basically speaking APQ8064 is not Cortex-A15. Qualcomm licenses just ARMv7 ISA and develops its own chips (Marvell does the same too) which is in contrast with majority of others ARM SoC manufacturers which are using ARM developed cores (like A9/A7/A8/A15). So, this is definitely not Cortex-A15!
Well, don’t be confused by Inforce Computing marketing speech “A15 class processing powered”. ๐Ÿ™‚
Thanks!
Karel

You are welcome! And thanks for really nice post. It would be interesting to see for example some compilation benchmarks between real A15 (Arndale) and this APQ8064…

FYI:
Marvell Feroceon = 1.2DMIPS/MHz
ARMv6 ARM11(Raspberry Pi) = 1.25DMIPS/MHz
ARMv7 Cortex-A5 = 1.57DMIPS/MHz,
ARMv7 Cortex-A7 = 1.9DMIPS/MHz,
Qualcomm Scorpion = 2.1MIPS/MHz
ARMv7 Cortex-A9 = 2.5DMIPS/MHz,
Qualcomm Kraits = 3.3DMIPS/MHz,
ARMv7 Cortex-A15 = 3.5->4.1DMIPS/MHz
ARMv8Cortex-A53 = 2.3DMIPS/MHz
ARMv8 Cortex-A57 = 4.1-476DMIPS/MHz

It’s pity there’s no JTAG adapter. Then it would be one hell of a board ๐Ÿ™‚

I’m sorry. I did mean QCA6234. Still can’t find any information on it.

It does have JTAG connectors, download the board’s datasheet, there’s a picture there of the board itself, on the left side you can clearly see the connector pins with the sign “JTAG” next to them ๐Ÿ™‚

when i click preorder avast kicks in and warns me about a virus i clicked on a couple of them and got the same result

http://www.inforcecomputing.com/product/moreinfo/ifc6410.html

iam no developer but i want one to connect to my tv and use as a media player i think it would be better then any tv dongle
thats out right now i think the best dongle would be one based on rk3188 and this s4 pro would eat it alive
