Despite their popularity with tablets and smartphones, I don’t see much developer community around Qualcomm Snapdragon processor, and only a few low cost development boards. One of them is Inforce Computing IF6410 pico-ITX board powered by Qualcomm Snapdragon 600 (APQ8064) quad core processor with 2GB RAM, 4GB eMMC flash, Gb Ethernet, Wi-Fi, Bluetooth, SATA, micro HDMI and LVDS video outputs, etc.., that normally sells for just $149.
But the company is having a promotion for $75 with the coupon code “makerfaire” until May 18, or until the 500 units they’ve reserved are sold out. Shipping is not included in the price, and you’ll have to add about $50 for Fedex delivery (It may be cheaper in the US) for a total of about $125, which still probably makes it the cheapest “Cortex A15 class” board that you can get. The board appears to only officially support Android, and if you want to run a Linux distribution you may need to so so within Android (TBC).
Thanks to adem for the tip.

I could not buy it I went all the way to the last page before payment but that was it could notgo past. If any one has any luck let me know
Ordered one. Any source code available somewhere?
Try this website:
i sent them i email asking about free shipment because it said if you use coupon there will be no shipment cost and they replied to me saying sorry it was a mistake from their behalf.
I do not see any source code on those websites.
Maybe try @ https://github.com/freedreno/freedreno/wiki/Ifc6410 for Fedora support, they point to kernel source code.
Anybody know if Snapdragon 600 can decode and encode multiple streams in same time?
You have to add the code “makerfaire” in shopping cart page first then head to checkout or else it will not ask you to enter the code.
Some guys have made a palletizer where IFC6410 board interfaces to the Arduino and the PC over WiFi and computes all the image processing algorithms with FastCV – http://p2z2systems.wordpress.com/research/snapdragon/
github for Android app – https://github.com/Commanders28/uwfastcvdemo
There are also accessories including a Pico-ITX enclosure – http://inforcecomputing.com/product/accessories.html
A few more projects and info are available in the latest myDragonBoard newsletter: http://hosted.verticalresponse.com/1793799/3f7617ce8e/579010729/460f3902ee/
