DragonBoard 410c 64-bit ARM Development Board in Stock for $75

There has been a few 96Boards announced so far, and a Banana Pi96 could soon be launched, as LeMarker has just joined the Linaro Community Board Group, but so far the board that generated the most buzz was Qualcomm Dragonboard 410c, but at the time pricing was not officially disclosed, although a $75 target price was posted in several blogs. And now it seems Qualcomm 64-bit ARM board indeed costs $75, as it is listed for that price on Arrow Electronics website with a few pieces in stock.

Qualcomm_Dragonboard_410cDragonboard 410c specifications have also been further detailed:

  • SoC- Qualcomm Snapdragon 410 (APQ8016) quad-core ARM CortexA53 @ 1.2 GHz with Adreno 306 GPU @ 400MHz
  • System Memory – 1GB LPDDR3 @ 533MHz, Single-channel 32-bit (4.2GBps)
  • Storage – 8GB eMMC 4.51 + micro SD 3.0 (UHS-I)
  • Video Output – HDMI up to 1080p
  • Video Playback [email protected] HD video playback and capture with H.264 (AVC), and 720p
    playback with H.265 (HEVC)
  • Connectivity – Integrated 802.11 b/g/n, Bluetooth 4.1, GPS with on-board antenna
  • USB – 2x USB 2.0 host ports, 1x micro USB port (device only).
  • Camera – Support for 13 MP camera with Wavelet Noise Reduction, JPEG decoder, and other post-processing techniques done in hardware
  • Expansion:
    • 1x 40 pin low speed expansion connector – UART, SPI, I2S, I2C x2, GPIO x12, DC power
    • 1x 60 pin high speed expansion connector – 4L-MIPI DSI, USB, I2C x2, 2L+4LMIPI CSI
    • Footprin for optional analog expansion connector – Headset, Speaker, FM antenna
    • Arduino compatibility through mezzanine board
  • Misc – Power, reset and volume buttons. 6 LEDS (4x user, 1x Wifi, 1x Bluetooth)
  • Power Supply – 6.5 – 18V DC input
The board will run Android 5.1 and Ubuntu developed in collaboration with Linaro, and Windows 10 support is also being worked on.
I have not been able to check shipping (requires registration), but it will ship from the US, so it should mostly be interesting for people based in North America, until other distributors sell the board, or Arrow gets stock in Europe or other parts of the world.

  1. Sure, the price is not that bad but I want 2 GB of RAM and more MHz on those cores for which I’m of course willing to pay more.

  2. What’s the benefit of a 64 bits platform with less than 4 GB RAM ? (it’s not only useless, I guess it must also have an impact on performance as 64 bits pointers mean more cache-miss…). Maybe just for self-teaching / testing 64 bit code ?

  3. In that case, it mostly serves as setting the price for the competing CPU boards.
    If you can get a board with 64 bits Snapdragon, it means competing boards must be cheaper!

  4. i wish the have the use one of the Chinese soc that would likely bring the cost down
    or at least the chinese vendor like cubietech , orange pi releasing a 96board form factor.
    qualcomm based product is relatively expensive, compared to Allwinner (H3 specifically, maybe A64) solutions

  5. Do you guys think this board is expensive ?
    When compared to raspberry pi 2 and odroid c1, i don’t think so.

    Don’t forget the snapdragon 401c includes a 8 GB eMMC chip, wifi, bluetooth and gps.
    Another thing i like is the linux open source GPU driver support : freedreno.

    It lacks an ethernet port though, maybe more usb ports too.
    And probably no VPU support under linux, that would be bad imho.

    Kind of forgot about that………. hahaha
    and “it’s not been officially announced yet”, soo it can be a vaporware, who can say

    it is RELATIVELY expensive. it is not expensive when you r comparing performance and feature, but when you use price/deivce it is expensive.
    for me its like 2 RPi2 = 2 OrangePI2 = ~8 C.H.I.P. = 1 Dragonboard
    me sayz, the more the merrier.
    i use it for high volume, small load application and i dont need 8 GB eMMC chip bluetooth and gps., so this board not the right one for me. after all, it depend on your usage,

    i just want all my boards to use the same form factor, so its easier to find accessories, like cases

    Cool link. I can also see they have a $35 LeMaker Guitar for $25. They somehow compare it to R-Pi2, but Guitar looks like a system-on-module, not a standalone board.

  8. Orange Pi PC is quad core 1.6Ghz H3 development board with only $15. We are producing Orange Pi PC. We will release it in about 20 days.

    Thanks, but that link asks me to register to Weibo, I must have done it once, but I forgot the password, and it might require a mobile phone number (which I don’t have right now).
