Inforce Computing launched 6309 micro single board computer powered by Snapdragon 410 processor, and compatible with 96Boards Dragon 410c board, a little over a year ago. The company has sent a newsletter promoting the launch of cost-down version with long term support equipped with Snapdragon 410E processor, and named Inforce 6309L.
Qualcomm Snapdragon 410E quad core ARM Cortex A53 processor with Adreno 306 GPU

Android Lollipop 5.1
Win10 IoT core
Both boards are pretty similar, except Inforce 6901L replaced the HDMI port with a mico HDMI port, and adds a MIPI CSI header. Cost down have been achieved by removing Ethernet, the PoE header, LVDS, and the optional interface for RS-485, as well as offering the SBC with commercial temperature grade (0 to 70 °C) by default. Some of the specifications not mentioned in the table include the supported voltage range (7-24V DC input), the presence of an RTC, and the signal on the expansion header: 1x I2C, 1x SPI, 1x I2S, 2x UART, and 20x GPIOs.
The board is available now starting at the price of $85 for a minimum order quantity of 100 units. More details can be found on Inforce 6309L product page. Note that while the page indicated the board comes with a “quad-core Snapdragon 410E processor which has a 10-year supply commitment from Qualcomm”, Inforce did not make any explicit commitment for the board.
