Inforce 6309L Board is Powered by Qualcomm Snapdragon 410E Processor with 10-year Availability

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.

Comparison table between Inforce 6309L board and DragonBoard 410C provided by the company:

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.
