If you ever wanted to develop applications for the latest Qualcomm Snapdragon processor, Intrinsyc is always the first company to provide Snapdragon hardware development kits and we’ve covered many over the years including Open-Q 845 HDK and Open-Q 855 HDK.
The company has recently been bought by Lantronix, a provider of solutions for the Internet of Things (IoT) and Out of Band Management (OOBM), and we covered one of their products – an RJ45 connector running Linux – over 6 years ago.
Lantronix Snapdragon 865 Mobile Hardware Development Kit is the first devkit announced since the acquisition. The board is powered by the latest Snapdragon 865 (SM8250) processor combined with 6GB LPDDR5 RAM, 128GB UFS 3.0 storage. The development kit currently supports Android 10, but it will be one of the first hardware to officially run Android 11 just previewed by Google.
