Now you can get a single-board computer with a Snapdragon 600 chip for just $75.
InForce Computing is running a sale on its IFC6410 Pico-ITX board. Order by May 18th and use the promo code “makerfaire” at checkout and you can get this little device for half its normal price.
The IFC6410 is basically a tiny desktop computer with a Snapdragon 600 quad-core processor,Adreno 320 graphics, 2GB of RAM, and 4GB of built-in storage.
It also has connectors for μSD card and SATA devices for additional storage. The device features built-in 802.11n WiFi, Bluetooth 4.0 and Gigabit Ethernet, mic and audio jacks, 2 USB ports, and 1 USB OTG port.
While the single-board computer should let you create a low-power Android desktop computer if that’s what you really want to do, it’s really aimed at developers and it features I/O interfaces including GPIO, UART, SPI, and I2C connectors.
Possible applications include digital signage, thin client systems, video conferencing or surveillance, or orbotics.
