Few things are as unwieldy as a handful of dimes. Some of us relegate them to piggy banks, and others keep them around for the times we can’t find the right size Phillips-head screwdriver. But for developers, OEMs and solutions providers, it’s now possible to turn something the size of a few errant Roosevelts into some Benjamins. At 26.5mm x 44mm, the compact Intrinsyc Open-Q 410 System-on-Module (SoM), based on the Qualcomm Snapdragon 410 processor, is now commercially available, featuring a host of customization possibilities positioned for creating innovative Internet of Things (IoT) products to connect people, places, things and ideas.
The big punch from the Open-Q 410 SoM is from the commercialization opportunities it provides. Many tinkerers, inventors, and entrepreneurs have been working on next-generation IoT devices: manufacturing robots that talk to each other and maximize energy usage, drones that can learn to fight forest fires, and signs in airports and bus stations that can identify someone’s purchasing habits and display relevant advertising. But the production-ready Open-Q 410 platform helps people take their inventions quickly from the garage to a finished product ready for distribution, answering the pervasive “what now” question that follows after the first successful test of an inventor’s Internet of Things creation.
The Open-Q 410 SoM is ideal for creating low-cost, high-performance embedded applications, mobile devices, and much more. It features the technological prowess of the Snapdragon 410, the backing of the Qualcomm development community, and an array of expert solutions from Intrinsyc that help reduce technical risk throughout the entire product development cycle, from design through to production and sales.
Intrinsyc’s volume pricing of the SoM is a perfect cornerstone for the high-volume production of IoT devices, helping turn developers and tinkerers into full-fledged OEMs. And since device developers can create a fully customized electronics design with custom interfaces, there’s no need for a time consuming ground-up electronics design, meaning OEMs of any size can quickly develop commercial-ready products.
On the technical side, the ultra-small Open-Q 410 SoM is positioned to capture virtually any application in IoT. In addition to the powerful 64-bit capable Snapdragon 410 processor, the SoM features GPS, Wi-Fi, Bluetooth, audio, picture and video capture and playback, and a comprehensive list of configurable IO that allows for many peripheral additions. The Intrinsyc Open-Q 410 development kit empowers engineers and developers to access next generation performance and power efficiency, enabling end products that are easily compatible with other IoT devices.
The Intrinsyc Open-Q 410 SoM can help put any OEM or developer looking to build IoT products on the fast track to commercialization, either with their own products or with products designed to be integrated within larger vertical IoT applications. So don’t let the small size fool you—think of all the possibilities this compact powerhouse System-on-Module can help you to create for the Internet of Things.
