Intrinsyc has expanded its range of Qualcomm Snapdragon-based Open-Q computer-on-modules by opening the 64-bit functions of the Snapdragon 410.

Dubbed the Open-Q 410, the module is destined for Internet of Things uses like robotics, medical devices, set-top-boxes, wearables, vending machines, building and home automation, and industrial control.

The Snapdragon 410 system-on-chip, features four 1.2GHz Cortex-A53 cores, a 400MHz Adreno 306 GPU, and a Hexagon DSP.
It is the second computer-on-module we've seen to run a 64-bit, ARMv8 SoC after Intrinsyc's own Open-Q 8094. That one was based on the octa-core, Cortex-A57 and -A53 Snapdragon 810.

It runs on Android 5.0, Linux and Windows 10.

Intrinsyc installed 1GB of LPDDR3 RAM, and 8GB eMMC flash into the tiny footprint. You also get an Atheros WCN3620 chip with 2.4GHz 802.11b/g/n and Bluetooth 4.0, as well as an Atheros WGR7640 GPS/GNSS receiver with IZat Gen 8C, GLONASS, and Compass support. A power management IC (PMIC) is included as well.

There is a single USB 2.0 interface but no Ethernet. The module has dual MIPI-CSI interfaces for up to 13-megapixel cameras.

A MIPI-DSI display interface is included, which is spec'd out at 720p @ 60fps in the datasheet, and at 1080p record and decode in the announcement. (The carrier board provides an optional HDMI expansion module.) The Open-Q 410 also supports multiple audio codecs with noise cancellation, voice activation, and surround sound.

The Open-Q 410 module and associated Development Kit are available now for $79 and $299 (including module), respectively.
