Pico-ITX SBC runs Android 4.4 on Snapdragon 805

Filed under
Android

Inforce Computing unveiled an Android-ready Pico-ITX “IFC6540″ SBC that extends Qualcomm’s quad-core 2.5GHz Snapdragon 805 SoC with wireless, GPS, and more.

Like the Qualcomm Snapdragon 600 (S4 Pro) based, Android-ready IFC6410 SBC that Inforce Computing announced last year, the new IPC6540 uses the 100 x 70mm Pico-ITX form factor. (This week Inforce added a Linaro/Ubuntu Linux build pre-loaded on the IFC6410, sold at a discounted rate of $75, down from $149.)

Harish Pillay 9v1hp: My ESP8266-01 Adventure

Here’s a video of the RPi working via a vnc setup (right side of the video) and on the left side the Arduino code for a second setup with an Arduino Yun device. Because the RPi does not have analog input pins, and since i did not want to create additional circuity to do ADC (analog to digital conversion), I created a second setup with the Arduino Yun which does have both digital and analog input options. The Arduino Yun is an interesting part of the Arduino family (although, it has sadly been deprecated) as it has both the microcontroller portion as well as a bridge to a Linux operating system (albeit running OpenWRT meant for the Yun) which allows for the Yun to be accessed via a wifi/wired link. Unlike products that are proprietary, even though the Yun I have has been deprecated, the device is open sourced and the code etc are all available to be used and worked on. The power of open source, open collaboration wins here handily. Given the success of working with the Yun, I figured that the work is done. But no! I wanted to further optimise the setup as the Yun should really be a prototyping board rather than a deployed in production board mainly because, in my case, I only need two sensors that need to be accessed and the Yun has lots of other pins for a larger project.

Debian: Installing Debian Testing and Debian Developer Reports

  • Install Debian Testing ( the most recent bullseye weekly build ) with KDE Plasma on bare metal

    It appears that straight forward install Debian Testing via official ISO image at least in meantime hangs . Looks like "sddm" hangs attempting to pop up logging screen prompt

  • Ben Hutchings: Debian LTS work, November 2020

    I was assigned 16 hours of work by Freexian's Debian LTS initiative and carried over 4.5 hours from earlier months. I worked 11.5 hours this month, so I will carry over 9 hours to December.

  • Jonathan Carter: Free Software Activities for 2020-11

    This month just went past way too fast, didn’t get to all the stuff I wanted to, but managed to cover many essentials (not even listed here) that I’ll cover in follow-up posts. In particular, highlights that I’m thankful for are that we’ve selected the final artwork for Bullseye. We’ve also successfully hosted another two MiniDebConfs. One that was gaming themed, and a Brazilian event all in Portuguese! Videos are up on Debian’s PeerTube instance (Gaming Edition | Brazil) and on the DebConf video archive for direct download.

  • Paul Wise: FLOSS Activities November 2020

    This month I didn't have any particular focus. I just worked on issues in my info bubble.
