Few units in stock


The Qualcomm Snapdragon 410E Core is a certified Rhomb.io Core Module based on the Qualcomm Snapdragon 410E System on a Chip (SoC). This thin and small board is easily pluggable on the Standard Rhomb.io Core Sockets of the series S400 and has been designed to be the brain of a Rhomb.io Modular System. It mainly accomplishes two different roles: power supply management and computing.

The main characteristic of this Core (as well as the other Rhomb.io Cores) is the full integration in such a small board of all the essential components to make the system work: CPU, GPU, RAM and power management. Users that mount this Core on a Rhomb.io Motherboard (or on a well-designed custom board) will find that the only thing they should provide is a proper power source and a mass storage device with an installed OS.

The processor embedded in this Core is a high performance compact SoC, designed to meet the demanding requirements of embedded computing applications with its high performance, energy efficiency, multimedia features, integrated connectivity and long-term support. The Qualcomm Snapdragon 410E Core is an ideal solution for Internet of Things (IoT) applications requiring computing horsepower and integrated Wi-Fi and Bluetooth connectivity such as connected homes, building automation, industrial control, digital signage, smart surveillance and other IoT devices.

The next table summarizes the main features of the Rhomb.io Qualcomm Snapdragon 410E Core.

Core specifications

The Qualcomm Snapdragon 410E is a Core integrated into the the Rhomb.io platform, and it has been developed with the IoT and Embedded Computing in mind. It integrates more and increasingly complex functions, while providing high performance, rich multimedia, low power consumption and support for multiple operating systems.

This board mounts a Qualcomm Snapdragon 410E SoC capable of deliver great computing capabilities with very low power consumption. Its high performance is achieved by four ARM Cortex A53 cores runnning at 1.2GHz, based on the architecture ARMv8-A, who offers an efficient 32-bit and 64-bit instruction set. The memory options include 1GB or 2GB high efficient LPDDR3 @ 533MHz.

The graphic core embedded in the SoC is the Adreno A306, and efficient GPU working at 400MHz with support of multiple APIs including OpenGL ES 3.0/2.0/1.1, OpenCL 1.1e for Android and DirectX 9.3 for Windows 10. It can manage MIPI displays with resolutions up to 1900x1200 and HDMI displays up to 1080p. The Miracast protocol is supported too, with resolutions up to 720p.

The tasks involving signal processing are runned by the Hexagon QDSP6 v5 core. Working at 691MHz, this DSP can handle significant compute workloads for image processing applications such as virtual reality, augmented reality, image processing, video processing, and computer vision in a very efficient way. Besides, it acts inside the SoC as a low power island for "always on" sensor-aware applications.

Two MIPI-CSI interfaces allows the Qualcomm Snapdragon 410E Core to support two cameras. The integrated Image Sensor Processor is capable to work with images up to 13MP, and the multimedia features include 1080p video capture at 30 FPS and H.264 Codec playback.

Unlike other Rhomb.io Cores, the Qualcomm Snapdragon 410E Core integrates a full Wi-Fi and Bluetooth interface with its own antenna connector. No external circuits or modules are required to provide wireless connectivity to this Core, making it particularly suitable for IoT and portable designs.

The power solution to this Core is provided by the uOMIC, a power management micro-module of TNFG. The uOMIC generates all voltages needed by the SoC, the memory and all other ICs in the Core. It also deliver multiple LDOs and BUCKs rails that can be used freely by the designers and users to power any other circuits on their motherboard designs.

The Qualcomm Snapdragon 410E Core shares two more characteristics with all other Core Modules in Rhomb.io Ecosystem: a 1-Wire factory-programmed ROM (with a unique 64-bit ID number) and a crypto-authentication device that ensures that the Core and the firmware it runs are not cloned, counterfeited, or tampered with.

Finally, the versatility of this Core is reflected in its multiple operating system support: Linux, Android and Windows 10.
