SMART Wireless Computing® (part of SMART Global Holdings), a leading provider of Snapdragon™ embedded computing platforms and solutions, today announced a compact compute module in an LGA package, Inforce 6503. Inforce 6503 enables advanced visual computing, enhanced graphics, and on-device machine learning capabilities featuring the Qualcomm® Snapdragon™ 660 processor.
The Inforce 6503 SoM powered by the Snapdragon 660 Octacore processor brings true-to-life colors and lifelike visuals coupled with AI-enabled user experiences. This computes module combines the heterogeneous computing capabilities of the Snapdragon™ SoCs with 2×2 802.11ac Wi-Fi with DBS, Bluetooth 5.x, haptics, a full-featured USB-C interface with UltraHD display capability and ample internal memory to make it a complete 4K encode/decode systems. With support for dual MIPI-CSI cameras, depth perception use-cases like proximity detection, semantic segmentation, autonomous driving, and facial recognition can be enabled with ease on systems built on these SoMs.
The SoM comes in an ultra-small form factor of 40mm x 35mm in an LGA package and is light-weight. It is a perfect fit for rugged applications that requires sturdy mechanical fitment and a need for low vertical profiles. Target end-uses that can benefit from these capabilities include rugged connected displays, high-end industrial IoT, wearables, portable healthcare with advanced imaging requirements, and connected cameras’ domains. Optional SKUs support extended operating temperature range and EMI shielding for better RF noise protection, while also doubling up as a medium for heat spreading and dissipation to further improve performance. SMART wireless offers a reference carrier board design with this SoM to help create and optimize your products with the shortest turnaround time.
An Android BSP releases package comes pre-loaded on these products from SMART Wireless with committed periodic upgrades supporting all available peripherals.
