An inexpensive yet powerful and feature-rich development board based on Qualcomm’s SnapdragonTM APQ8060 processor, the Snapdragon APQ8060-based DragonBoard is available from Bsquare. This development tool features exposed connectors, adapters and expansion headers that allow 3rd party software developers, application developers and components suppliers to innovate within the growing open source development community.
DragonBoard is an open board designed to be an easy-to-use platform with the Qualcomm Snapdragon APQ8060 processor (excluding the WWAN capability). DragonBoard includes an applications processor (APQ8060), a sensor daughter card and RF (Wi-Fi and Bluetooth Technology) daughter card – all of which will be pre-installed on the carrier board. The carrier board has a large number of test points and connectors like JTAG, ethernet, and miniUSB that enables a deep level of development, testing and expansion. For an additional cost, a peripheral kit is available which includes a battery, earphone, 1MP/5MP camera and a 480x800 display/touchscreen.
