Inforce Develops a Pico-ITX System with Snapdragon S4 Pro

By - Source: InForce | B 4 comments

Inforce’s IFC6410 aims to “provide consumers with the perfect foundation to create innovative computer systems.”

Indian manufacturer Inforce has launched the IFC6410, a compact Pico-ITX motherboard that measures just 100 x 170 mm and is equipped with a Qualcomm Snapdragon S4 Pro “Krait” quad-core processor locked at 1.7 GHz, 2 MB L2 cache memory, and 2 GB of DDR3 RAM.

Given its small form factor, the motherboard features an impressive array of connectivity options including Gigabit LAN, eSata, microHDMI, LVDS, HD Audio and a microphone. Also included is 5 GB of eMMC storage, 802.11 b/g/n WiFi, and Bluetooth 4.0. Additionally, the system features out-of-the-box support for both Android and Linux operating systems, which permits it to be employed in a wide range of situations, including potentially serving as an HTPC running XBMC.

All things considered, the most remarkable aspect of the IFC6410 is still its remarkable retail price of only $149. The system’s launch video is available after the break.

    Isn't ATX/ITX restricted to x86 though?

    Pico-ITX is a VIA standard introduced in 2007. It became a SFF-SIG standard in 2008.

    ATX/ITX are just form factors that specify board sizes, mounting hole locations and power connector pinout/voltages.

    If you design electronics and do not want to make a custom enclosure for it, you can build it to ATX/ITX/whatever spec to make it fit in a standard box instead of designing your own enclosure + mains PSU. It may be based around an ARM CPU, Power CPU, T4 CPU, FPGA or whatever else... heck, it could even be a non-digital device like an amplifier or just a space heater disguised as a PC.

    You can put whatever you want in those boxes. The standards are only intended to make enclosures mechanically and electrically interchangeable with minimal hassle.

    atx/itx is a form factor standard. as long as it fits, you can cram anything there.
