Snapdragon-based COM supports extreme temperatures

Variscite announced a COM based on Qualcomm’s 1.7GHz quad-core Snapdragon APQ8064 SoC, supported with Android and Linux, and usable from -40 to 85°C.

The VAR-SOM-SD600 builds upon the same Snapdragon APQ8064 system-on-chip as another computer-on-module announced this week: CompuLab’s CM-QS600. Qualcomm’s 1.7GHz, quad-core SoC is also known as the S4 Pro, and Variscite refers to it under the broader Snapdragon 600 nomenclature. The Snapdragon APQ8064 is equivalent to a quad-core Cortex-A15-based SoC, featuring a quartet of 28nm-fabricated 1.7GHz “Krait” cores with 11-stage pipeline and out-of-order execution. The Krait cores are accommodated by 2MB of L2 cache, an integrated Adreno 320 GPU, and a 500MHz “Hexagon” QDSP6V4 DSP (digital signal processor).
