3.5-inch SBC showcases octa-core Snapdragon 660

Aug 28, 2020 — by Eric Brown 5,891 views

Winmate’s 3.5-inch “IQ30” SBC runs Android 9.0 on an octa-core Snapdragon 660 with up to 4GB LPDDR4, LAN with optional PoE, 802.11ac, M.2 with SIM, 3x USB, and touchscreen support.

Winmate has posted a product page for an IQ30 SBC that runs Android 9.0 on Qualcomm’s Snapdragon 660 (SDA660). This is the first 3.5-inch spin we have seen of the 14nm fabricated SoC, which combines 4x 2.2GHz Kryo cores, 4x 1.84GHz cores, and a 650MHz Adreno 512 GPU. There are also Spectra and Hexagon co-processors, with the latter offering AI support.


Other Snapdragon 660 boards include Smart Wireless’ Inforce 6560 Pico-ITX SBC and LGA form-factor Inforce 6503 SoM and two products from Intrinsyc (Lantronix): the 50 x 25mm Open-Q 660 μSOM and the Open-Q 660 HDK dev board. Despite its larger size, the IQ30 lacks several key features of the Inforce 6560 SBC, such as dual MIPI-CSI interfaces and 4K DP signaling on the USB Type-C port. Yet, there are plenty of onboard headers for analog and digital audio, as well as industrial I/O such as DIDO and CANBus. Other highlights include up to 4GB RAM, WiFi-ac, and an M.2 slot with micro-SIM.
