Got it today after driving around and around at the airport trying to find the new home for DHL.

  • Its quite small but lots of functionality.
  • Meets 96Board CE (Consumer Electronics) standard
  • You don’t need to create a MIcroSD OS image as you flash it over micro-USB with a tool supplied by Qualcomm. See



  • You need a 12V supply with a very small connector. Actually the voltage range is quite wide, although hey suggest 12v for peripherals. It does not run from microUSB-PC. Off to Jaycar tomorrow for that.
  • Can’t find detailed dox on the board although there are videos. The second link above shows the low speed  connector pin-outs.
  • There is a high speed connector and a low speed (GPIO) one.
  • You will probably need GPIO voltage level shifter as it uses 1.8v. Two suggestions are: Adafruit 8-channel Logic Level Converter and SparkFun 4-channel Voltage-Level Translator  I wonder if the Freetronics Logic Level Converter Module works (I already have some) but its documentation mentions 2,2V?

Haven’t booted yet because of power plug issue!


Featuring the 64-bit capable Snapdragon 410 quad-core ARM® Cortex® A53 processor, the DragonBoard 410c supports Android 5.1, Linux based on Ubuntu and Windows 10. It offers advanced processing power, integrated WiFi, Bluetooth, and GPS, all packed into a board the size of a credit card. The board supports feature-rich functionality, including multimedia, with the Adreno™ 306 GPU for PC-class graphics, integrated ISP with up to 13 MP camera support, and 1080p HD video playback and capture with H.264 (AVC).

The DragonBoard 410c is an ideal foundation for prototyping and includes 1GB 533MHz LPDDR3 memory, 8GB eMMC 4.5 storage and a micro SD card slot, as well as one 40-pin low speed and one 60-pin high speed expansion connector, and the footprint for an optional analog expansion connector for stereo headset/line-out, speakers and analog line-in. The board can be made compatible with Arduino using an add-on mezzanine board.  Ref
