4. What are the accessories available?
The website http://inforcecomputing.com/products/accessories.html lists all the available accessories. User guides are available for all relevant accessories.
5. What is the storage capacity of the Inforce641X? Is it expandable?
Please check on the exact product SKU for the pre-loaded software and available memory. Typically the on board storage (eMMC) capacity is 4GB expandable up to 64GB. Memory can be expanded by connecting a Micro-SD card or a SATA Hard drive. It is possible to draw power from the Power/Reset header available on board to drive the SATA hard disk. The available power is 5V and the current rating is in the range of 0.5A.
6. How powerful is the Inforce641X? What is the speed of the RAM?
The standalone Inforce641X provides quad core A15 class computing at 1.7Ghz with 2MB L2 cache. The GPU Adreno320 is capable of 90 GFLOPS of general purpose compute and provides support for OpenGL ES 3.0 (Halti) and OpenCL 1.2E. But note that these libraries are provided as binaries only.
The onboard DDR3 RAM operates at 533Mhz.There are 1GB and 2GB variants of the platform available.
AnTuTu scores for the Inforce 641X platform running Android is ~22000. All our Android releases are also validated with the Trepn™ Profiler to ensure that all cores are capable of operating at 1.7Ghz.
7. What types of displays are supported and at what resolution?
Primary LVDS up to WQXGA (2048 × 1536) 24 bpp @60 Hz refresh + Micro HDMI(1.4a) output of 1080p@60 Hz refresh on the Inforce 6410.
Primary dual-link MIPI-DSI up to WQXGA (2048 × 1536) 24 bpp @60 Hz refresh + Micro HDMI(1.4a) output of 1080p@60 Hz refresh on the Inforce 6412 are the displays supported. Note that these displays are not provided as peripherals with the Inforce641X. They can be purchased from http://inforcecomputing.com/products/accessories.html.
8. What are the capabilities of the video Decoder/Encoder?
Please refer to http://developer.android.com/guide/appendix/media-formats.html for supported codecs from Android.
9. What is the camera capability?
The camera interface to the Inforce6410is through a 4-lane MIPI_CSI and the maximum real-time sensor input resolution is 20MP in-line JPEG encode at 15 fps.Dual camera capability is supported some platforms (please check on the exact product SKU). Inforce platforms have been validated with the OV5645 camera module from OmniVision. Note that the camera is not provided as part of the Inforce6410 kit. It could be purchased as an accessory from http://inforcecomputing.com/products/accessories.html
10. How much power does the board draw? Is it possible to measure the power?
The Inforce 6410 is powered from a 5V/3A wall adaptor. The Inforce 6412 is powered from a 12V/2A wall adaptor. The total approximate power is 12W for both platforms. No, there are no test points made available to measure run-time power. But we do run the Trepn profiler
11. What are the audio capabilities?
Audio is available through HDMI, USB and speaker out. There is also a microphone for recording. The HDMI has an 8 channel audio with 7.1 channel surround sound, with support to Dolby digital plus, Dolby True HD and DTS-HD master.Some platforms has a combo jack for microphone and speaker out while these are separate on some other platforms.
12. What documents are provided? Are board design files also provided?
We provide datasheets and Hardware Reference Manual. Schematics are provided for the Inforce6440development system but not for the Inforce6410. Board design files are proprietary and thus not shared.
All software releases are accompanied with release notes, user guides and application notes that describe the installation procedure. Apart from these, all technical questions addressed to email@example.com are promptly answered once the product is registered with us.
13. Does the device support networking and wireless?
Yes, Gigabit Ethernet is supported. Yes, Wi-Fi 802.11 b/g/n (QCA6234) + Bluetooth 4.0 is available via the onboard Qualcomm Atheros QCA6234. GPS is supported on Inforce6440.
14. How can I change the MAC address for WiFi/BT/Ethernet on my Board?
This should not be necessary since the correct addresses are programmed before the board is shipped. But if it is still required, please refer to the App Notes available on our website.
15. What are the IO interfaces available?
Standard I/O interfaces including GbE, I2C, SPI, UART, UIM, GPIOs, and on-board Serial Console are available. There are two USB 2.0 host port andonemicro USB OTG port. We also provide a 28 pin expansion header off which 8 GPIOs are available for user.
16. My serial console shows garbage characters. What could be wrong?
The serial port could be incorrectly configured. Please note that the correct settings are - 115200, 8, N, 1, No HW flow control. Please also check your connections as described below. To connect the serial console on Inforce6410 board we would need to have a three pin connector and the wiring as described below:
Take wires from the DB9 port and connect it to the RS232 header on board
DB9 TX ---------- 6410 RX
DB9 RX ---------- 6410 TX
DB9 GND ----------6410 GND
The link http://www.mydragonboard.org/2013/rs-232-cable-for-ifc6410/ has more details
17. What operating systems are supported and what is the OS roadmap?
Android 4.1, 4.2 and 4.4version BSPs are available as officially supported packages on Inforce Techweb.
There has been significant progress within the Linux community and multiple successful projects have taken off because of the community support for Linux on Inforce development kits.There is an Ubuntu-based Linaro Member Build available that provides a desktop like environment using Ubuntu and the Gnome desktop. This package too is officially supported from Inforce Techweb. Please visit https://wiki.linaro.org/Boards/IFC6410 for more information.
18. Is root access possible? Could you please explain how to get root privileges in Android?
Yes. As Android derives from the Linux kernel, rooting an Android device gives similar access administrative permissions as on Linux. Please give below commands in adb shell to get root privileges
19. Is fastboot supported? How to enter fastboot?
Yes. To go to fastboot mode, press the Fastboot button (label 17 on the QSG document for Inforce 6410) before powering on the board.
If you do not see this button on your Inforce 6410 platform, please go through the linkhttp://mydragonboard.org/?s=fastboot+in+ifc6410 for more details.
20. I've modified the boot partitions on my board and the board is no longer booting. What should I do?
If the eMMC partitions have been erased or partition table has been corrupted, you need to recover the eMMC using the instructions you can find on Inforce Techweb site by referring to the application note called "SYS644X AND IFC6410 AppNote Recovery of bricked boards using SD Card".
21. How can I get kernel debug messages?
Connect the device's serial port to the host PC. Refer to Question 11 for connection configuration. Boot into fastboot mode and issue the following command – fastboot -c "console=ttyHSL0,115200n8r androidboot.hardware=qcom" boot boot.img Debug messages should start to show up.
22. Why isn't Google Play (previously Android Market) available on my board?
Google Play (previously Android Market) is part of Google Mobile Services(GMS) and is licensed separately from Google. This is usually available on commercial Android devices. Though our hardware is capable of meeting requirements of the Google Test Suite that would lead to GMS certification, we have not added this to our product.
But it is possible to sideload any Android application using the following commands:
#adb install apk
