Please refer to the product specifications in the Hardware Reference Manual or the datasheet for more information and also for the exact product SKU for the available interfaces.

 

Software

22. What operating systems are supported and what is the OS roadmap?

A Board Support Package (BSP) for Android 10 is available as an officially supported package on our TechWeb repository. An Ubuntu/Debian Linux based BSP would soon be made available and please stay tuned to our website for an announcement on this package. Periodic releases shall be provided with feature improvements on both these packages. SMART Wireless would be glad to upgrade the BSP to a newer Android version to support feature improvements. Please stay tuned for announcements on our website for update releases.

23. Is root access possible on Inforce boards? 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
#adb root
#adb remount Note that root access to the app space is not provided by default by the BSP.

24. Is fastboot supported? How to enter fastboot?

Yes. To go to fastboot mode, keep the Fastboot button pressed before powering on the board. Release it after the board is powered on.

25. 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 support portal by referring to the relevant application note.

26. Is the Hexagon DSP available on the Inforce 6310 platform?

Yes. Qualcomm’s Hexagon DSP architecture is designed to deliver performance with low power over a variety of heterogeneous computing applications. It has features such as hardware assisted multithreading and instructions geared toward efficient signal processing. The Inforce 6310 SBC comes with the Hexagon™ 546 DSP designed for low-power audio and computer vision processing.
Qualcomm opens up a comprehensive Hexagon SDK that provides a complete environment to generate dynamic Hexagon DSP code modules. Inforce’s Android BSP releases enables the use of the Hexagon SDK and provides sample applications. The Hexagon SDK provides a RPC mechanism (FastRPC) to communicate between the HLOS and Hexagon DSP.

27. How can I get kernel debug messages?

Connect the device’s serial port and debug messages should start to show up on utilities like minicom/putty(if using a windows host).

28. Why isn’t Google Play available on my board?

Google Play is part of Google Mobile Services (GMS) and is licensed separately by 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. For more details, please read our blog on this at https://www.smartwirelesscompute.com/blog/google-mobile-services-android/
Nevertheless, it is possible to side-load any Android application using the following commands:
#adb devices
#adb mount
#adb remount
#adb install
