Qualcomm has announced two new Snapdragon models, the 600E and 410E, where the E stands for Embedded. These two models have been designed specifically for embedded computing and Internet of Things applications. This includes devices such as set-top boxes, medical images, point of sale systems, digital signage, televisions, media players, interactive kiosks, robotics, high-end toys, thermostats, surveillance systems, and more.
The two chipsets are designed to be efficient with sufficient performance. They support 32-bit and 64-bit applications and can run Android, Linux, as well as Windows 10. You also get support for Bluetooth, Wi-Fi, GPS, SATA, HDMI, USB, and more. They will also come with extended support as these products are usually used for extensive periods of time.
