andersDX describes its latest design as its fastest-ever ARM module for graphics-rich user interfaces; it is a core module and a single board computer based on the Qualcomm Snapdragon 600 processor for “exceptional GUI performance” on HMIs (human/machine interfaces).

The andersDX CM-QS600 System-on-Module features the Quad Core 1.7GHz Qualcomm Snapdragon 600 processor and high performance Adreno GPU and VPU, and comes with full BSP access for Ubuntu Linux and Android Kitkat. The module is based on the Snapdragon S4 Pro APQ8064 from the 600 series by Qualcomm, with a 1700 MHz Quad core Krait 300 processor giving efficient multi-tasking when compared to dual core processors. The Graphics Processing Unit is a Qualcomm Adreno 320 with a 400 MHz clock speed supporting video acceleration and camera capture.

andersDX is also offering the SBC-QS600, a Single Board Computer measuring 81 x 81 mm and based on the CM-QS600. It is offered with an optional 3G Cellular Modem. It features HDMI and LVDS graphics out in addition to standard I/O.

An anders spokesman comments; “More than 1 billion devices are powered by Snapdragon processors. High definition 3D smooth gaming and video 1080p playback is possible on the GPU and this makes it an ideal candidate for grabbing the attention of passers-by or keeping users engaged for longer. We’re helping customers to get to market more quickly by offering System-on-Module and SBC formats based on this processor.”
