Where can I find a IFC Development Board? I have a DragonBoard Development Kit based on Snapdragon 800 but it is a bit too big to put on a rover, do we have something smaller?

@mcarr, as @rama pointed out, the Inforce 6410 SBC (Pico-ITX form factor of 10cm x 7cm, so small enough for the rover) can be purchased online.  The Snapdragon micro-rover has been built with the Inforce 6410 riding piggyback on it along with a 5MP Omnivision camera (Inforce accessory ACC-1H00, which is used for pattern recognition when you run the "Follow-target" app). See this link for a picture of how it's configured. The Inforce 6410 SBC communicates with the IOIO board (for PWM/motor control) via BT and both the SBC and the camera fit snugly into grooves on top of the 3D printed snapdragon micro-rover. You need to secure it with a velcro and a couple of screws. As some of the algorithms you'd potentially run on the Inforce 6410 could be pretty intensive, we recommend you add a simple passive heat-sink on top of the APQ8064 SoC to improve heat dissipation and performance.

Cheers!
