Hello, I am currently evaluating a few Snapdragon SoM's to use, namely those provided by Intrinsyc and Variscite. I want to use the Machine Vision SDK with one of these boards, however I was unable to find any documentation pertaining to the platforms that are supported. Are any of these boards supported by this SDK? What other Snapdragon chips are supported besides the Snapdragon Flight? Thank you

You are correct that the documentation is lacking in specifying what is supported and the will be fixed.  Unfortunately, the current version only supports the Snapdragon Flight platform and those specific versions of the OS thereon.  It might work on other SoM's with the same chip and using the same OS but it is low probability that it would all just work.

 

We will let the product team know of your request for support on other modules.  It should be little work to support other modules except for testing so it is a very reasonable request.  If you or your company are working directly with any sales or product folks at Qualcomm, please utilize that channel for your request as well.

Hi gmcgrath, thanks for your reply. A quick follow up question, would a different board with the same chip as the Snapdragon Flight (APQ8074) work? For example: http://www.variscite.com/products/system-on-module-som/cortex-a53-krait/...
 
It would be great if the 820 module was supported as it has a 10 year support cycle as I understand from Qualcomm and it seems to be a very popular chip. If there is a way to keep me updated on this it would be great. Thanks!

It could work with that module that has the same chip provided that the same version of the Linux system libraries that are linked against (e.g., libc, libssl, ...) are all there as on Snapdragon Flight.  We do not provide a list of what system libraries we link against either so it would be trial and error to find out.  In other words, if the Intrinsyc Linux OS v3.1.3.1 that one uses on the Snapdragon Flight can be installed and run on this module then it might work without modifications.
