Intel® Edison development board
Few months ago we read about Intel Gallileo and everybody in makers community was excited (including myself!). This time Intel had another surprise for us. Intel CEO Brian Krzanich showed a new product with the name Intel Edison. It is a mini development board that has the size of an SD card and the power of a pentium cpu! He said that the goal of Edison is to give wearable computing manufacturers a go-to option when they need a computer to power their devices.
Wearables are not everywhere today because they aren’t yet solving real problems and they aren’t yet integrated with our lifestyles. We’re focused on addressing this engineering innovation challenge. Our goal is, if something computes and connects, it does it best with Intel inside.”
And the press release:
Discover the Intel® Edison development board, a tiny, ultra-power-efficient development platform the size of an SD* card that is small enough to drop into just about anything.
It can be designed to work with most any device—not just computers, phones, or tablets, but chairs, coffeemakers, and even coffee cups. The possibilities are endless for entrepreneurs and inventors of all kinds.
The Intel Edison board features a low-power 22nm 400MHz Intel® Quark processor with two cores, integrated Wi-Fi and Bluetooth*, and much more.
The unique combination of small size, power, and rich capabilities makes the Intel Edison board a game changer, lowering the barriers to entry for thousands of visionaries.
Intel Edison board-powered devices can cooperate in highly customized and sophisticated ways. These devices don’t have to be hardwired one-trick ponies; they can house multiple apps that can be downloaded and installed just like we do with phones and tablets.
