CES | Intel introduced dual-core computer Edison size of SD-card

During the presentation, Intel in the exhibition CES-2014 Brian Krzanich presented to the public a tiny device Edison, which he says is a “full-fledged computer Pentium-class”, with size comparable to the conventional SD-memory card.

At the heart of the microcomputer Edison is a 32-bit x86-processor Intel Quark, represents “a system on a chip» (SOC), which was submitted by the company in 2013. A distinctive feature of this processor is much lower power consumption than in the line of processors Atom, while Intel Quark is much more powerful than all of its mobile predecessors. The processor integrated 512KB ultrafast eSRAM-memory, DDR3-controller and interface support PCIe, SPI, I2C, Fast Ethernet, USB 2.0, SDIO, PMC, and GPIO. First modification processors will operate at up to 400 MHz, but the clock speed will constantly increase with the release of new versions.

Edison works on computer operating system Linux, and for him to be launched individual app store like Apple App Store and Google Play. In Edison built modules Wi-Fi and Bluetooth.

First of all, Intel is positioning its development as the basis of various wearable devices. During the presentation demonstrated the use of Edison, together with the application Nursery 2.0 as a kind of nanny for infants. The device remotely included heating bottles of milk when the baby started to cry and demand to feed him, as it is measured by its temperature and monitors the overall emotional state. And that, apparently, only the tip of the iceberg , since Intel announced a contest «Make it Wearable» Edison to better use in the home with a prize fund of 1.3 million dollars (500,000 dollars in the first place).
