Intel Edison – PC the size of an SD card

Intel unveiled its Intel Edison development board – a tiny, ultra-power-efficient development platform the size of an SD card that is small enough to embed into most devices.

It can be designed to work with most devices – not just computers, phones, or tablets, but chairs, coffee makers, and even coffee cups.

“The possibilities are endless for entrepreneurs and inventors of all kinds,” Intel said in a press statement.

The Intel Edison board features a low-power 22nm 400MHz Intel Quark processor with two cores, with integrated Wi-Fi and Bluetooth.

“The 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 said.

“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.”
