With up to 50 billion Internet of Things devices installed in the world by 2020, Intel is working aggressively to bring its familiar x86 architecture into the IoT and wearables world. Today at IDF 2014 in Shenzhen, China, Intel CEO unveiled new products and solutions to drive the growth of IoT.
Intel has announced the extension of Intel Edison to a family of development boards. The key development is the use of a 22nm Intel Silvermont dual-core Atom SoC to replace the Quark SoC. Initially, Intel said the Edison development board was supposed to be based on the latter.
Intel has revealed additional details for its second generation of Atom C2000 systems on a chip (SoCs). Previously known as Avoton and Rangeley, these 22nm SoCs are part of Intel's broader strategy to build data centers. In turn, these centers will form cloud computing infrastructures of the future.
At Computex earlier today, Intel announced their latest 22nm SoC codenamed Bay Trail-T for tablet devices. With improved performance, graphics and lower power consumption, does Intel have what it takes to compete in the tablet market?
Silvermont will be the foundation for a range of innovative products beginning to come to market later this year, and will also be manufactured using the company's 22nm Tri-Gate SoC manufacturing process, which brings significant performance increases and improved energy efficiency.
Intel plans to launch its next generation of Atom processors, which are based on 22nm microarchitecture, as early as Q4 of this year. According to CPU World, these 22nm chips are named 'Silvermont' and are intended to replace Intel's current generation of 32nm 'Clover Trail' chips
