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.
Let's look at a great example of the Intel Edison board in action.
Rest Devices started with a computer that really is the size of an SD card.
They put the Intel Edison board into a turtle that is water resistant, too big to be a choking hazard, and totally chew-safe. With Bluetooth Smart* to minimize the transmission power, it is comparable to having a traditional baby monitor next to a crib.
Then they attached the turtle to a baby-sized Kimono* with sensors that monitor the baby's temperature, breathing, motion, and more.
Besides sending the baby's data to an app on the parent's iPhone* or Android* device, the Intel Edison board can trigger actions on other connected devices, like this automatic bottle warmer or a coffee cup.
Each one of these has the Intel Edison board inside, communicating with the others to deliver amazing solutions to age-old problems.
Just think of the possibilities.
