Software Development Kits (SDKs)

Developers can leverage a variety of SDKs to help enable their IoT solutions. Intel offers a number of SDKs, including:

Intel® Computer Vision SDK (Intel® CV SDK)

Use this SDK to develop and deploy vision-oriented solutions for autonomous vehicles, digital surveillance cameras, robotics, and mixed-reality headsets.

Intel® Media SDK

Use this SDK to develop media applications on Windows* and embedded Linux* for fast video playback, encoding, processing, and video conferencing.

Intel® SDK for OpenCL™ Applications

This SDK allows you to offload compute-intensive parallel workloads to Intel® Graphics Technology.

Deep Learning Training Tool Beta

Use this SDK to develop and train deep-learning solutions using your own hardware.

Intel® Math Kernel Library

Accelerate math processing routines to increase application performance and reduce development time

Intel® FPGA SDK for OpenCL™ software technology

Implement applications onto FPGAs easily, and write hardware-accelerated kernel functions in OpenCL C*.

An IDE that Supports Consistency and Portability

Purpose-built for rapid code development in IoT environments, the Intel® System Studio is an Eclipse*-based IDE for developing in C++ or Java*. 


Intel® System Studio 2018 Beta Program

The IDE comes with built-in capabilities to easily integrate sensors via the UPM and MRAA libraries, templates, code libraries, samples, platform awareness, and other tools that work across the Intel® IoT Platform. Designed for IoT, the IDE is fine-tuned for embedded application performance, allows for easy sensor integration and is great for prototyping or production development. 

Arduino Create*

This cloud based IDE solution integrates with Intel® boards and libraries for C++ development to enable streamlined prototyping of Intel® architecture based commercial applications. Enhanced IDE capabilities include: support for Ubuntu* and Wind River Linux* operating systems, support for multiple sketches running concurrently, Amazon Web Services (AWS)* and Microsoft Azure* integration, built in SDK support, and the exporting of Arduino Create* projects to Intel® System Studio 2018 Beta.

Sensors & Supporting Software that Just Works

Gain access to hundreds of sensors and sensor kits for both prototyping and industrial-grade applications, purpose-built for just about any conceivable application. Thanks to the sensor library framework and platform detection, you’ll also get code samples that remain portable throughout the development cycle and as you scale up the enterprise.
