Intel is set to showcase a number of new IoT products at the Embedded World trade fair in Nuremberg, Germany.
On the hardware front, Intel has collaborated with Telit to create a number of module solutions based on the Intel Atom x3 processor.
The Telit modules feature integrated application processing and wi-fi, Bluetooth, GNSS and cellular capabilities. These modules are expected to be commercially available in late 2016.
Intel is also introducing the Intel IoT Gateways and Intel Expansion Kit with MinnowBoard MAX.
The MinnowBoard MAX is a compact, open-source hardware reference platform that uses Intel’s Atom E3825 System-on-a-Chip (SoC). The expansion kit will facilitate compatibility with Intel-equipped IoT gateways.
Intel will also showcase the newly released MinnowBoard Turbot, which uses a faster CPU than the MinnowBoard MAX (Atom 3826 vs Atom E3825), has more components, and fixes a number of issues inherent in the MinnowBoard MAX, including weak HDMI signal and USB back powering issues.
Software-wise, Intel will announce a new Intel System Studio IoT Edition for C/C++/Java development.
Intel’s XDK IoT Edition is also set to receive expanded capabilities, with new features and support for node.js apps and HTML5 companion app development, including Sensor Explorer and Intel IoT Gateways features.
