Intel has unveiled a new IoT platform, along with a number of new hardware and software products, as it seeks to expand within the growing IoT marketplace.Taking the wraps off its latest IoT offerings, Intel stated that a new IoT platform reference architecture for smart and connected things is focused on enabling the Intel ecosystem “to simply develop, secure and integrate smart things”.
“The platform provides a blueprint for delivering innovations to market faster by reducing complexity and defining how smart devices will securely connect and share trusted data to the cloud,” Intel stated.
Intel has also introduced three new Quark processors – the Quark microcontroller D1000 and D2000, and the Quark SE microcontroller – featuring “powerful processing in an energy-conscious envelope”, which it states offer extended temperature for demanding environments, along with long-life reliability.
Meanwhile, new software from Intel subsidiary Wind River is “designed to help makers and commercial developers simplify and accelerate IoT application and device development, with the ability to start building applications in 10 minutes”.
The software includes free cloud-connected multi-architecture operating systems, Wind River Rocket and Wind River Pulsar Linux, and a cloud suite of SaaS products.
“Today, Intel further solidifies its position in the IoT and continues to deliver a comprehensive set of building blocks with a strong ecosystem to address the IoT opportunity,” Doug Davis, Intel IoT Group senior vice president, commented.
“Intel is making it easier for our customers to scale from things to cloud with new Intel Quark processors for IoT and Wind River’s free cloud-connected OS for microcontrollers.”
