Intel Software
IoT is fun …
IoT is fun, as long as it’s just for fun
There’s a lot of good prototyping platforms on the market.
But it’s usually hell to go in production with such platforms.
Embedded is complex …
Embedded is complex, and should be simpler
Embedded development is often too complex.
Specific OSes, procedures, hardware and software availability.
It’s a world of heavily customized, hard to maintain projects.
Solution : Intel Edison
Smart IoT
Edison is an intel based platform for IoT and embedded projects.
It’s very compact (a little more than a SD card)
and very low power (imagine a USB port).
Perfect for mos IoT projects,
but not small enough for some wearable projects.
You get a lot of processing power/storage/connectivity,
so it’s perfect for smart highly connected IoT projects
where you need local processing.
Embedded made easy
Easy embedded
It’s easy to work with Edison because it’s an Intel PC (with an Atom processor)
running linux. You’re “at home” with Edison.
Your linux32 binaries will work out of the box,
you can even compile with gcc on the board itself.
It’s has excellent embedded features, but as easy as a PC.
You can start developing your project on Edison,
and deploy on bigger platforms like Intel Baytrail (mobile)
if you think you need more power or a graphics chip.
You can even switch to Core or Xeon !
The architecture, features and software tools are mostly the same.
Edison is embedded made simple.
Prototyping to Production
70 pins of magic
There’s a lot of good prototyping platforms on the market.
But it’s usually hell to go in production with such platforms.
A great feature is Edison’s 70 pins connector :
o You start developing with the Edison module
connected to a big daughter card with all the connectors.
o When you know exactly what you want, you replace the board with a smaller
board exposing the connectivity you need and nothing else.
o When you are ready to go into production,
all you need is to build a simple daughter card adapted to your needs
and connect it to Edison with the 70 pins connector.
o No need to build a new motherboard with a processor,
memory, storage, connectivity.
Two processors : RT and non RT
Atom for general purpose Linux
The first processor you’ll see on Edison is the Atom dual core processor.
It’s powerful enough to easily boot a full linux distribution.
You can compute advanced artificial intelligence, image analysis, data crunching,
run complex frameworks, … It’s a small, low energy PC (imagine USB power).
Quark Microcontroller for Real Time
There’s a second processor, very low voltage, booting a real-time OS.
With this one, you can analyze in real time sensitive sensor data.
The full linux on atom can be put to sleep to save energy
while the RT linux continues to analyze data from the sensors.
Need to crunch a LOT of data ? Internet access ? Use Atom.
Need to crunch data in Real Time ? Very low power ? Use Quark.
Key specifications
o 22nm Intel® SoC that includes a Intel® Atom™ CPU at 500MHz
Dual core, dual threaded
o 32-bit Intel® Quark™ microcontroller at 100 MHz.
o 40 GPIOs
o Dual-band WiFi and BTLE
The Course
Linux based IoT/Embedded
Arduino vs GUI vs Linux
Edison can emulate the behavior of an Arduino board.
You can also use a complex middleware
to program Edison remotely from a GUI on your PC.
But most linux developers will want to access the OS booted on Edison directly
with ssh and use it a PC server for IoT and embedded projects.
That’s what we’ll cover in this course.
Only show the differences
We suppose you’re a developer with a little Linux experience, but not an IoT or
embedded expert.
We plan to focus only on the differences between a regular Linux PC
and IoT/embedded development on Intel Edison.
