1 year, 3 months ago

All 2015 the subject of "The Internet of things" did not descend from pages of the blog Intel on GeekTimes — actually, it became the main here. As the technology is rather new, posts on IoT generally were training. However it is not necessary to refer IoT to category "eternally perspective" — and it was proved once again by the Intel company, having carried out in the middle of December review of devices which are ready to become components of "The Internet of things" already now.
Several domestic developers took part in action. We already wrote about some of them, say, to the device for monitoring of health from "FRUKT MD" the whole post was devoted. This time we will tell about two more interesting, in our opinion, projects: to system of wireless broadcast of a voice of VIS CAST and "smart" video camera of Kraftway Smart Video Camera.

Model of system of climate control on the basis of Intel Edison

1 year, 3 months ago


Today we will create the system of climate control (SCC). Of course, not this, and only model. But it will possess all properties of big system. To have the heating element, ventilation and, among other things, will be able to be controlled as manually, and on the Internet with use of a cloud.

Thunderbolt 3. Everything that is necessary, in one cable and is even a little more

1 year, 3 months ago

2015 promises to become critical in the field of interfaces of connection of digital equipment and the periphery. After emergence of the symmetric connector USB-C, Intel announces technology which opens in front of this connector literal bright future — Thunderbolt 3. And it not exaggeration, you judge. Thunderbolt 3 is:
  • the bus with a speed of 40 Gbit / with (Thunderbolt 2, and in 4 — USB 3.1 is twice faster);
  • possibility of connection of two 4K 60 Hz of monitors through DisplayPort 1.2;
  • 4 PCI Express Gen 3 lines;
  • to 100 W for needs of power supply and recharge;
  • emulation 10G Ethernet;
  • consecutive connection to 6 devices.
And all this, we will repeat, it is implemented by means of one tiny USB-C connector. It is easy to provide the opportunities given by new technology. Let's tell, a mega-docking station (by the standards of the current performance, but not at the price), capable to turn a portable device into a game platform with decent characteristics. Or external information mediums, faster, than present internal. And many other things, of course.
The Thunderbolt 3 specification is published by Intel in the middle of this year, the first implementations in iron exist already now, and mass production of devices will begin with Thunderbolt 3 at the beginning of the next year. And further — absolutely the fairy tale. Approximately in half a year the output of optical Thunderbolt 3 option — the same, but with a cable length up to 60 m will be announced.

Practical work with Intel IoT Developer Kit, Intel XDK, Edison, clouds and Twitter

1 year, 3 months ago


Many who for the first time take Intel Edison in hand, do not know what to begin with. Today we learn how to create simple projects with great opportunities. Connection to a cloud service, response to twitter message, creation of mobile applications of Cordova, work with the emulator of the mobile device and viewing of diagrams by data from a sensor which are stored in a cloud will be considered. All this the parties of Internet of Things (IoT) — the Internet of things.

Intel megahackathon: IoT roadshow 2015 on ENEA

1 year, 4 months ago
Hi, % %username! Today I want to tell about tremendous action to which I was invited by friends from Intel. It was devoted to the Internet of things, Intel Edison microcomputer, a cloud platform of Microsoft Azure and boundless opportunities which are given to the person by the imagination, commitment and desire to make the world are better. It is about Megakhakatona Intel IoT Russia 2015 who passed in Moscow a week ago, based on a hakspeys "Steel — the Smithy of Technologies".



Under a cat you are waited for 100500 photos, by descriptions of projects, two days of development and four tens Edison'ov. Drove!

Fallout Rig — the moddingovy PC in Fallout style

1 year, 4 months ago

This week all progressive mankind celebrates an output of the fourth part of a cult computer game of Fallout. We decided to join a general dvizhukha and to show what moddingovy body the people who are carried away by this game can make. On KDPV — not computer graphics (though it is similar, agree), and you watch absolutely real PC, process of its creation at video under a cat.
For the same who prefers to games an extreme overkloking — the second option of creative approach to creation of the computer. The motherboard, the processor, the hard drive, memory and … two modules of cooling from room conditioners — what will turn out as a result? And whether this monster from the first will earn? The answer in the same place, under a cat.
Intel Inside, of course, is present at both cases.

Intel Ethernet Multi-host Controller FM10000 — essentially new network controller

1 year, 4 months ago
The Intel company is well-known to professionals the network solutions and products. Some lines develop many years, but in any business there is a place for innovations. Pay attention to a new series of the Intel Ethernet Multi-host Controller FM10000 chips combining in themselves Ethernet the controller and the switch in one body with the advanced functions of processing of packets and support of DPDK. To the controller it can be connected to 36x10G or to 6x100G of ports. Connection to server part happens to the help of PCIe interfaces 4x8-lane PCIe or 8kh4-lane. FM10000 will become a basis for network devices of new generation — miniature and very productive. DPI, control and the analysis of a traffic — here those tasks with which this controller will well cope.
As for solutions with long history, I will note one more innovation — the Intel Ethernet Controller X550 controller for two-port network Ethernet of cards of the LAN-on-Motherboard (LOM) format and convergent adapters. As they say, the quality checked by time — we recommend.

The overview of the Xadow Wearable Kit set for Intel Edison and creation of strange game on its basis

1 year, 4 months ago


Many who see Intel Edison for the first time usually see this module already set on the expansion card Arduino which has the notable size which is not assuming any mobile use. Therefore even does not come to most of developers to mind that Edison can be used in the compact or wearable device.
Apparently on a photo, the computing Intel Edison module it is rather small. The main difficulty of its use in such type consists that contacts for connection of the periphery are very small. The used Hirose connector has 70 contacts with a length about 1 cm. One of solutions of this problem is the Xadow Wearable Kit for Intel Edison set from Seeed comprising necessary adapters and small sensors, allowing to develop really compact wearable device.

The computer — the engine of trade or "Toy Store" on the Intel platform

1 year, 5 months ago


The Toy Store shop located at Lubyanka Square in Moscow was branch of paradise on Earth for not one generation Soviet, and then and the Russian children — its visit remained in memory forever. After large-scale reconstruction "Toy Store" opened the doors on March 31 this year again — to show as far as it changed. The contribution to transformation of shop was made also by the Intel company. Give as Friday relaxation we will look at house interiors where children's dreams come true and we learn what is at this magnificence inside.
