«Intel» introduced «Curie» – a computer the size of a button
The company “Intel” decided to capture the imagination of dimensions PC: it recently introduced personal computer a bit larger than usual USB memory stick. Now Intel Curie, whose size does not exceed the magnitude of ordinary buttons.
The device runs on 32-bit Intel Quark SE SoC and 80 KB SRAM ultra-fast memory and 384 KB of flash memory. By the way, system-on-chip Inte lQuark SE was designed to provide a very low level of consumption, so it can work for a long time on a single battery the size of a coin. In addition, the Intel Quark SE has a unique mechanism of recognition samples, which allows you to define different movement.
In addition, the Curie is equipped with a motion sensor, a combined sensor that combines the functions of a gyroscope and accelerometer, Bluetooth module with low power consumption and the power controller. Working miniature computer platform RTOS (Real-Time Operating System) open source – anyone can write apps for this gadget. For this the company offered software Intel IQ Software Kit operating system real-time embedded software that interfaces with apps for mobile devices and cloud services, as well as examples of applications.
The company expects that Intel Curie will be used in various wearable devices: the Intel Curie Module can be an ideal solution for the integration of additional functions in a wide range of goods and things. It can be placed in rings, bracelets, pendants, bags, fitness trackers and even in ordinary zip”, — said the representative of “Intel”.
