Today, Intel is announcing a new modular compute platform called the Intel Compute Card along with a range of partners who will be working with Intel to help accelerate the ecosystem of solutions based on the Intel Compute Card. Intel has been a leader in delivering technology to help realize the benefits of the Internet of Things and enable more smart and connected devices. The Intel Compute Card is being developed with that in mind, to transform the way compute and connectivity can be integrated and used in future devices.
The Intel Compute Card has all the elements of a full computer, including Intel SoC, memory, storage and wireless connectivity with flexible I/O options so hardware manufacturers can optimize for their particular solutions - from interactive refrigerators and smart kiosks to security cameras and IoT gateways. Device makers simply design a standard Intel Compute Card slot into their device and then utilize the best Intel Compute Card for their performance and price needs. This reduces the time and resources needed to design and validate the compute block and helps speed up innovation to bring the power of intelligence into an ever wider range of devices.
Intel is working with a wide range of partners who share our vision that the Intel Compute Card could significantly change the way they and the rest of the industry design and productize a wide range of solutions in the near future. These partners are working to develop products that can take advantage of the simplified design, ease of serviceability and user upgradeability of the Intel Compute Card. Intel is proud to be working with leading global partners, including Dell, HP, Lenovo and Sharp, to bring this vision to reality. In addition, Intel is working with a range of regional partners who are all looking to bring unique solutions to their respective markets. These early partners include Seneca Data, InFocus, DTx, TabletKiosk and Pasuntech.
- Range of processors, up to 7th Gen Intel Core processors
- Incredibly small at 94.5mm x 55mm x 5mm
- Processor, memory, storage and wireless connectivity are all included in the card
- Intel Compute Card-based device will provide the power, cooling and the optimized user I/O for that particularly solution
- Connection to devices will be done via an Intel Compute Card slot with a new standard connector (USB-C plus extension)
- USB-C plus extension connector will provide USB, PCIe, HDMI, DP and additional signals between the card and the device
The Intel Compute Card will be available in mid-2017.
