Intel® M2M Reference Design for Smart Services DevelopmentSolution Brief:: Intel® M2M Reference Design based on the Intel® Atom™ processor machine-to-machine (M2M) applicationsIntel® M2M Reference Design for Smart Services Development based on the Intel® Atom™ processor With a footprint the size of a credit card the design supports a variety of wireless connectivity and delivers the computing performance required for M2M applications. The Connected WorldThe need for M2M connectivity and compute is accepted worldwide by technology leaders who share the vision that most, if not all, electronic devices will be connected to the Internet in the not too distant future. When those devices become connected, new opportunities for services, delivery of content, system optimization, and a limitless number of other possibilities will emerge. Intel and Ericsson both forecast that tens of billions of devices will communicate over the Internet this decade. Cellular carriers worldwide believe their networks will serve more machines than people. This will create a pervasive Internet that enables more intelligent devices, and Intel is ready to meet the needs of a connected world. Small Connected Compute PlatformSparing system designers from mastering the complexities of wireless connected computer technology, the Intel® M2M Reference Design, based on the Intel® Atom™ processor, provides a manufacturing-ready platform supporting a variety of wireless connectivity, including 3G/4G wireless broadband, Wi-Fi and solutions using the IEEE 802.15.4 WPAN technology such as ZigBee. Now, manufacturers of connected devices can dramatically lower development and product cost with this Intel Atom processor-based platform based on COM Express* form factor architecture. Measuring a mere 84 mm x 55 mm, this “nano” form factor (Figure 1) is ideal for space constrained, fanless environments. The compute module sits on a carrier board in a case measuring 100 mm x 67 mm, not including antennas or connectors.
