RS Components to distribute embedded-system products from Intel

April 05, 2016 // By Graham Prophet
Distributor RS Components has put in place a global agreement with Intel for the distribution of a range of the company’s computing and embedded development products. The agreement enables customers worldwide to purchase a wide selection of Intel products direct from RS, targeting numerous applications and Internet of Things (IoT) based projects.

Intel or Intel-based products available from RS include the complete Intel Edison development platform and the Intel Compute Stick , as well as various other devices including Intel Atom processor-based single-board computers and a range of Intel Solid-State Drives that offer densities from 64 GB up to 1.6 TB.


The Intel Edison platform includes the ultra-small Intel Edison compute module , the Intel Edison breakout board for rapid prototyping, and the Intel Edison board for Arduino . The Intel Edison module is a highly miniaturised product-ready compute module that uses a 22 nm System-on-Chip including a dual-core dual-threaded 500 MHz Intel Atom CPU and a 100 MHz 32-bit Intel Quark microcontroller. The platform also integrates Wi-Fi and low-energy Bluetooth Smart connectivity as well as device-to-device and device-to-cloud connectivity framework for IoT application development.


The Intel Compute Stick can transform any HDMI monitor or TV into a fully functional computer preloaded with Windows 10. The device provides the same OS, high-quality graphics and wireless connectivity as a full-sized computer with ample speed and storage, but is much lower cost and very small, with dimensions of only 113 x 387 x 12mm.
