Intel today announced that devices powered by its latest Intel® Atom™ processors and running Android 5.0, Lollipop will be Android for Work compliant for the enterprise. Google's effort to bring more security and manageability features to Android in the enterprise is in line with Intel's efforts to strengthen its enterprise security management platform. Intel continues to deliver differentiated security for Android with McAfee Mobile Security and Intel® Device Protection Technology.

To accelerate the deployment of new mobile games across an increasingly diverse spectrum of devices, Intel today released the latest Intel® XDK, an all-in-one HTML5 development environment that allows game developers to write a single app and automatically build versions for Android, iOS, and Windows app stores. Intel® XDK gives gamers the ability to enjoy the same experiences across their PCs, phones, and tablets, and lets developers focus on creating new experiences instead of porting games to different platforms. This version adds popular game engine support for Construct2, Cocos2D, Phaser, EaselJS part of CreateJS suite of libraries, and Pixi.js; includes an Asset Manager to access, manipulate, and manage game assets; plus the W3C Gamepad API for devices; and supports Google Play Game Services and Apple Game Center Services.

In order to help people understand the level of processor performance and make an informed purchase decision based on their needs, Intel® Atom™ processors will now be offered in three distinct brand levels in a good/better/best construct - the Intel Atom x3, x5 and x7 processors. This change will start with the next generation of processors. Intel Atom x3 processor provides basic, but genuine Intel-level tablet, phablet and smartphone performance.  Intel Atom x5 processor has more capabilities and features for people who want an even better experience, and the flagship Intel Atom x7 processor provides the highest level of performance and capabilities for the Intel Atom family. The Intel Atom processor is designed to provide the best battery life with great performance for tablets, phablets, smartphones and other mobile devices. This infographic lists Intel’s consumer brand portfolio for consumer devices including the Intel® Core™ processor, Intel® Core™ M processor, Intel Atom processor, Intel® Pentium® processor and Intel® Celeron® processor.

Intel President Renee James introduced former Secretary of State Hillary Rodham Clinton during a luncheon keynote at the Lead On Watermark Silicon Valley Conference for Women today in Santa Clara. The inaugural Watermark event aims to increase the representation of women at executive levels to drive innovation, human development and economic growth.

Giving Internet of Things innovators and Makers the ability to quickly create device firmware without programming expertise is the goal behind Intel’s two-pronged release of Intel® Firmware Engine and Intel® Firmware Engine Software Development Kit (SDK). This free tool from Intel will accelerate the creation of firmware, the basic software needed to boot embedded devices and launch operating systems. Intel Firmware Engine makes use of a new binary-only approach to firmware development that allows to develop firmware without programming experience. Intel Firmware Engine will be launching at the Intel Developer Forum in Shenzhen, China in April while the SDK will become available later by mid-year. At launch, Intel Firmware Engine will support multiple products based on the Intel® Atom™ and Intel® Quark™ processors.

At Embedded World 2015, Intel and its ecosystem partners are showing the latest innovations using Intel® IoT Gateway solutions. The innovations on display range from smart city projects, like an IoT-ready camera with traffic analytics, to building automation to software and manufacturing – even an intelligent chocolate factory model. At the show, developers can see and learn about the IoT tools and resources Intel offers to help drive IoT innovation. The products and innovations are on display from Feb. 24-26 in Nuremberg, Germany in the Intel booth (#328, Hall 1) at the Nuremberg Convention Centre (NCC). For more information about Intel’s embedded solutions, visit the online press kit.

Soon the wireless industry will convene at Mobile World Congress in Barcelona to show and discuss the future of mobility. Intel will be there to introduce and showcase new products and technologies designed to advance next-generation wireless networks and the growing range of smart devices connecting to them. The news is under wraps until the show, but Intel vice president Julie Coppernoll blogs today about several themes the industry (and Intel) will likely be talking about.

In the early years of a child’s education, reading skills are one of the most important to develop as a foundation for future success. Intel and Clarity Innovations teamed up to provide an easy-to-use app that helps kids practice their reading skills. Read With Me is a Chrome application for K-3 students that assigns reading based on learning levels and digitally recognizes speech to give children real-time feedback on their reading fluencies and abilities. This learning application guides a child from their current reading level and gives them evaluation, badges that provide encouragement and access to teachers who help link this data to classroom support. Learn more about Read With Me by visiting Intel Education.

Moore’s Law continues delivering and chip designers continue to make use of the ever more sophisticated technology. At this year’s International Solid State Circuits Conference, papers describe progress made possible by Intel’s leading 14nm process, including the first complete wireline transceiver on 14nm technology (60 percent smaller than the smallest comparable link) and the world’s smallest SRAM bitcell, reducing peak write power by 24 percent compared to actively biased circuits. Intel Labs presents research in chip design to boost performance and energy efficiency. This includes a graphics execution core for SoCs with an 82 percent reduction in energy consumption at near-threshold voltage and 75 percent higher frequency at maximum performance. For more, see descriptions of many of Intel’s activities at ISSCC.

According to a report released by the Linux Foundation today, Intel tops the list of companies contributing to the Linux Kernel from Sept 2013 through Jan 2015. Of the 239 companies that made submissions to the open source project, Intel made 10.5% of the total contributions. Additionally, Intel has been the most active in introducing new developers to the project. Linux powers 98% of the world’s super computers, most of the servers powering the Internet, the majority of financial trades worldwide and tens of millions of Android mobile phones and consumer devices. The Linux Kernel is the foundation for software running on Linux systems and Intel’s contributions are part of the work done by the Intel Open Source Technology Center in the Software and Services Group.

Intel IT has published its annual performance report in the Intel IT Business Review, which spotlights Intel IT’s progress in driving improved productivity, efficiency, time to market and profitability. Notably, the report explains how in 2014 Intel used business intelligence and analytic tools to increase revenue by $350 million. A sales and marketing analytics engine delivered roughly 75 million in new revenue, while a pilot to reduce product test time netted more than 13 million. The biggest boost, over $250 million, came from integrating multiple data sources into a decision support system to maximize revenue by optimizing supply and demand. “What it really comes down to for any company is framing that business problem so that you answer the right questions and then marry previously unused or new data to solve that problem,” commented Intel CIO Kim Stevenson in a related podcast.
