"Edison (http://www.intel.com/content/www/us/en/do-it-yourself/edison.html?wapkw=edison) is based on Intelís Quark chip, which it launched last year as its attempt to muscle in on that other flavour-of-the-month market: the so-called Internet of Things. It also reflects the companyís new-found keenness on the 'maker' community. Quark, a 22nm low-power x86 processor with two cores, sits inside Intelís Arduino-compatible Raspberry Pi-alike Galileo board computer.
