At this week’s Embedded World 2024 in Nuremberg, Germany, Intel and Altera, an Intel company, have introduced processors, field programmable gate arrays (FPGAs) and programmable solutions for edge computing applications like retail, healthcare, industrial, automotive, defense and aerospace.

The processors

Intel has expanded its embedded edge devices with a wave of edge processors and graphic processing units for AI-enabled edge devices.

The new devices include:

  • Intel Core Ultra processors — Desktop processors that combine Intel Arc GPU and neural processing unit with a LGA socket flexibility on a system-on-chip.
  • Intel Core processors — A series of processors offer up to 2.57 times greater graphics performance and up to 3 times more graphics execution units.
  • Intel Atom processors x7000C series — Targeting enterprise networking and telecommunication devices.
  • Intel Atom processors x7000RE series — With built-in deep learning inference capabilities and up to 32 graphics execution units.


Altera also updated its FPGA portfolio for embedded intelligent edge devices. These include:

  • FPGAi series — an AI suit that adds support for Agilex 5 SoC FPGAs
  • Agilex 5 SoC FPGAs — A series with up to 2 times better performance per watt versus competing 7 nanometer FPGAs.
  • Agilex 5 E-Series devices with Quartus Prime Pro edition version 24.1 — This is software used in the Agilex 5 E-Series SoC FPGAs and selected complementary IP cores.
