Intel CEO finds IoT road too narrow

Keywords:Intel? IoT? Altera? FPGA? processor?

Intel CEO Brian Krzanich has recently shared his thoughts and forecasts on topics ranging from the 3D Xpoint memory chips co-designed with Micron, the outlook for Moore's Law and EUV lithography, China and the pending $16.7 billion deal to acquire FPGA-maker Altera. He also talked about new directions for Intel beyond the PC that may take the company into broader use of DSPs and sensors.

EE Times: What do you think is the most exciting new technology at IDF this year?

Brian Krzanich: What I'm proudest about is we've expanded the reach of Intel. Three years ago people thought of Intel as the PC company, and often times they also remembered we help create all those servers that provide all the data for everything we do. We've gotten past that now.

Take Curie, for example. We came up with the idea for it last fall and announced it at CES in January and will have a product in Q4. That's a speed Intel's never worked at before. It's a new space that's going to bring all kinds of new partners and developers. That's what excites me the most.

The new model now is if you want smart and connected the first place you go is Intel whether it's for a robot or server or wearable, if it's smart and connected start with Intel. That's where I'd like us to be. That's why we started working on things like RealSense and the DSP for Wake-on-Sleep [a new audio capability Intel added to Microsoft's voice features on Windows]. I think that's what I want us to be known for.
