OnLogic and Intel Collaboration

Ross Hamilton

Intel’s Operating Segments

Intel is organizationally divided into multiple operating segments. Those being:

  • CCG – Client Computing Group
  • DCAI – Datacenter and AI
  • NEX – Network and Edge
  • AXG – Accelerated Computing Systems and Graphics Group
  • IFS – Intel Foundry Services
  • Mobileye – Assisted and autonomous driving

For the latest information and specifics pertaining to all of the various Intel operating segments, please refer to https://www.intc.com/segments.

How does OnLogic work with Intel?

OnLogic is a strategic technical and ecosystem partner that primarily coordinates with and maintains a strong partnership with the Intel Network and Edge (NEX) operating segment.  In contrast, other companies may work very closely with different Intel operating segments, e.g. Consumer/Gaming PC providers coordinate with Intel CCG and DataCenter providers coordinate with Intel DCAI.

Intel’s NEX operating segment generally works internally with the Intel Client Computing Group (CCG) and DataCenter and AI (DCAI) to adapt and bring the latest technologies to the Edge and IoT marketplace.

The collaboration between OnLogic and Intel brings together the advanced technologies from Intel and the innovation from OnLogic to create robust, reliable, long life Edge and IoT products.

Benefits OnLogic’s coordinate with Intel NEX

As mentioned above, OnLogic closely coordinates with Intel NEX. This coordination provides the following benefits:

  • Wide temperature ranges and reliability support for components (CPUs, network controllers, etc.)
  • Long Term Support and Silicon Availability
  • Unique silicon features differentiated Edge & IoT Technologies

In sum total, these benefits are significantly profound and valuable for Edge and IoT related products.

Frequently Asked Questions (FAQ)

Q: How do Intel NEX CPUs differ from Intel CCG CPUs?

A: Intel Client Computing Group (CCG) releases CPUs and new CPU generations at a faster pace and more frequently than Intel NEX. While Intel NEX generally adopts many processor SKUs and the SKU naming conventions from CCG, not all CCG CPU SKUs are adopted by Intel NEX. Intel NEX processor SKUs also have long term silicon availability (typically 7-10 years), whereas Intel CCG processor SKU availability is much shorter.

Q: Are there any Operating System / Software limitations with leveraging platforms based on Intel NEX products?

A: Since Intel NEX processors, products, and technologies are created for long term enablement, Intel only formally supports and recommends the use of long term support OS versions (e.g. LTSC versions of Windows, LTS versions of Ubuntu Linux, etc.). When functionally possible, and based on OnLogic’s own internal validation and verification, limited support may be available from OnLogic for OS versions without a long term support model. End users must acknowledge and recognize that OS & software limitations may apply to driver updates, security vulnerability and exploit (SVE) patches, and/or functional fixes
