Skylake is the codename for Intel’s processor microarchitecture that serves as the successor to the Haswell and Broadwell architectures.
As with Broadwell, Intel Skylake utilizes a 14nm (nanometer) die shrink fabrication process, and it serves as the “tock” in Intel’s alternating tick-tock model of releasing new processor families. The “tick” to Intel Skylake, codenamed Cannonlake, is expected to be fabricated on a 10nm die shrink.
Intel Skylake Set to Introduce a Wire-Free Computing Environment
In addition to delivering significant increases in performance, battery life and power efficiency, Intel Skylake processors will offer new wireless charging and data transfer capabilities for a wire-free computing environment. Skylake processors are expected to go into production in the second half of 2015, with Skylake systems available for purchase before the end of 2015.
Skylake will leverage the WiGig and WiDi wireless technologies to deliver faster speeds than the Wi-Fi 802.11ac standard while also enabling computers to automatically work wirelessly with monitors and other peripherals. Intel Skylake systems will also be able to wirelessly charge via the Rezence standard, which is being developed by the Alliance for Wireless Power (A4WP).
Intel is also looking to eliminate the need for passwords with Intel Skylake processors by delivering new capabilities for face recognition and other biometric technologies.
Shellshock is a bug that uses a vulnerability in the common Unix command execution shellbash (Bourne-Again SHell) to potentially enable hackers to take control of the machine and remotely execute arbitrary code directly into the system. Because it preys on the Unix bash shell, which is utilized by most other major desktop and mobile operating […]
- Retina HD Display
Retina HD Display is a marketing term first introduced by Apple with the debut of its iPhone 6 and iPhone 6 Plus smartphones. Retina HD Displays have a high-definition quality resolution and pixel density of at least 326 pixels per inch, which is sufficiently high enough for the average person to be unable to discern […]
- Abstract Data Type
Abstract data types are mathematical models of a set of data values or information that share similar behavior or qualities and that can be specified and identified independent of specific implementations. Abstract data types, or ADTs, are typically used in algorithms. An abstract data type is defined in term of its data items or its […]

In enterprise collaboration the platform generally refers to the system that combines tools and processes to ensure employees can connect and collaborate with the people, information and the resources they require at any given time. Collaboration Tools Collaboration platforms typically include an email client, Web conferencing, social media sharing, video capabilities, document sharing capabilities, instant […]
- Enterprise Collaboration
Often abbreviated as EC, enterprise collaboration is a communications system used by employees (see “Enterprise Collaboration Systems”) to collaborate and complete work tasks across departments within the enterprise. Enterprise collaboration combines a number of tools, Internet, extranets and other networks as needed to support enterprise-wide communications, such as sharing documents, enterprise email systems, videoconferencing, project […]
