In science, the atom is the fundamental unit of matter – the building blocks out of which all the elements are made, from the simplest to the most complex. In software development terms, the Intel Atom processor is also a fundamental unit, powering computers small and large.

If you‚Äôre a scientist studying atoms, you‚Äôve got a whole range of chemical and physics equipment to choose from ‚Äì and your laboratory might be as massive as the Large Hadron Collider. On the other hand, if you‚Äôre a Linux developer building apps that target devices using the Atom, your workshop might be as small as a buffed-up notebook ‚Äì running the Intel Application Software Development Suite for Intel Atom, along with a small laptop development host.
