Intel® Galileo Development Board

Getting Started with Intel® Galileo Development Board

  • Date: 30th April 2014

  • Speaker: Eng Kean Lee, Technical Marketing Engineer

The Intel® Galileo board is based on the Intel® QuarkTM SoC X1000, a 32-bit Intel Pentium®-class system on a chip (SoC). It is the first board based on Intel® architecture designed to be hardware and software pin-compatible with shields designed for the Arduino Uno R3. The Galileo board is also software-compatible with the Arduino Software Development Environment that makes getting started easier. In addition, the Galileo board has several PC industry standard I/O ports and features to expand native usage and capabilities beyond the Arduino shield ecosystem. A full sized mini-PCI Express slot, 100Mb Ethernet port, Micro-SD slot, RS-232 serial port, USB Host port, USB Client Port, and 8 MByte NOR flash come standard on the board. The Intel processor and surrounding native I/O capabilities of the SoC provides for a fully featured offering for both the maker community and students alike. It will also be useful to professional developers who are looking for a simple and cost effective development environment.
