Intel Galileo

Post by Chuckt » Fri Oct 04, 2013 12:49 am

I can hardly keep up but there is another board.
Intel Corporation CEO Brian Krzanich today announced a collaboration agreement with Arduino LLC, the leading open-source hardware platform in the maker and education community. Krzanich also unveiled the Intel® Galileo board, the first product in a new family of Arduino-compatible development boards featuring Intel® architecture.
http://newsroom.intel.com/community/int ... d-students
Galileo is a microcontroller board based on the Intel® Quark SoC X1000 Application Processor, a 32-bit Intel Pentium-class system on a chip (datasheet?). It’s the first board based on Intel® architecture designed to be hardware and software pin-compatible with Arduino shields designed for the Uno R3. Digital pins 0 to 13 (and the adjacent AREF and GND pins), Analog inputs 0 to 5, the power header, ICSP header, and the UART port pins (0 and 1), are all in the same locations as on the Arduino Uno R3. This is also known as the Arduino 1.0 pinout.

I'm not totally sold if it doesn't have the Arduino Mega shield space.

I agree with you that it's tough to keep up!

I was just thinking the other day that I was just getting quite good at using swordfish basic and then it seems that the swordfish basic community is almost non-existant - people have moved on to other things!

Maybe technology could slow down a bit :)

I'm wondering if a 16 MHZ Arduino is losing market share to the Beaglebone and Raspberry Pi because Arduino is coming out with another board:

Arduino TRE will be using a 1-GHz Sitara AM335x processor which they say is 100 times more powerful than the Arduino Uno or Leonardo.

I suppose they have to do this to survive in this market.

I guess to be honest, I'd just like everything to stay as is. My projects don't require a 1Ghz processor!
