Introducing Intel Galileo Gen 2 development board, the first in a family of Arduino-certified development boards based on Intel architecture and specifically designed for makers, students, educators, and DIY electronics enthusiasts. Intel Galileo is Arduino-certified. Providing users with a fully open source hardware and software development environment, the Intel Galileo board complements and extends the Arduino line of products to deliver more advanced compute functionality to those familiar with Arduino prototyping tools. The Intel Galileo development board is designed to be hardware-, software-, and pin-compatible with a wide range of Arduino Uno R3 shields and additionally allows users to incorporate Linux firmware calls in their Arduino sketch programming. Based on the Intel Quark SoC X1000, a 32-bit Intel Pentium processor-class system on a chip (SoC), the genuine Intel processor and native I/O capabilities of the Intel Galileo board deliver great performance, and a broad spectrum of hardware peripheral and software support to those looking for an affordable single board controller that will bring their project ideas to life quickly and easily.
- Intel Quark SoC X1000 application processor, a 32-bit, single core, single-thread, Pentium instruction set architecture (ISA)-compatible CPU, operating at speeds up to 400 MHz
- 256 MByte DDR3, 512 KByte embedded SRAM, 8 Mbyte NOR Flash, and 8 Kbit EEPROM standard on the board, plus support for MicroSD card up to 32 GB
- Hardware-/pin-compatibility with a wide range of Arduino Uno R3 shields
