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.
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. The board also provides a simpler and more cost-effective development environment compared to the Intel Atom Processor- and Intel Core processor-based designs.
What’s new with Intel Galileo Gen 2
• 6-pin 3.3V USB TTL UART header replace 3.5mm jack RS-232 console port for Linux debug. New 6-pin connector mates with standard FTDI USB serial cable (TTL-232R-3V3) and popular USB-to-Serial breakout boards.
• 12 GPIOs now fully native for greater speed and improved drive strength.
• 12-bit pulse-width modulation (PWM) for more precise control of servos and smoother response.
• Console UART1 can be redirected to Arduino headers in sketches, eliminating the need for soft-serial in many cases
• Power regulation system changed to accept power suppliers from 7V to 15V.
• 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 400MHz.
• Support for a wide range of industry standard I/O interfaces, including a full-sized mini-PCI Express slot, 100Mb Ethernet port, Micro-SD slot, USB host port, and USB client port.
• 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 32GB.
• Hardware-/pin-compatibility with a wide range of Arduino Uno R3 shields.
• Programmable through the Arduino integrated development environment (IDE) that is supported on • Microsoft Windows, Max OS, and Linux host operating systems
• Support for Yocto 1.4 Poky Linux release.
