The Intel® Galileo Gen 2 board is the first in a family of Arduino*-certified development and prototyping boards based on Intel® architecture and specifically designed for makers, students, educators, and DIY electronics enthusiasts.
• Intel® Quark™ SoC X1000 application processor, a 32-bit, single-core, single-thread, Intel® Pentium® processor instruction set architecture (ISA)-compatible, operating at speeds up to 400 MHz.
• Support for a wide range of industry standard I/O interfaces, including a full-sized mini-PCI Express* slot, 100 Mb Ethernet port, microSD* slot, USB host port, and USB client port.
• 256 MB DDR3, 512 kb embedded SRAM, 8 MB NOR Flash, and 8 kb EEPROM standard on the board, plus support for microSD card up to 32 GB.
• Hardware and 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*, Mac OS*, and Linux* host operating systems.
• Support for Yocto 1.4 Poky* Linux* release.
• 6-pin 3.3V USB TTL UART header replaces 3.5-mm 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.
• 12V power-over-Ethernet (PoE) capable (PoE module installation required).
• Power regulation system changed to accept power supplies from 7V to 15V.
• Intel Galileo also supports the Wyliodrin* platform that provides C, Python, Node.js, and Visual Programming environments from a remotely-connected browser.
• In addition to open source Yocto Linux, Intel Galileo Gen 2 supports VxWorks* (RTOS), and now Microsoft Windows* is supported directly from Microsoft.
