Brian demonstrates Intel's new Galileo development board


Brian showcases Intel's Galileo - an open design development board with Intel's new Quark SoC X1000 (thermal design point 1.9W - 2.2W). The Galileo runs with Linux, Ubuntu,and the Arduino IDE. The demonstrations will blend physical and distributed computing. We'll use multimeters and toolchains to explore blinking LEDs, networked and motorized applications, benchmarks (in a few languages), wearables and IoT (the Internet of Things). Reference documents - including Galileo's specs, board schematics, BOM, and datasheets - are available at the links below.
