Intel Collaborates with Arduino, Introduces Intel-Based Arduino-Compatible Development Board


Intel CEO Brian Krzanich today announced a collaboration agreement with Arduino LLC, the 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.

Arduino development kits and software programming interface make it easier for artists, designers and other enthusiasts to create interactive objects or environments.

Building on the Galileo development board, Intel and the Arduino community will work together on future products.

Also as part of this effort, Krzanich announced a large-scale donation of 50,000 Intel Galileo boards to 1,000 universities worldwide over the next 18 months.

"Through our ongoing efforts in education, we know that hands-on learning inspires interest in science, technology, engineering and math," said Krzanich. "I've been a 'maker' for many years and am passionate about the exciting possibilities of technology and what can be created with it. We look forward to a productive collaboration with Arduino and to providing this community with some incredible Intel products that will help push the boundaries of our imaginations."

Today, Intel is working with 17 universities across six continents to develop curriculum based on the new Intel Galileo board. The goal of the education effort is to put the power of Intel technology into the hands of as many educators and students as possible. The company expects to name additional universities in the coming months.

Intel Galileo is the first in a line of Arduino-compatible development boards based on Intel architecture and is designed for the maker and education communities.

Intel Galileo combines the performance of Intel technology and the ease of the Arduino software development environment. The development board runs an open source Linux operating system with the Arduino software libraries, enabling scalability and re-use of existing software, called "sketches". Intel Galileo can be programmed through Mac OS, Microsoft Windows and Linux host operating software. The board is also designed to be hardware and software compatible with the Arduino shield ecosystem.

Intel Galileo features the Intel Quark SoC X1000, the first product from the Intel Quark technology family of low-power, small-core products. Intel Quark technology will extend Intel architecture into growing areas - from the Internet of Things to wearable computing in the future. Designed in Ireland, the Quark SoC X1000 is a 32-bit, single core, single-thread, Pentium instruction set architecture (ISA)-compatible CPU, operating at speeds up to 400MHz. The chip's core that should be roughly 1/5 the size of Atom and capable of operating at as little as 1/10 the power.



Helping to expand native usage and capabilities beyond the Arduino shield ecosystem, the Intel development board comes standard with several computing industry standard I/O interfaces, including ACPI, PCI Express, 10/100Mb Ethernet, SD, USB 2.0 device and EHCI/OHCI USB host ports, high-speed UART, RS-232 serial port, programmable 8MB NOR flash, and a JTAG port for easy debug. Intel Galileo also brings together the benefits of the Arduino IDE with the broad software development and advanced capabilities of a full, unmodified Linux software stack into one platform, supported by a common open source tool chain.

Overall, the Intel Galileo development board is a tool for quickly prototyping simple interactive designs such as LED light displays that respond to social media, or for tackling more complex projects from automating home appliances to building life-size robots controlled by a smartphone.

Intel Galileo will be available by the end of November.
