The Intel® Galileo Gen 2 development board is a microcontroller board based on the Intel® Quark™ SoC X1000 application processor, a 32-bit system. It has been designed to be hardware and software pin-compatible with shields designed for the Arduino Uno R3. It is also software-compatible with the Arduino software development environment, which makes for easy usability.The board has several PC industry standard I/O ports and features to expand native usage and capabilities beyond the Arduino shield ecosystem. A full-sized mini-PCI Express slot, 100Mb Ethernet port, Micro-SD slot, 6-pin 3.3V USB TTL UART header, USB host port, USB client port, and 8 Mbyte NOR Flash come standard on the board. This board provides a fully featured offering for both the maker community and students alike. It will also be useful to professional developers who are looking for a simple and cost effective development environment to the more complex Intel® Atom™ processor and Intel® Core™ processor-based designs.
