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.
