Getting start with Intel Galileo

I finally got some free time to play around with my Intel Galileo that I have had sitting around collecting dust for the past few days. And I took some pics about the package and main parts on the board. Let’s have some fun.

First, the whole package. It looks beautiful, doesn’t it?

Second, let’s find out what we got under the board:

There are a power plug, and a bunch of adapters. How thoughtful!

Third, let’s take a look at the board. This is front:

And back:

Now, let’s find out what we have on the board:

1.  The Quark! Intel Quark SoC X1000 Application Processor. 400MHz, 32-bit Pentium class in all its glory!

2. 2*128MB DDR3 DRAM, based on the component list online.

3. There is also a PSoC (programmable system on chip) from Cypress. Based on what I found online, it is an I2C-controlled i/o expander chip. And it doesn’t appear to be super fast.

Part # : CY8C9540A-24PVXI

4.  This should be the ethernet controller. Part #: DP83848VW

5. Power management IC. Part#: TPS652510

6. MAX3232

7.  8MB Flash. Part#: 25Q64FVS1G from winband

8. ADC (12-bit, 8-channel) and a temperature sensor. Part#: 7298BCPZ

9. DDR sink/source controller. Part#: TPS51200

10. UART 3.5mm 3-pin jack. Not audio!  And ethernet.

11. the arduino-compatible headers. Most of the existing arduino shield will fit into this board just fine!
