Making Moves With Intel Galileo

by Edgar Silva

We are happy to announce support for the Intel Galileo an Arduino compatible microcontroller/SBC (Single Board Computer).

The Galileo has the advantage of running on a Intel Quark SoC X1000 application processor, a 32-bit Intel Pentium brand system on a chip (SoC), and being able to run a bigger Linux image that lets you access the full Linux distro.

Cylon support is based on the bigger Linux image being installed on the Galileo, which lets you use the Galileo as an independent SBC device.

For the first release we have support for GPIO, digital I/O and analog I/O; and we are already working on the next release that will add I2C support, increasing the number of compatible devices supported by the Galileo.

You can check all the details and docs regarding Galileo support on Cylon.JS: Galileo.

Cylon.js makes developing for the Galileo easy and fun! Cylon.JS supports 21 different hardware platforms, with more being added all the time. Give us a shout on twitter and make sure to check the docs for more info on supported platforms in Cylon.JS.
