Intel® Galileo board

New Tools for Innovation


Introducing the Intel® Galileo development board, the first product in a new family of Arduino*-compatible development boards featuring Intel® architecture. The platform is easy to use for new designers and for those looking to take designs to the next level. Intel recognizes that the people who take creating beautiful things into their own hands with innovation and technology are the same ones that propel us forward.

 
The Intel® Galileo board features a flexible, low-power, 400MHz Quark SoC X-1000.

The Intel Galileo development board is a great 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.

This platform provides the ease of Intel architecture development through support for the Microsoft Windows*, Mac OS* and Linux* host operating systems. It also brings the simplicity of the Arduino software integrated development environment (IDE). It's all about delivering Intel performance and quality to the DIY maker community—to support invention and creativity.

Overview

Galileo is a microcontroller board based on the Intel® Quark SoC X-1000. Application Processor, a 32-bit Intel Pentium-class system on a chip. It's the first board based on Intel® architecture designed to be hardware and software pin-compatible with Arduino shields designed for the Uno R3. Digital pins 0 to 13 (and the adjacent AREF and GND pins), Analog inputs 0 to 5, the power header, ICSP header, and the UART port pins (0 and 1), are all in the same locations as on the Arduino Uno R3. This is also known as the Arduino 1.0 pinout.

Galileo is designed to support shields that operate at either 3.3V or 5V. The core operating voltage of Galileo is 3.3V. However, a jumper on the board enables voltage translation to 5V at the I/O pins. This provides support for 5V Uno shields and is the default behavior. By switching the jumper position, the voltage translation can be disabled to provide 3.3V operation at the I/O pins.

Galileo board is also software compatible with the Arduino Software Development Environment (IDE), which makes usability and introduction a snap. In addition to Arduino hardware and software compatibility, the Galileo 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, RS-232 serial port, USB Host port, USB Client port, and 8MB NOR flash come standard on the board.

Details of Intel Architecture Supported Features

The genuine Intel processor and surrounding native I/O capabilities of the Clanton SoC provides for 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.

Communication

Galileo has a number of facilities for communicating with a computer, another Arduino, or other microcontrollers. Galileo provides UART TTL (5V/3.3V) serial communication, which is available on digital pin 0 (RX) and 1 (TX). In addition, a second UART provides RS-232 support and is connected via a 3.5mm jack. The USB Device ports allows for serial (CDC) communications over USB. This provides a serial connection to the serial monitor or other applications on your computer. It also enables Galileo to act as a USB mouse or keyboard to an attached computer. To use these features, see the mouse and keyboard library reference pages. The USB host port allows Galileo act as a USB host for connected peripherals such as mice, keyboards, and smartphones. To use these features, see the USB host reference pages.

Galileo is the first Arduino board to provide a mini PCI express (mPCIe) slot. This slot allows full size and half size (with adapter) mPCIe modules to be connected to the board and also provides an additional USB Host port via the slot. Any standard mPCIe module can be connected and used to provide applications such as Wi-Fi, Bluetooth or cellular connectivity. Initially, the Galileo mPCie slot provides support for the Wi-Fi Library. For additional information, see the Intel® Galileo Getting Started Guide.

An Ethernet RJ45 connector is provided to allow Galileo to connect to wired networks. When connecting to a network, you must provide an IP address and a MAC address. Full support of on-board Ethernet interface is fully supported and does not require the use of the SPI interface like existing Arduino shields. The onboard microSD card reader is accessible through the SD Library. The communication between Galileo and the SD card is provided by an integrated SD controller and does not require the use of the SPI interface like other Arduino boards. The Arduino software includes a wire library to simplify use of the TWI/I2C bus; see the documentation for details. For SPI communication use the SPI library.

Properties of Pins Configured as OUTPUT

On Galileo, when a pin is configured as OUTPUT, the functionality is provided via an I2C-based Cypress I/O expander. Digital pins 0 to 13 and Analog pins A0 to A5 can be configured as OUTPUT pins on Galileo.

The I/O expander's pins, when configured as OUTPUT, can source (provide positive current) up to 10 mA (milliamps) and can sink (provide negative current) up to 25mA of current to other devices/circuits. The individual per pin current sourcing capability of 10mA is subject to an overall limit of 80mA combined between all OUTPUT pins. The per pin capability current sinking capability is subject to an overall limit of 200mA. The following table provides a breakdown of the overall OUTPUT capabilities of the pins.
  Current Source (mA) Current Source (mA)
Per Pin Capability 10 25
Digital Pins 3,5,9,10,12, 13 Combined 40 100
Digital Pins 0,1,2,4,6,7,8,11 and Analog Pins A0,A1,A2,A3,A4, A5 Combined 40 100
Digital Pins 0-13 and Analog Pins A0-A5 Combined 80 200

Programming

Galileo can be programmed with the Arduino software. When you are ready to upload the sketch to the board, program Galileo through the USB client port by selecting "Intel Galileo" as your board in the Arduino IDE. Connect Galileo's port labelled USB client (the one closest to the Ethernet) to your computer. For details, see the reference, tutorials and the Intel® Galileo Getting Started Guide. Rather than requiring a physical press of the reset button before an upload, Galileo is designed to be reset by software running on a connected computer.

When the board boots up two scenarios are possible:

  • If a sketch is present in persistent storage, it is executed
  • If no sketch present, the board waits for upload commands from the IDE

If a sketch is executing, you can upload from the IDE without having to press the reset button on the board. The sketch is stopped; the IDE waits for the upload state, and then starts the newly uploaded sketch. Pressing the reset button on the board restarts a sketch if it is executing and resets any attached shields.

Galileo Jumper Configuration

There are three jumpers on Galileo that are used to vary the configuration of the board.

IOREF Jumper

To allow Galileo support both 3.3V and 5V shields, the external operating voltage is controlled via a jumper. When the jumper is connected to 5V, Galileo is configured to be compatible with 5V shields and IOREF is set to 5V. When the jumper is connected 3.3V, Galileo is configured to be compatible with 3.3V shields and IOREF is set to 3.3V. The input range of the analog pins is also controlled by the IOREF jumper and must not exceed the chosen operating voltage. However, the resolution of analogRead() remains at 5V/1024 units for the default 10-bit resolution or, 0.0049V (4.9mV) per unit regardless of IOREF jumper setting.

Warning: The IOREF jumper should be used to match the board and shield operating voltages. Incorrectly setting the voltage could damage the board or the shield.

I2C* Address Jumper

To prevent a clash between the I2C* Slave address of the on board I/O expander and EEPROM with any external I2C* Slave devices, jumper J2 can be used to vary the I2C* address of the on-board devices. With J2 connected to pin 1 (marked with white triangle), the 7-bit I/O Expander address is 0100001 and the 7-bit EEPROM address is 1010001. Changing the jumper position changes the I/O expander address to 0100000 and the EEPROM address to 1010000.

VIN Jumper

On Galileo, the VIN pin can be used to supply 5V from the regulated power supply connected at the power jack to attached shields or devices. If there is a need to supply more than 5V to a shield using VIN then the VIN jumper should be removed from Galileo to break the connection between the on-board 5V supply and the VIN connection on the board header.

Warning: If the VIN jumper is not removed and more than 5V is connected to VIN, it may damage the board or lead to unreliable operation.

Automatic (Software) Reset

Rather than requiring a physical press of the reset button before an upload, Galileo is designed in a way that allows it to be reset by software running on a connected computer. USB CDC-ACM control signals are used to transition Galileo from run-time to bootloader mode. The Arduino software uses this capability to allow you to upload code by simply pressing the upload button in the Arduino environment.

Physical Characteristics

Galileo is 4.2-inches long and 2.8-inches wide respectively, with the USB connectors, UART jack, Ethernet connector, and power jack extending beyond the former dimension. Four screw holes allow the board to be attached to a surface or case. Note that the distance between digital pins 7 and 8 is 160 mil (0.16"), is not an even multiple of the 100mil spacing of the other pins.
