Intel® Edison and Mini Breakout Kit
Intel® Edison and Mini Breakout Kit: the complete kit for IoT creators
Designed by Intel, the Intel® Edison and Mini Breakout Kit includes the 2 essential items needed to implement your Intel® Edison computing platform, namely:
- The Intel® Edison board
- The mini development board for Intel® Edison
The Intel® Edison board is the new computing platform designed for developing applications and prototyping creations making use of the Internet of Things or home automation. It includes a powerful dual core CPU and manages both a WiFi module and a Bluetooth Low Energy module. This ultra-compact board also incorporates a 70-pin 1.8 V I/O connector and 40 GPIO pins compatible with the Arduino programming environment.
The development board provides everything you need to operate your Intel® Edison, i.e. a power supply, a battery charger, a USB OTG power switch, a UART-to-USB bridge, a USB OTG port and an I/O connector. In practice, you just need to plug your Intel® Edison into this 70-pin 1.8 V I/O connector to get started! The development board also includes an area dedicated to prototyping.
Uses for the Mini Breakout Kit for Intel® Edison
Always wanted to create a sports wristband connected via Bluetooth, a webcam-controlled home automation security system or any other kind of small object for managing DIY Internet applications? Then this Mini Breakout Kit for Intel® Edison is just the thing for you! It allows you to finalise your prototypes and carry out your programming using Arduino or another Linux-based language, such as C, C++, Python and plenty more!
