GPIO Block for Intel® Edison: your Intel® Edison’s development block

The Intel® Edison board is an ideal and comprehensive computing platform for fans of embedded electronics, the Internet of Things and home-automation creations. Not only does it offer a lot of RAM and flash memory space, but it’s also equipped with a WiFi module and a Bluetooth Low Energy module to multiply your project’s communication possibilities.

Whereas the Raspberry Pi B+ offers 27 GPIO pins on a standard 0.1” (2.54 mm) connector, the Intel® Edison board has 70 GPIO pins, including the I2C, UART, SPI, I2S and PWM pins you’ll need for your creations.

And to make these various pins more accessible for your prototyping operations, SparkFun has included a GPIO development board as part of its range of stackable blocks. Connecting your Intel® Edison microcontroller to your GPIO Block is child’s play!

GPIO Block for Intel® Edison: your Intel® Edison’s GPIO extension

The SparkFun GPIO Block gives you access to all your Intel® Edison’s basic GPIO pins, as well as the PWM and UART2 I/Os.

For each of these I/Os, you can select a 3.3 V or VSYS output voltage. The GPIO extension block also gives you access to the 3 power rails available on the Intel® Edison board (3.3 V, 1.8 V and VSYS). In addition, the GND pin is available for prototyping operations.
