These instructions are for setting the Intel® Galileo board up to use Arduino. Looking for instructions to set up your Intel® Galileo board to use the Intel® XDK IoT Edition or the Intel® System Studio IoT Edition IDE?
- An Intel® Galileo Gen 1 or Gen 2 board
- One 5V DC power supply (for Gen 1) or one 7-15V DC power supply (for Gen 2). Your power supply should be included in the packaging along with your board.
- One micro-USB cable (Micro B to Type A)
- A Windows*, Mac* OS X*, or Linux* computer
Set up the board
- If you have a micro-SD card inserted into your board, remove it.
- Plug in the power supply to your board. Always plug in the power supply before the USB cable.
- Plug in the micro-USB cable to your board's USB clientport. Plug the other end in to your computer.
On the Intel® Galileo Gen 1 board, your setup should look like this:
On the Intel® Galileo Gen 2 board, your setup should look like this:
Use the Intel® Galileo board Windows installer for 64-bit Windows on the Downloads page to install necessary drivers and install Arduino in one simple process. If desired, update the firmware on your board to ensure that you have access to the latest features from Intel. Otherwise, skip ahead to running your first sample application in Arduino.
If you encounter an error using the installer or have a 32-bit Windows system, you can still install the drivers and Arduino manually. Start with Installing drivers and updating firmware for Arduino on a system with Windows*.
For Mac OS X and Linux:
