This section contains steps to install the drivers required to connect to your Intel® Edison board, the development software (such as the Intel System Studio IoT Edition or the Intel® XDK) needed to program your board, and more.
See the appropriate link below:
Note: If you have a host computer with 64-bit Windows* or Mac* OS X*, you can use the setup tool to quickly and easily install drivers and flash your board with the latest version of the firmware. See the steps for Windows or Mac.
- Installing drivers for your board on a system with Windows* (manual process): If your host system has Windows*, you must ensure that you have the required drivers installed to communicate with your board. This section describes how to use the standalone driver installer to install required drivers if you have not already done so using the setup tool. If your system has Mac* OS X* or Linux*, the appropriate FTDI drivers should already be installed. If they are not, install them from the FTDI page at http://www.ftdichip.com/Drivers/D2XX.htm.
- Installing your integrated development environment (IDEs): This section contains links to choose and install your preferred IDE to program your board, based on the programming language you want to use.
- Updating the MRAA I/O and UPM sensor libraries: This section describes how to manually update the MRAA I/O and UPM sensor libraries, which make it easier for you to write code to have you board interact with sensors and actuators.
- Installing and managing board packages using OPKG: This section describes how to use OPKG to update and manage software packages from local package repositories.
