Arduino Genuino 101 / Intel Curie Getting Started

Introduction

In this tutorial, we are going to discuss in short about the features of Arduino Genuino 101/Intel Curie board. We will see the hardware specifications and the applications of the Arduino Genuino 101/Intel Curie board.

Features

  • The Arduino Genuino 101/Intel Curie board is almost the size of Arduino uno but extremely powerful board.
  • It has an operating voltage of 3.3V but it can tolerate 5V. Arduino Genuino 101 / Intel Curie board has 14 digital I/O pins out of which 4 have capability of PWM output.
  • It comes with 6 analog pins. With flash memory of 196 kB and SRAM of 24 kB, it is decently fast for running some complex applications.
  •  Arduino Genuino 101 / Intel Curie board comes with two tiny cores, an X86 (Quark) and a 32 bit ARC architecture core, both clocked at 32Mhz.
  • Arduino Genuino 101 / Intel Curie has Real-Time Operating Systems (RTOS) and framework developed by Intel is open sourced.
  •  The Arduino core communicates with the RTOS via static mailboxes to accomplish a predefined list of tasks. (interface with PC using USB, program the sketch into flash, expose Bluetooth LE functionality to sketch, perform PWM). The RTOS for Arduino Genuino 101 / Intel Curie is still under development and new functions and features will be released in the near future.
  • With built in Bluetooth LE, 6-axis accelerometer/gyro Arduino Genuino 101 / Intel Curie is really powerful to develop applications like steps counter, gesture controlled applications, air mouse and many other cools stuff.
