Arduino Announces Two New Linux Boards

Just before the launch of Maker Faire Rome, the Arduino team made a big splash by announcing two new Linux boards, each in collaboration with a different semiconductor company. The first is Galileo, which is made in collaboration with Intel:Intel® Galileo board is the first product in a new family of Arduino Certified boards featuring Intel architecture. The platform is easy to use for beginners and for those looking to take designs to the next level.Overall, the Intel Galileo development board is a great tool for quickly prototyping simple interactive designs like LED light displays that respond to social media, or for tackling more complex projects from automating home appliances to building life-size robots that you control from your smartphone.Building on the Galileo development board, Intel and the Arduino community will work closely together on future products that bring the performance, scalability and possibilities of Intel technology to this growing community of makers.During How to reMake the World conference, Intel Corporation CEO Brian Krzanich announced a large-scale donation of 50,000 Intel® Galileo boards to be given to 1,000 universities worldwide over the next 18 months.The second board announced today is the Arduino TRE which was made in collaboration Texas Instruments. It uses their new Sitara AM335x Processor and is the first Arduino board manufactured in the United States.
