Yesterday it finally arrived: a nice looking edison board with the arduino breakout.

After installing the drivers and IDE (1.5.3-intel 1.0.4) I started to test basic sensors on it.

General testing scenario:
  • prove that a sketch and single and sensor works on a arduino micro, uno and yun
  • compile the sketch with the edison ide and connect the sensor on the exact same pins

Missing  libraries are obviously added to the edison ide before compiling.

Here some first findings:

-DHT11 test
Not possible to read from it

-Dallas temperature probe (one-wire on D2)
No possible to read from it. returns always -127

-Tiny RTC (I2C)
Compiler fails on time-related variables.

So far an extremely disappointing experience!

Seems I'll have to put this device aside until intel releases some software updates.


Maybe they should have named it Edsel then.....

Please don't PM for technical advice. Firstly my advice is sometimes wrong, and second, in the forum you get a broader, more timely, range of responses.

Blank sheet so you can start to write a history.

From talking to Intel guys at trade shows, the Arduino layer was an afterthought and didn't really receive a lot of work.

Yet from their own publicity
The Intel Edison module will initially support development with Arduino* and C/C++, followed by Node.JS, Python, RTOS, and Visual Programming support in the near future.
So it sounds like a lemon then?


Hey, do us a favour - if you are going to post a picture, focus it!

A couple of hints: Daylight, taken from no less than a meter and a half so the camera is able to focus, use (real, not "digital") zoom to ensure it fills the picture.  (And resize to no more than 1024 pixels wide - if (but only if) focused, you can see a lot of detail with that.)
