Computer Business Review
The first generation board was launched in December 2013.
Intel has revealed plans to launch Galileo 2.0, the second generation of the open-source computer.
Galileo, launched in December last year, is an open-source development board targeted at the 'maker' community including do-it-yourself crafters, engineers, artists and hobbyists.
The computer is based on Quark SoC X1000 application processor, a 32-bit Intel Pentium brand system on a chip (SoC). It supports the x86 and Linux software environments.
Intel CEO Brian Krzanich signed a collaboration agreement with open-source electronics prototyping platform Arduino in October 2013, to work closely to bring in compatibility.
Galileo is compatible with Arduino software development environment. According to Intel's website, "Galileo is the first board based on Intel architecture designed to be hardware and software pin-compatible with shields designed for the Arduino Uno R3".
Galileo, priced at about $65, has competitors in Raspberry Pi open source PC, Arduino Board, PandaBoard, and others that are priced lower.
