Galileo compatible with Arduino shields

Intel has announced a partnership with Arduino to build new open-source hardware for the do-it-yourself development platform. As part of the collaboration agreement, the chip maker has introduced a new board, Galileo, that is powered by the company's new Quark SoC and compatible with Arduino shield modules.

The board with integrate a Quark X1000 chip, which Intel recently introduced as a low-power component suitable for wearable devices. The 32-bit single-core, single-thread processor utilizes the Pentium instruction-set architecture and runs at up to 400MHz.

Users will be able to program the Linux-based board using Arduino software libraries, which can be used for a wide range of purposes. Intel suggests its hardware could be used for LED light displays that respond to social media, or for building life-size robots controlled by a smartphone.

The Galileo board is expected to be publicly available in late November.
