It has the power to change how we all think about embedded computing.
The module is equipped with a Linux OS based on Yocto, so you can compile C/C files, or run Python, Node.js, and other scripts.
We’ll walk you through everything from handling and powering the Edison to getting a console loaded up and connecting it to Wi Fi.
We’ll also cover how to program the Edison through the comfy confines of Arduino.
But, if you’re just getting started with embedded development, Arduino may be the easiest place to begin.
To use the FTDI, download the latest VCP drivers from their downloads page.On a Mac, after downloading and unzipping the application, we recommend renaming the “Arduino” app to something like “Arduino Edison”.You may also want to move the app to your Applications folder.The Edison packs a host of features, including Wi Fi (802.11a/b/g/n), Bluetooth (4.0 and 2.1 EDR), UARTs, IC, SPI, USB, and 40 GPIO.
It’s driven by a 32-bit Intel® Atom™ Processor clocked at 500MHz, supported by 1GB of LPDDR3 RAM and 4GB e MMC flash memory.
Likewise, Windows users with multiple Arduino installs should rename any shortcuts or folders to differentiate the Arduino for Edison application from the normal Arduino.
