[ars] Intel powers an Arduino for the first time with new “Galileo” board

At IDF last month, Intel previewed its latest small chip initiative, Quark. Slotting in well below the Atom line, much less Haswell, Quark is aimed at that old chestnut, "the Internet of things." We were curious about when we'd see the first consumer Quark device, and it seems the time is now. At Maker Faire Rome today, Intel CEO Brian Krzanich introduced a collaboration between open source bastion Arduino and Intel's New Devices Group, and the first fruits of that collaboration are Galileo (PDF).

Typically driven by simple microcontrollers, basic Arduino boards are usually quite limited in connectivity, mainly USB and some Arduino-specific connectors. Expansion comes through those connectors, which allow daughterboards, called shields, to be layered atop the main board, adding additional I/O options. The ease of use—and ease of expansion—has long made the Arduino a favorite among the do-it-yourself crowd for things as simple as Christmas tree lights or as complex as a homebrewing robot.

Neat. More options sounds good to me. The only thing I have an Arduino powering right now is my 3D printer, maybe that will see some upgrades from this.
