At the 2016 Intel Developer Forum, Intel announced the availability of the Joule Module, a Linux system on module that offers high computational power, RAM, and storage. This Grove shield introduces the family of Grove modules to the powerful Intel JouleTM, aims at helping inventors and IoT developers create there project more convenient and faster.
By simply plugging it on your Joule board, it will own 8 solid and easy-to-use Grove connectors which includes interfaces like I2C, UART, digital I/Os and analog inputs right away. In addition to rich Grove connectors, the shield also keeps 2x20 pin headers in case you want more GPIOs for the project. An integrated switch on the board allows you to select the working voltage at either 5V or 3.3V.
Please pay attention to the orientation when you are plugging the shield.
Libmraa does not support the UART pins of Joule for the time being. So the UART interface is not available.
Interfaces: 8 Grove connectors
Interfaces Detail: I2C x 3, UART x 1, Digital x 2, Analog x 2
Working Voltage: 5V/3.3V
A switch for selecting working voltage.
4 channel analog interface, Resolution: 12 Bits
Working temperature: -40 - 85℃
|Dimensions||140mm x75mm x27mm|

Wiki of Grove Shield for Intel Joule
Didn't Work I used the Grove Shield with an Intel Joule 570x and several Grove sensors, for example the Grove Sound Sensor, Motion Sensor, and LED. The Joule was never able to detect a sensor on any pin. I bought another shield in case the first was faulty and had the same result. I used an Intel Edison kit to get things working instead.
