This Kit includes a tiny Edison fits nicely onto a breakout board - sort of like a tiny IoT sparrow into a very small nest, so you can expose the native 1.8 V I/O of the Edison.
And it is for non-Arduino users. This breakout board has a minimalistic set of features and is slightly larger than the Edison module.
Dimensions: 61mm x 29mm x 12mm
• Uses a 22nm Intel® SoC that includes a dual core, dual threaded Intel® Atom™ CPU at 500MHz and a 32-bit Intel® Quark™ microcontroller at 100 MHz. It supports 40 GPIOs and includes 1GB LPDDR3, 4 GB EMMC, and dual-band WiFi and BTLE on a module slightly larger than a postage stamp.
• The Intel Edison module will initially support development with Arduino* and C/C++, followed by Node.JS, Python, RTOS, and Visual Programming support in the near future.
• It includes a device-to-device and device-to-cloud connectivity framework to enable cross-device communication and a cloud-based, multi-tenant, time-series analytics service.
• The breakout board has exposes native 1.8V I/O of edison module. And 0.1'' grid I/O array of through-hole solder points. USB OTG with USB Micro Type-AB connector, USB OTG power switch. Battery Charge, USB to device UART bridge with USB Micro Type-B connector, DC power supply jack (7V – 15V DC input).
