Description: The Intel® Galileo Gen 2 board is based on the Intel® Quark SoC X1000, a 32-bit Intel Pentium®-class system on a chip (SoC). It is the first board based on Intel® architecture designed to be hardware and software pin-compatible with shields designed for the Arduino Uno R3.
The Galileo board is also software-compatible with the Arduino Software Development Environment, which makes getting started a snap.
In addition to Arduino hardware and software compatibility, the Galileo board has several PC industry standard I/O ports and features to expand native usage and capabilities beyond the Arduino shield ecosystem. A full sized mini-PCI Express slot, 100Mb Ethernet port, Micro-SD slot, USB TTL UART header, USB Host port, USB Client Port, and 8 MByte NOR flash come standard on the board.
The genuine Intel processor and surrounding native I/O capabilities of the SoC provides for a fully featured offering for both the maker community and students alike. It will also be useful to professional developers who are looking for a simple and cost effective development environment to the more complex Intel® Atom™ processor and Intel® Core™ processor-based designs.
Note: The Galileo does NOT come with a USB microB cable, this will need to be purchased separately. We are currently updating our photos to reflect this change by Intel®.

I am unable to get at the console; I was hoping to be able to ssh into the ethernet port with ssh.
How do enable the ssh server and how do I enable the ethernet port?
Also in order to do this, I believe that I would need access to the console. Where and how do I access the system console?

If you try to program a Gen2 board with Gen1 selected in the IDE (or vice versa) the IDE will successfully upload to the board, but the code will not work. (No errors, IDE says upload successful.) The actual upload goes OK, but the files the IDE generates are different for each generation and are not compatible with the other’s hardware. The more you know!
