The Genuino 101 is a learning and development board that delivers the performance and low-power consumption of the Intel® Curie module with the simplicity of Arduino at an entry-level price. This development platform keeps the same robust form factor and peripheral list of the UNO with the addition of onboard Bluetooth LE capabilities and a 6-axis accelerometer/gyro to help you easily expand your creativity into the connected world.
The Intel® Curie module contains two tiny cores, an x86 (Quark) and a 32-bit ARC architecture core, both clocked at 32MHz. The Intel toolchain compiles your Arduino sketches optimally across both cores to accomplish the most demanding tasks. The Genuino 101 comes with 14 digital input/output pins (of which 4 can be used as PWM outputs), 6 analog inputs, a USB connector for serial communication and sketch upload, a power jack, an ICSP header with SPI signals and I2C dedicated pins. The board operating voltage and I/O is 3.3V but all pins are protected against 5V overvoltage.
Note: The Genuino 101 is only available for customers in the countries detailed on [this list](https://cdn.sparkfun.com/datasheets/Dev/Arduino/Boards/Genuino101-ATLASEDGE4 Countries.pdf). If you are located in the United States be sure to check out the Arduino 101 instead. Sorry, world!
Note: The Real-Time Operating Systems (RTOS) and framework developed by Intel is scheduled to be open sourced in March 2016. Until then, it's not possible to interface with it directly; only the Arduino core can do it via static mailboxes.

What is the difference between this board and retired one (DEV-13850) ?
Lawyers, lots and lots of lawyers. In all seriousness the only difference between the Arduino 101 and Genuino 101 is the silk on the board identifying it as such. With Arduino LLC and Arduino SRL fighting like a couple of toddlers over trademarks we have ended up with different names for different parts of the world. The Arduino 101 can only be sold in the US. The Genuino can be sold...? Well that's the difference between the new version and the old one. On the massive list of countries it can be sold in, this version can be sold in a few more. That's it.
P.S. Arduino and Arduino are now trying to make up.
