The Arduino Industrial 101 is a WiFi evaluation board for the Arduino 101 LGA module based on a MIPS Linux processor. With the Industrial 101 you will possess a fantastic addition to the Arduino family and be able to easily create IoT projects without the need for multiple shields. Similar to the Arduino Yun (in a small form-factor), the Industrial 101 integrates an ATmega32U4 and the Atheros AR9331 SoC to make a dependable evaluation resource!
The onboard ATmega32u4 microcontroller has been integrated into the baseboard of the Industrial 101, while the LGA module supports a Linux distribution based on OpenWRT named LininoOS. The board has built-in WiFi (IEEE 802.11b/g/n operations up to 150Mbps 1x1 2.4GHz), three GPIOs (of which two can be used as PWM outputs), four analog inputs, one USB, one Ethernet signal on pin headers and a built-in DC/DC converter.
The antenna connector on the Yun, Tian and Yun Industrial boards are a Murata SWF connector. We don't currently have a source for an adapter for these unfortunately. More information can be found on this Murata page.
If a board needs code or communicates somehow, you're going to need to know how to program or interface with it. The programming skill is all about communication and code.
Skill Level: Rookie - You will need a better fundamental understand of what code is, and how it works. You will be using beginner-level software and development tools like Arduino. You will be dealing directly with code, but numerous examples and libraries are available. Sensors or shields will communicate with serial or TTL.

If it requires power, you need to know how much, what all the pins do, and how to hook it up. You may need to reference datasheets, schematics, and know the ins and outs of electronics.
Skill Level: Rookie - You may be required to know a bit more about the component, such as orientation, or how to hook it up, in addition to power requirements. You will need to understand polarized components.

hello there. how do u think, is it suitable for a novice? don't wanna buy a lot of boards — wanna buy a decent one instead, with an IoT potential underhood. Yun seems a bit overpriced to me. will I be able to complete some basic projects with it, no prior experience? Is it shield-compatible?
No. I had reservations about the Arduino 101 (A project of Intel as much as Arduino with a x86 Quark chip) Definitely don't mess with the "industrial version." Yun has a linux System-on-a-chip microprocessor. It is a complete sub-microcomputer. (maybe they'll start calling them picocomputers?) Other Arduinos are based on microcontrollers. You cannot run linux on an Arduino Uno, for example. (nor would you want to). If you want to attempt projects like home video servers or video game emulation; projects that require very little knowledge of electronics, where you can solve more problems with software, I'd go with the Raspberry Pi. If you want to learn about circuits and sensors, and electronics in general, you want to go with Arduino. Both of them are good for learning programming, but RPi more for something like web scripting, or interfacing with PC and small networks. Arduino is for programming appliances, robots, etc. The Holy Grail is combining the two in the Internet of Things, and Arduino 101 is an example of one failure to do that Yun (and imitations) is also a combo attempt, I'd say if you were already invested in Arduino, and were familiar with Arduino "Hats," Yun would be the way to go, and quite reasonably priced as far as what it is capable of doing.
The documentation on this product is horrible. I can't believe this from Arduino.
Are you reviewing the "Arduino Industrial 101?" what did you think "industrial" meant.
There is change in the air (hopefully for the better)
Can I run bare metal code on the big processor?
