Intel® Edison Compute Module

• The Intel® Edison is a 500 MHz Dual-Core, Dual-Threaded Atom processor and Intel Quark 100 MHz microcontroller, System-on-a-Chip (SoC)
• Support for more than 30 industry-standard I/O interfaces via a 70-pin connector
• Integrated Dual Band Wi-Fi, Bluetooth 4.0 LE + 2.1 EDR
• On board antenna or u.FL connector for external antenna
• Support for Yocto Linux, Arduino, Python, Node.js, and Wolfram

What is the Intel Edison Compute Module?
The Intel Edison Compute Module is a System-on-a-Chip (SoC) which consists of a 500 MHz Dual-Core, Dual-Threaded Atom Processor, as well as a 100 MHz Intel Quark Microcontroller in a single chip. The Edison offers support for more than 30 industry-standard I/O interfaces via a 70-pin connector. The Edison Module provides 4 GB worth of storage, as well as providing Dual Band Wi-Fi as well as Bluetooth through the chip alone.

The Edison Module itself is a substantially better equipped version of the microcontroller chips you would find as a centrepiece of any usual Arduino Board. The module supports the use of Arduino IDE, Yocto Linux, Python, Node.js and Wolfram.

Reasons to pick the Intel Edison Compute Module?
You would pick the Intel Edison Compute Module because you are not limited to using a certain size, or shape board, with prefixed pin outs offering no variation. The module uses a standardised 70-pin out allowing you to find or make the board of your choice, that fits your exact requirements, and build around the Edison Module itself.

A secondary reason to pick the Edison Module would be its incredible power in comparison to most other microcontrollers, being able to store a lot more code, and function. with a substantial amount more I/O connections, while already supplying any wireless connectivity requirements.

Connectivity and Expansion
The Intel Edison Compute Module comes packed with possibilities, providing Dual Band Wi-Fi as well as Bluetooth 4.0 + 2.1, there is also a u.FL connector for an external antenna should you be using a metal case, or constructing a large scale project.

While conforming to industry standards, you can use the Edison Module with many development or breakout boards. Many compatible development and breakout boards allow quick connection to Arduino Shields, and other similar further breakouts, be sure to visit our range of Arduino accessories should you use one of the relevant boards.

What will you make?
Depending on how you use your Intel Edison Compute Module, you could be offered great potential:
from a basketball robot,
develop an auto balancing robot,
or you can even see who’s at the door.
