Genuino 101 delivers the performance and low-power consumption of the Intel® Curie™ processor with the simplicity of Genuino, all at an entry-level price. It includes onboard Bluetooth LE capabilities, perfect for communicating with smart phones and computers. The built-in six-axis accelerometer / gyroscope enables a variety of motion sensing applications. If you are familiar with the Uno, the Genuino 101 is a logical next step that adds exciting possibilities.
Genuino 101 uses the Curie module that contains two tiny cores, an x86 (Quark) and a 32-bit ARC architecture core, both clocked at 32MHz. The Intel toolchain compiles your Genuino sketches optimally across both cores to accomplish the most demanding tasks. The 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. Specific libraries support the Inertial Monitoring Unit (IMU) and the Bluetooth Low Energy chip, protocol and profiles. The board operating voltage and I/O is 3.3V but all pins are protected against 5V overvoltage. Some aspects about the Curie cores are still under development and this will bring new functionalities in the near future.
