To further spur innovation across the entire computing spectrum, Intel provided 50,000 Intel® Galileo boards featuring the new Intel® Quark™ technology to universities worldwide. The development boards, in the Arduino* form factor favored by the maker community, enable university students to innovate at the lower end of the spectrum with inventions that will be compatible with other Intel® architecture-based devices in the Internet of Things.
The program includes the following:
We have shipped thousands of boards to universities that are integrating them into their curriculum.
Many schools are using the boards in introductory embedded computing or microcontroller courses. Others plan to use the boards for senior level classes or to provide increased compute power for existing projects. See a summary of the breadth of proposed applications or check out the Intel® Galileo Tech Talks, Curriculum, and Projects, where universities will be sharing content and ideas.
"As a maker myself, I'm passionate about the exciting possibilities of technology and what can be created through self-made invention. We look forward to a productive collaboration with Arduino and to providing this community with some incredible Intel® products that will help push the boundaries of all our imaginations."
Intel CEO Brian Krzanich
