You can connect digital and analog sensors, and integrate different communication protocols, using the same pinout of Arduino but with the power and capabilities of Intel core. Galileo comes with a single-core 32-bit, 400MHz Quark SoC X1000 processor, supports 3.3 or 5 volt shields and has an Ethernet and USB port. Don't forget the software of Galileo includes support for the Arduino shield ecosystem. You will be able to connect any Arduino Wireless module (WiFi, GPRS, 3G), sensor or actuator which works over i2C, SPI or UART.
We have created a full pool of examples! You can read how to get started with the board and the processor features in our complete tutorial. Don't forget to check the complete list of modules and shields available for Intel Galileo.
