Grove IoT Developer Kit - Microsoft Azure Edition contains an Intel® Edison module, an Intel® Edison for Arduino board, a Grove Base Shield, a set of Grove sensors and actuators with built-in Grove ports for rapid prototyping. Simply plug in the modules and you are ready to create. Part of Microsoft Azure IoT ecosystem.
About Intel® Edison For Arduino:
The Intel® Edison compute module is designed for expert makers, entrepreneurs, and some industrial IoT applications, it provides ease-of-development for a range of prototyping projects or commercial ventures when performance matters. With an expansion board interfaces with a wide range of Arduino shields, Intel® Edison for Arduino allows quick and easy prototyping with open source hardware and a software development environment.
Intel® Edison module:
It uses a 22nm Intel® SoC that includes a dual core, dual threaded Intel® Atom™ CPU at 500MHz and a 32-bit Intel® Quark™ microcontroller at 100 MHz. It supports 40 GPIOs and includes 1GB LPDDR3, 4 GB EMMC, and dual-band WiFi and BTLE on a module slightly larger than a postage stamp.
The Intel Edison module will initially support development with Arduino and C/C++, followed by Node.JS, Python, RTOS, and Visual Programming support in the near future.It includes a device-to-device and device-to-cloud connectivity framework to enable cross-device communication and a cloud-based, multi-tenant, time-series analytics service.
It has an SD card connector, micro USB or standard sized USB host Type-A connector(via mechanical switch), Micro USB device, 6 analog inputs, and 20 ditial input/output pins, 1x UART, 1x I2C, and 1x ICSP 6-pin header (SPI) Power jack with 7V-15V DC input.
