Mouser Electronics, Inc. is now shipping the highly anticipated Arduino 101 from Intel and Arduino. The Arduino 101 is the first widely available learning and development board based on the Intel® Curie™ module, delivering Intel performance with the simplicity of Arduino for entry-level makers and education environments. Additionally, with native Bluetooth® and sensor capabilities, the Arduino 101 is suited for prototyping wearable, Internet of Things (IoT), and mobile applications.
The Intel Arduino 101, now available from Mouser Electronics, features a 32-bit Intel® Quark™ microcontroller; 384 kBytes of flash memory; and 80 kBytes of SRAM, with 24 kBytes available for sketches — programs written using the Arduino integrated development environment (IDE). The Intel toolchain compiles the sketches across the Intel Quark core and 32-bit ARC architecture to accomplish the most demanding tasks. The board also includes an integrated DSP sensor hub, Bluetooth Low Energy radio, and six-axis combo sensor with accelerometer and gyroscope for connected motion-detection projects.
The Arduino 101 comes with 20 general-purpose input/output (GPIO) pins: 14 digital I/O pins (with four capable of being PWM outputs) and six analog inputs. The board also includes a USB connector for serial communication and sketch upload, a power jack, dedicated I2C pins, and an ICSP header with SPI signals. The board’s operating voltage and I/O is 3.3V, with 5V overvoltage protection for all pins. The Arduino 101 fits the form factor of the Arduino Uno, enabling experimentation with Arduino and third-party shields.
