Arduino – Intel Galileo

Yesterday, one of my lecturers was kind enough to give me an Intel Galileo Arduino styled board to test out and have a bit of a play with. I managed to get some of the standard Arduino functions working, analog read, PWM and GPIO toggling. At the moment, I’m not actually particularly impressed, using standard digital writes allows a toggle speed of ~150Hz which to me is immensely slow considering my £9 STM32F0 discovery board can switch at well more than 100kHz! It seems that this is down to I2C GPIO Expander which I think isn’t a particularly wise method of expansion anyway, even more so that it only supports 100kHz I2C too. If I manage any cool projects, I’ll post them here!
