Figure 2- You’ll need one of these USB cables.
Figure 3- You’ll also need one of these power cables.
To upload Arduino sketches the Intel® Galileo board must be powered up and connected to your computer.
Plug in the DC power supply into an outlet and into DC barrel jack on your Intel® Galileo board. You should see the green power LED light up near the USB port on the board. NOTE: If you are using the DC power supply included with the Intel® Galileo make sure you fit the apropriate plug.
Figure 4 - Intel® Galileo board with DC power plugged in and power LED lit
Plug the micro-USB cables to the micro USB connector on the board.
Figure 5 - Plug in USB cable into the micro USB port
Plug in other end of the usb cable to your computer.
Figure 6 - Plug the other end of the USB cable into your computer USB port
Wait a moment for the board to boot up. If you are plugging in your board for the first time and using Windows your computer will begin a driver install process. Allow this to complete before contining on.
Open the LED blink example sketch: File > Examples > 1.Basics > Blink. You should see a window similar to the one below.
Figure 7 - Blink example loaded into Arduino IDE
You'll need to select the Intel® Galileo in the Tools > Board menu.
Figure 8 - Select Intel® Galileo Gen2 from the Tools>Board menu
Select the serial device of the board from the Tools | Serial Port menu. The easiest way to find what port the board is using is by disconnecting your board, restarting the IDE, and re-opening the menu; the entry that disappears should be the Intel® Galileo board. Reconnect the board, restart the IDE, and select that serial port.
The port is likely to be COM3 or higher in the Device Manager, like in Figure 9. COM1 and COM2 are usually reserved for hardware serial ports.
Figure 9 - Select Intel Galileo Com Port (COM#)
Figure 10 - Select COM port from Tools>Serial Port menu is using Windows*
Now the bottom right should match the COM port number of the 'Intel Galileo Virtual Com Port (COM#)" from the Device Manager, like in Figure 11.
Figure 11 - The COM number should match the Intel Galileo Virtual Com Port (COM#).
The port is likely to be /dev/ttyACM0.
Figure 12 - Select /dev/ttyAMC0 from the Tools>Serial Port menu is using Linux*
The port is likely to be /dev/cu.usbmodemxxxx.
Figure 13 - Select /dev/cu.usbmodemxxxx from the Tools>Serial Port menu is using OS X*
Click the Upload button in the upper left to load and run the sketch on your board.
Figure 14 - Click the Upload button to upload and launch your sketch
You should see a "Done Uploading" and a "Transfer complete" when it has uploaded, like in Figure 15.
Figure 15 - You should see "Transfer complete"
The DS2 LED on your board should now blink with a 1 second delay.
Figure 16 - The LED closest to the USB port should now blink with a 1 second delay.
