Using Atom with Galileo Gen 2 Equivalent


I am using the Helium atom development board with a Siemens IOT2040, which is similar to an Intel Galileo Gen 2 board. I am using the Arduino library, however it is not compatible with the board as it is currently written; I am having problems getting the serial communication to work. There is a software library online for the Galileo Gen 2 to replace the existing SoftwareSerial class and make it work, however it does not appear to interface with the Atom correctly, potentially due to different pins.

Is there any way for a Helium developer to publish an Arduino codebase that is compatible with an Intel Galileo Gen 2 board, or refer me to some resources that I can use to adapt your code to use the board?

Thank you for your time,


Hi Chris,

The Intel Galileo Gen 2 is an end of life product and we are not currently supporting it for that reason. However, I do see it is supported in the Siemens hardware. If you can point us to where we can purchase one of these products we can help you with the port.
