Galileo Experiment Guide
This Tutorial is Retired!
This tutorial covers concepts or technologies that are no longer current. It's still here for you to read and enjoy, but may not be as useful as our newest tutorials.
Ready to learn the basics and see your Galileo in action? The Galileo board is software-compatible with the Arduino Software Development Environment, which makes getting started a snap. From building simple circuits to creating a Simon Says game, you will have a better understanding on how to build circuits and how to work with the Galileo. With these skills you can then create your own awesome project!
In this SparkFun Inventor's Kit for Galileo guide, you will learn the following:
- SIK Galileo - Part 1: Blinking an LED
- SIK Galileo - Part 2: Reading a Potentiometer
- SIK Galileo - Part 3: Driving and RGB LED
- SIK Galileo - Part 4: Driving Multiple LEDs
- SIK Galileo - Part 5: Push Buttons
- SIK Galileo - Part 6: Reading a Photoresistor
- SIK Galileo - Part 7: Reading a Temperature Sensor
- SIK Galileo - Part 8: Driving a Servo Motor
- SIK Galileo - Part 9: Using a Flex Sensor
- SIK Galileo - Part 10: Reading a Soft Potentiometer
- SIK Galileo - Part 11: Using a Piezo Buzzer
- SIK Galileo - Part 12: Driving a Motor
