What is the 101?

alt text

The Arduino 101 is a learning and development board that delivers the performance and low-power consumption of the Intel Curie module with the simplicity of Arduino at an entry-level price. This development board keeps the same robust form factor and peripheral list of the UNO with the addition of on-board Bluetooth Low Energy capabilities and a 6-axis accelerometer and gyroscope called an Inertial Measurement Unit (IMU) to help you easily expand your creativity into the connected world.

The Intel Curie module contains two tiny cores, an x86 (Quark) and a 32-bit ARC architecture core, both clocked at 32MHz. The Intel tool chain compiles your Arduino sketches optimally across both cores to accomplish the most demanding tasks. The Arduino 101 board comes with 14 digital input/output pins (of which four can be used as PWM outputs), six analog inputs, a USB connector for serial communication and sketch upload, a power jack, an ICSP header with SPI signals and I2C dedicated pins. The board operating voltage and I/O is 3.3V, but all pins are protected against 5V overvoltage.
