Getting started
You do not need these slides:
• If your board is already configured and accessible with the wifi,
these slides are optionals.
• If you are in a workshop/hackathon or else,
managed by the Intel-Software-Academic-Program team,
you should probably not follow the slides.
You probably need these slides:
If your Edison is a new one
you will find what you need to update the board here.
You should find these parts:
- 4 Plastic pods
- 4 Screws
- 2 Tiny bolts
- 1 breakout board
- 1 Edison board
Plug the Edison board
on the Arduino breakout board
Don’t push on the Edison shield! It might damage it!
Be sure to snap correctly the edison board on the breakout board.
You should hear a *click* sound when it is plugged correctly.
- Hand tighten the hex nuts onto
the two screws
- Insert the screws into the holes
on the edges of the Arduino
board and screw them into the
white plastic spacers.
Powering the board
These is several ways to
power the board:
- Usb cable on J16
- Power supply
- Battery on J2
Let’s start by plugging
the two USB cables.
You should see a green led on the board lighting up
Connecting - Windows
Connecting from Windows
- Plug the power supply on J1
- Plug the usb cable on J3 (the futher to the little switch)
and plug it to your computer.
- A new memory drive should show up
USB-Serial drivers :
Edison drivers :
Connecting from Windows
Open the device manager
Find the COM number of USB Serial
Port. Here it is COM11.
Connecting from Windows
Terminal : Putty
No installation is required, simply double click on putty.exe
o Select Session category
o Connection type : Serial
o Serial line : enter com port
found in the previous slide
o Speed : 115200
o Finally click on Open
A shell should show up.
If nothing appears
press Enter twice.
Connecting - Linux
Connecting from Linux
Plug the board
- Plug the power supply on J1
- Plug the usb cable on J3 (the futher to the little switch)
and plug it to your computer.
- A new memory drive should show up
Install GtkTerm
sudo apt-get install gtkterm
Run gtkterm in sudo mode : # sudo gtkterm
Go into configuration tab
Use port /dev/ttyUSB0 with Baud rate 115200
Connecting from Linux
Log on Edison
Press Enter two times if the prompt doesn’t show up
Type root as login
You are now connected on Edison.
Flashing - Linux
Flashing the board (optional)
• Download the “Edison Yocto complete image”
from https://communities.intel.com/docs/DOC-23242
• Extract the downloaded file into the Edison drive
• Let the Edison connected to the computer with the serial port
Flashing the board (optional)
• Reboot the Edison by pressing the RESET button (SW1UI5)
• When the Edison is booting, press a key to interrupt the autoboot
• A prompt shows up. Type:
~# run do_ota
• The Edison will reboot several times. It should take 1 or 2 minutes.
Flashing the board (optional)
• Login as root
• Run the command:
~# configure_edison –-setup
• This command will going through Device name,
password and wifi configuration.
• To reconfigure specific items,
run the configure script with arguments : see the following slides
Configuring - Linux
Configuring Edison - Name
In order to rename your Edison use the command :
~# configure_edison –name
Configuring Edison - Password
To change the root password use the command :
~# configure_edison –password
Configuring Edison - Wifi
To configure the Wifi use the command
~#configure_edison –wifi
Once the Wifi is set up, you should be
able to ping your Edison from
another computer on the same
You should also be able to see a
status webpage at the address:
Why ?
Edison is a connected platform, with Wifi included.
You have to use the serial-over-usb for the initial configuration,
but it may be easier for you to use a regular ssh connection over wifi
after the initial configuration phase.
For better reception, we recommend you buy an antenna compatible
with the Edison antenna plug.
ssh to the IP of the Edison board, with root as login and the password
you defined during the initial phase.
On Windows you can use Puty as ssh client
On Linux or Mac you can directly use ssh from the terminal.
