EEPROM on Intel Edison Arduino expansion board

Jump to solution

Hi,

Now I am developing an environmental monitoring system based on Intel Edison development board, and I want to store the vlaue of temperature and the value of PM2.5 locally.

I know that there is EEPROM part on Arduino, so I am eager to know is there the same part on my edison board.

From the observation I only find that there is a SD card slot on the expansion board, so I wonder that using Micro SD card is the only way to read and store the history data locally.

Thanks!

Hello doubleguan,

 

 

Thank you for your interest in Intel® Edison Breakout Board.

 

 

There isn't an EEPROM in the Edison board, you are correct when you mention that using a micro SD card is the only way to read and store the history locally.

 

 

You can do this with the Datalogger example from the Arduino IDE, or by using the SD as a booting device and saving the data there (https://communities.intel.com/docs/DOC-111602 https://communities.intel.com/docs/DOC-111602).

 

 

Please let me know if you find the previous information useful.

 

 

Regards,

 

Andres V.

Hi Andres V,

Thank you so much for your reply!

If I choose to store the data with the Datalogger example from the Arduino IDE, do I need to buy an etrax read-write module for my SD card which shown in the figure below, or I can do this by simply pluging a micro SD card into the SD card slot on my expansion board?

Thanks!

Intel Edison runs Linux, and has over 1GB of free space in it's permanent file system.

Since it runs Linux, use standard linux methods to store data to files.

For example in 'c' you can 'open' a file and then 'write' to it.

'close' the file when you are done.

To access the contents of the file you could use sftp or scp to copy the file from Edison to another place, or Node to make the contents of the file visible through a web interface.

Hello Guan Guan,

 

 

You don't need to buy any additional module, you can plug in a micro SD card into the slot of your expansion board.

 

 

Have a nice day.
