We have prepared the code in Arduino IDE and are trying to dump the code on to the board.The board will be interfaced with GSM SIM900A and GPRS module and an accelerometer ADXL 335.

The code is written using SoftwareSerial.h library package to enable the serial communication with the external Interface.But since this board does not support this file, there is a fatal error being flashed every time we try to compile.So what is the alternate library package that can be used?

Otherwise do we have to go with hardware connection to FTDI ports?

Hi RohiniBMSCE23,

Let's try with this one. It is a workaround that may help you on your project. -> https://github.com/MakersTeam/Galileo/tree/master/Arduino-Examples/SoftwareSerial Galileo/Arduino-Examples/SoftwareSerial at master · MakersTeam/Galileo · GitHub

Things to be considered

  • This workaround only work for Galileo Gen2.
  • Only the pins 2 and 3 can be used for this purpose.
  • The directory SoftwareSerial_Gen2 contains the files SoftwareSerial.cpp and SoftwareSerial_Class.h. This directory has to be copied in the Arduino libraries folder.

Hi RohiniBMSCE23,

Which Arduino IDE version are you using? Also, could you post the entire error you are getting?

Regards,

Charlie
