how to create a bootable sd card for intel gallileo i have been facing problems while following instructionsfrom intel website . can anyone help me regarding this..?? and also how to interface a load cell with intel galileo board..??

Jump to solution

i need information regarding load cell interfacing with galileo for my project so can anyone help me with this. i also need to know about creating a bootable sd card and dump my program in it for running it when disconnected with my laptop. itz urgent so plz help me. do the needful.im doing the programming in arduino using c n c++ .

Thanks,

Hello maithu1104,

What kind of problems did you face? In order to use the SD card image you only have to decompress the image files in the SD card root directory. Make sure to format the SD card to FAT32 before copying the image files. The SD card image can be downloaded from the following link: http://downloadmirror.intel.com/24355/eng/SDCard.1.0.4.tar.bz2 http://downloadmirror.intel.com/24355/eng/SDCard.1.0.4.tar.bz2

Regarding the load cell, what kind of load cell do you have? If it has analogue output, then you can interface it with Galileo using the analogue inputs A0-A5, but you will probably need an amplifier between the Galileo and the load cell. There are a lot of examples and tutorials about using load cells with Arduino, you could check those examples and apply the principles to Galileo. The following is a good example that might help you to start with the project: http://www.instructables.com/id/Arduino-Load-Cell-Scale/?ALLSTEPS Arduino Load Cell / Scale - All

thank you DiegoV_Intel

 

your information regarding the load cell was helpful.. will be looking forward to implement the same in my project.

 

 

nn ya my query regarding the sd card was...im able to extract the files from the http://iotdk.intel.com/images/iot-devkit-latest-mmcblkp0.direct.bz2 http://iotdk.intel.com/images/iot-devkit-latest-mmcblkp0.direct.bz2. directory and create image using diskimager32 but my doubt is whether the sd is booting or not...!! nn if itz booting how will i know about it...!! i need to dump my project sketch into the sd card and run it as the sd card boots. bcoz power loss often tend to erase the sketches. DiegoV_Intel

 

 

i want to dump my program into sd card and run it .please help me out regarding this query. im using intel IDE and i dont have very much idea about other IDE's ...!!

 

thanking you,

regards,

As far as I know, the image you are using is the right one for the Intel IDE. "Sketch" is a way of referring to an Arduino sketch, and I think the image you are using as well as the Intel IDE are not intended for developing an Arduino sketch. Arduino sketches can be developed using the Intel-adapted Arduino environment. Also, the image you should use for sketch persistency (also provided by Intel) is rather different from the one you are using. In the specific case of Arduino (i.e. using a sketch), power loss does not "tend" to erase an sketch: without an SD card the sketch is not persistent, with an SD card, the sketch is persistent (as long as the SD card is plugged in, of course). I've not experimented much with XDK (the Intel IDE), but I think it does not use the term "sketch" for programs developed for Galileo, they are just projects (as usual in most IDEs, btw).

I think the first question is: what IDE do you want to use (Arduino or Intel XDK)?

HTH,

Fernando.

Hello maithu1104,

According to your first post I understand that you are using the Arduino IDE. If so, I recommend you to use the following image: http://downloadmirror.intel.com/24355/eng/SDCard.1.0.4.tar.bz2 http://downloadmirror.intel.com/24355/eng/SDCard.1.0.4.tar.bz2.

In order to make the SD card bootable, you only have to decompress the image files in the SD card root directory. Just make sure that the SD card has been formatted to FAT32 before copying the image files.

On the other hand, in order to know if the Galileo is booting from the SD card image, you can open a terminal session and check the booting process. You should see a blue square like the screenshot below. If you see a red square instead, that means that the Galileo is booting from the internal image, and not from the SD card image.

Regards,

Diego.
