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.
Unboxing You should find these parts: -4 Plastic pods -4 Screws -2 Tiny bolts -1 breakout board -1 Edison board
Assembling Plug the Edison board on the Arduino breakout board Be sure to snap correctly the edison board on the breakout board. You should hear a *click* sound when it is plugged correctly. Don’t push on the Edison shield! It might damage it!
Assembling -Hand tighten the hex nuts onto the two screws
Assembling -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 from Windows Cables -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 Drivers USB-Serial drivers : http://www.ftdichip.com/Drivers/CDM/CDM%20v2.10.00%20WHQL%20 Certified.exe http://www.ftdichip.com/Drivers/CDM/CDM%20v2.10.00%20WHQL%20 Certified.exe Edison drivers : https://communities.intel.com/docs/DOC-23242 https://communities.intel.com/docs/DOC-23242
Connecting from Windows Open the device managerFind the COM number of USB Serial Port. Here it is COM11.
Connecting from Windows Terminal : Putty http://the.earth.li/~sgtatham/putty/latest/x86/putty.exe 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 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 the board (optional) Preparation Download the “Edison Yocto complete image” from https://communities.intel.com/docs/DOC-23242https://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) Procedure 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) Configuration 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 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 network. You should also be able to see a status webpage at the address: http://192.168.xxx.xxx
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. Antenna For better reception, we recommend you buy an antenna compatible with the Edison antenna plug. ssh 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.
