Intel Edison breakout board - getting started

Jumpers / connectors

  • J3 = USB FTDI serial-to-USB (external power needed)
  • J16 = USB OTG. If you plug a micro A cable into this port, the Intel® Edison module will connect to a PC as the host; if you plug a micro B cable into this port, the Intel® Edison module will connect to the PC as a device.
  • J21 = main power input, 7 to 15 VDC.


  • Connect USB cable to J3.
  • Connect via USB-Serial device, 115k2 baud.
  • You will see this:
