    Edison Breakout Board + Arduino-Intel IDE (Is it possible?)


      Hello all,

      This is probably a very noobish question, but... Can I use the Intel-Arduino IDE to upload sketches to the breakout board version of the Edison? I read somewhere that people were using Eclipse, but I'm already familiar with the Arduino syntax of Java, and was wondering if Eclipse was the only IDE I can use, with Java? note: I have Eclipse for Arduino installed, but I don't use it much. Only when a sketch is particularly troublesome, and I need the more advanced debugger.


      I followed the "Breakout board blink" in the getting started forum, and was able to run the script using NodeJS interpreter, just fine. Using ArduinoIDE would help me a great deal in porting over my existing projects to the Edison. I also wanted to avoid the Arduino/Edison board because it is too big and bulky for my application.


      I tried to upload a simple Serial.print sketch through Intel-Arduino IDE, and it just hangs (doesn't say "Incomplete", it just hangs)


      Sorry if this is just cluttering the forum, I'm super new to all of this.




        int x = 0;

      void setup() {



      void loop() {

        while(x < 10){








      Binary sketch size: 72,974 bytes (of a 10,000,000 byte maximum) - 0% used

      cygwin warning:

        Preferred POSIX equivalent is: /cygdrive/c/CodeIDEs/arduino-1.5.3-Intel.1.0.4/hardware/arduino/edison/tools/izmir/clupload_win.sh

        CYGWIN environment variable option "nodosfilewarning" turns off this warning.

      COM PORT 7

        Consult the user's guide for more details about POSIX paths:





      Converted COM Port COM7 to tty port /dev/ttyS6

      echo "starting download script"

      Sending Command String to move to download if not already in download mode

      echo "Args to shell:" $*



      # ARG 1: Path to lsz executable.

      # ARG 2: Elf File to download

      # ARG 3: COM port to use.



      #path contains \ need to change all to /





      #COM ports are not always setup to be addressed via COM for redirect.

      #/dev/ttySx are present. Howwever, COMy -> /dev/ttySx where x = y - 1





      echo "COM PORT" $com_port_id


      echo "Converted COM Port" $com_port_arg "to tty port" $tty_port_id



      echo "Sending Command String to move to download if not already in download mode"

      echo "~sketch download" > $tty_port_id



      Deleting existing sketch on target

      #Move the existing sketch on target.

      echo "Deleting existing sketch on target"

      $fixed_path/lsz.exe --escape -c "mv -f /sketch/sketch.elf /sketch/sketch.elf.old" <> $tty_port_id 1>&0


      It just hangs there.
