It takes the form of a breakout board for Intel Edison Compute Module providing interfaces and connectors to additional modules, such as sensors, touch switches, motor controllers and LED drivers and GPS.
It is likely to be used for IoT design prototyping but can also be used as an educational aid.
Called Explore E the breakout board includes two proprietary duoNECT connectors for expansion modules – GPIO, SPI, UART and I2C interfaces connectors, two micro USB (USB OTG and USB/UART converter).
There is also a 12-bit analogue-to-digital converter for measuring analog signals, voltage logic level translators (tolerates +3,3V/+5V signals).
The IoT module also supports a GPS peripheral.
