 MinnowBoard MAX, Intel Edison Kit for Arduin, and/or Altera (now part of Intel) DE board

 Participants may use one or combination of the following 3 types of boards.

MinnowBoard MAX is an Intel® Atom™ processor based board which introduce Intel® Architecture to the small and low cost embedded market for the developer and maker community. They offer exceptional performance, flexibility, openness and standards.

Intel Edison is designed for expert makers, entrepreneurs, and industrial IoT companies, the Intel® Edison module provides ease-of-development with a fully open source hardware and software development environment for a range of products. The Intel Edison Kit for Arduino includes an Arduino breakout board, to give your Intel Edison compute module the ability to interface with Arduino shields or any board with the Arduino footprint.

DE1-SoC board is an updated DE1 board. It is useful for learning about digital logic, computer organization, and FPGAs. Featuring a Cyclone® V 5CSEMA5 FPGA which has an integrated dual-core ARM Cortex-A9. The DE1-SoC board is designed for university and college use. It is suitable for a wide range of university projects, from simple tasks to advanced designs.
