Using the SD card reader to log data

In the last recipe of the chapter, we are going to see how to use a device that is already integrated with the Intel Galileo board: the SD card reader. We will see how to use it to log data measured by the Galileo board.

Getting ready

For this project, you will need two extra components along with the Galileo board. You will first need a micro SD card to log data using the SD card reader. If you followed the recipes in the previous chapter, you should already have an SD card on your Intel Galileo board.

I also used a simple TMP36 temperature sensor to get some data to log on the SD card.

This is the list of the extra components that were used in this project:

You will also need to have your Galileo board ready to use with the Arduino IDE. Please refer to the first chapter if you haven't done this yet. This is a close-up picture of the SD card that was...
