The Ethernet connection for the Galileo board is made through the RJ45 connector, so ensure that you have a RJ45 cable around.
We will also use a TMP36 sensor that is a low voltage (2.7V to 5.5V) precision Centigrade temperature sensor. It has a scale factor of 10mV/ degree Celsius and an accuracy of +/- 2 degree Celsius over temperature.
The photocell used in this project has a light resistance of about 1k Ohm and a dark resistance of about 10k Ohm.
The other components that we will need are breadboard, male/male jumper wires, and a MicroSD card that is at least 4GB.
Here is a list of all the components used in this chapter:
