Arduino 101 : Implementing the basics

Arduino 101 is an electronics board that makes it easy to test out some simple IOT examples. It is not quite ready for IOT but you can do some Bluetooth tests with it. It also has built-in 6-axis accelerometer and gyroscope.  It has 14 digital input/output pins (of which 4 can be used as PWM outputs); 6 analog inputs; an USB connector for serial communication and sketch upload, a power jack, an ICSP header with SPI signals and I2C dedicated pins. These peripherals are the same ones you find on Arduino UNO.  Optionally, the USB connector also supplies power to the board.

This post shows how to work with Arduino 101 using the Arduino 1.8.3 program. You can test using the Blink program; a program that you upload to the board that makes an LED to blink.
