The board is new and can be purchased from “google” here. The mouser part number is: 212-193575000077 

You can get it up and running by following the Google Coral documentation. Im going to start with the Google Coral Getting Started Guide.

Following The Guide

Google also mentions you will need a Linux computer to get the board up and running. 

If this is your first time working with Linux, I do not recommend trying to use your daily driver computer as a duel boot system. I have never had good luck with duel boot either. It will save you countless hours to just go buy an old computer from Craigslist or Campus Surplus, install Ubuntu on it, and keep a dedicated Linux Machine around.

If you are not extremely expert in Virtual Machines, I do not recommend trying to do or a VM or Virtual Box Linux setup because VMs rarely work well with peripherals without buying a license

We will cover the the terminal commands in case you are not familiar with them.

sh -C

The sh -C command is used to read commands from a file and execute those commands. sh is the underlying command that allows you run scrips using your operating system. You can read more about it in the openBSD manual.

udevadm control

The udevadm control command modifies the internal state of the running udev daemon. In other words it modifies udev, which is a background processes. 

Udev keeps track of the devices that are currently hooked up and present on the system. It actually names these devices or removes the files when a device is no longer present. The files that udev keeps track of are located in the /dev folder. Udev also keeps track of network devices.

–reload-rules reloads reloads the rules file in the udev daemon. 

What are daemons? Well, a daemon is nerd speak for a background process. Once you start throwing daemon around the office, I’m sure your pay will go up by 10%. You can read more about daemons here. You can read about the fascinating entomology here. Daemon is an ancient Greek word that means half human and half deamon.
