Introduction: LinkIt One Easy Setup
Hello, This is the first project to a long series that will lead up to some amazing projects! I hope you will find my projects very helpful and tag along. After searching the internet for a few days i found out the linkit one board doesn't have much documentation. I have read the entire MediaTek Dev Guide and have simplified it into simple easy instructables project for you! I hope you find my linkit projects helpful!!
Step 1: Prepare Your PC and Linkit One Board

Here is written steps for installing the board
Make sure your computer is connected to the iternet. Then open up Boards Manager by choosing `Tools > Board > Boards Manager`. It may take several seconds for the manager to download the repository. There should now be an LinkIt ONE item appearing in the boards list. Click on it and a "Install" button appears. If there is too many items in the boards manager, set the `Type` filter to "Contributed". After installation, close and relaunch Arduino IDE.
