Two years after launching the Curie-powered Arduino 101 maker board, Intel is calling it quits on the hardware.
The chipmaker has announced the end-of-life for its Curie Module, which launched in 2015. The module was integrated into the $30 Arduino 101, which became an Intel Quark-based alternative to the more common ARM-based Arduino boards.
Killing Curie and the Arduino 101 effectively ends Intel's maker-market exploration, unless it revives the maker board with another manufacturer.
Curie will be available until September 15 and Intel will stop taking orders for the Arduino 101 on September 17.
"After September 15, 2017, Intel will make its online resources available for review only and maintain availability to the Intel Curie community until June 15, 2020. Files licensed under open source licenses will continue to be generally available in binary and source code on GitHub," Intel notes on its developer forum.
