@spike_johan Agreed. If there is one thing I can give Intel credit for it is moving fast for a big company to try something new and cut it loose if it's not working. Back in the dotcom boom they even dabbled with co-hosting data centers.

Intel is still in the Game

Great post - thanks. My key takeaway from what you wrote is Intel is still adaptable and flexable enough to know when it's time to cut and run. We've all watched too many companies throw good money after bad hoping to buy their way out of a bad situation.

So from my perspective, Intel knows its strengths and weaknesses and was adept enough to quickly shutdown a low margin product and refocus on the bigger Game.

With this footprint (and the embedded sensors in the same chip as the micro) going away, its back to the drawing board.    Thank you for the heads up to halt this fab effort !

When you have such a flex board ready, let me know!

Sorry to see this... The Curie chip was poised to be an enabler for MUCH smaller arduino compatible PCB designs (and more). Newark did a good job of laying out a tiny board (compared to Intel), but the PCB needed to be even smaller and on flex to really be disruptive.
