Image credit: IEEE Electronics360Intel made a huge splash at the recent Maker Faire Bay Area this year showcasing its partners’ projects as well as its own Curie processor-based designs and the latest Arduino 101 plans.

However, the company is now backing away from its support for the maker community in terms of hardware as it has announced that it will no longer be selling the Curie module, meaning it will also be shortly removing the Arduino 101 from the market.

This move goes with Intel’s recent announcement that it was ending its other maker modules called Galileo, Joule and Edison.

Makers that want to buy some more of the Arduino 101 boards can do so up until Sept. 17 and the last delivery of the boards will take place on Dec. 17.

It is unclear if Intel plans to roll out a new board or if this is the death knell for its maker hardware program. The company continues to support, at least for now, its Maker Share program for tinkers and hobbyists to share their projects and receive documentation on how to build different projects.
