Intel Takes a Step Back In The Internet-of-things

A few weeks ago,  Intel has quietly discontinued its three SBC boards, the Joule, Edison and Galileo. These pretty much represented the presence of x86 chips in the IoT market.

SBCs are perfect for the IoT space. So, why would Intel kill off its SBC boards?

It could be read as an admittance that its IoT strategy has not been working too well.

The Internet’s favourite theory for the discontinuation, is that Intel didn’t really support it’s ecosystem.

The Pi and Arduino, the two most popular SBC families, can boast colossal communities and close collaboration with the hardware makers.
