Active Cooling System for the Intel® Joule™ Compute Module

March 8, 2017 | Celine Marie Barrozo

Last August 2016, Intel® announced the Intel® Joule™ compute module. Since then, our engineering team has been hard at work to provide expansion boards that allow innovators, makers, and designers to build their products using the power and capabilities of the Intel® Joule™ compute module.

This last few months, we’ve received a lot of requests from customers not just for our six expansion boards, but also for accessories that they need or want with it. One of the most demanded accessory is a heat sink that would cool down the Intel® Joule™ compute module while it’s hard at work. Hence, Gumstix is pleased to announce and offer our Active Cooling System for the Intel® Joule™ compute module!
