Intel Curie wearable module

ntel today disclosed plans for the Intel® Curie™ module, a tiny hardware product based on the company’s first purpose-built SoC for wearable devices: the Intel® Quark™ SE SoC. The Intel Curie module is a complete low–power solution for the wearable space with compute, motion sensor, Bluetooth Low Energy and battery charging capabilities. The module runs on open source RTOS.

The Intel Curie module is a highly integrated hardware module that can power a solution the size of a button and will include a Bluetooth Low Energy radio and motion sensors.

The combination of integrated components in the module makes it a first-of-its-kind platform from Intel, in size and flexibility, enabling customers to create smaller devices with long battery life.

The Intel Curie module can enable efficient and intelligent wearable solutions for a broad range of form factors – from rings, bags, bracelets, pendants, fitness trackers to even buttons.

The Intel Curie Module includes:

  • Low-power, 32-bit Intel® Quark™ microcontroller
  • 384kB flash memory, 80kB SRAM
  • Low-power, integrated DSP sensor hub with proprietary pattern matching accelerator
  • Bluetooth Low Energy
  • 6-axis combo sensor with accelerometer and gyroscope
  • Battery charging circuitry (PMIC)

“Last year, we partnered with leading technology, fashion and lifestyle brands to help build a robust wearable ecosystem,” said Mike Bell, vice president and general manager of Intel’s New Devices Group. “With the Intel Curie module, Intel will continue to push the envelope of what’s possible and enable companies to quickly and effectively build low-power wearables in various form factors.”

  1. I notice that none of the Intel material mentions GPIO/SPI/I2C or anything like that. So how do we expect the Curie to interact with anything?
