Intel Joule shipments blocked in key countries, pending certification
From InfoWorld: If you can't find Intel's Joule developer boards in your country, it's because shipments have been held up.
Intel's Joule 570x and 550x are powerful computer boards that can be built as a PC, or be used to build robots, drones, or smart devices. But Intel is now seeking government certification so the boards can be cleared for shipment in those countries.
Joule shipments have currently been blocked in a number of countries, including Taiwan, Japan, and Israel, all of which have active technology markets where hobbyists design hardware.
Users that have ordered Joule boards from retailers abroad can't receive shipments in the blocked countries.
China is not listed on the page describing the blocked shipments, and Intel can ship and sell the device in Hong Kong.
Intel is currently going through the certification process in blocked countries, which may take some time. The Joule boards are on sale in countries like U.S. and Canada, where the certification process was quick.
