Intel® Movidius™ Neural Compute Stick Discontinuation Notice

Intel is discontinuing the Intel® Movidius™ Neural Compute Stick. The Intel® Movidius™ Neural Compute Stick has been replaced with the Intel® Neural Compute Stick 2 (Intel® NCS 2). Developers looking to prototype or continue to productize their offerings can review guidance for transitioning to other platforms from the Intel® Movidius™ Neural Compute Stick.

  • The last order date for the Intel® Movidius™ Neural Compute Stick is October 30th, 2019.
  • Technical support for the Intel® Movidius™ Neural Compute Stick will continue to be available until April 30th, 2021.
  • Warranty support for the Intel® Movidius™ Neural Compute Stick will continue to be available until April 30th, 2022.

There are no further software updates planned for the Intel® Movidius™ Neural Compute SDK.

The Intel® Distribution of OpenVINO™ Toolkit supports both the Intel® Movidius™ Neural Compute Stick and the Intel® Neural Compute Stick 2. Intel® Neural Compute Stick developers can review guidance for transitioning from the Intel® Movidius™ Neural Compute SDK to Intel® Distribution of OpenVINO™ toolkit.

Additional information can be found on the Product Change Notification (PCN116844) posted in the Intel® Quality Document Management System (Intel® QDMS).
