Intel® Quark™ Microcontroller D2000

Formerly Mint Valley

The Intel® Quark™ microcontroller D2000, is a low power, battery-operated, 32-bit microcontroller with a more robust instruction set than other entry-level microcontrollers. The first x86-based Intel® Quark™ microcontroller, Intel® Quark™ microcontroller D2000 also increases input/output options over other entry-level microcontrollers. Within its small footprint, the Intel® Quark™ microcontroller D2000 includes an Intel® Quark™ ultra-low-power core running at 32 MHz, with 32 KB integrated flash and 8 KB SRAM.

Integrated security features: Extends excellent Intel® security down to the device level with software- and hardware-based features to help protect your data at every end point.

Intelligence at the edge: Brings intelligence to the edge for real-world applications. It is interoperable with other Intel-based systems—simplifying integration of edge products into end-to-end Internet of Things architectures.  

Faster time to market: Simplifies design and reduces bill of materials (BOM) by minimizing external components required on the platform. The Intel® System Studio integrated development environment is included with all Intel® microcontrollers.  

Tremendous flexibility: Provides tremendous flexibility by requiring a single DC power source with an operating range of 2.0 to 3.3 volts and supporting the serial interfaces typically seen on sensors, wireless modules, flash devices, and EEPROMs.

Intel® Quark™ Microcontroller Developer Kit D2000

The Intel® Quark™ Microcontroller Developer Kit D2000 consists of a small form-factor board which contains among other things flash storage, a 6-axis compass/accelerometer with temperature sensor, an Arduino-Uno compatible shield’s interface and a booster-pack compatible shield’s interface. A USB connection enables programming and debugging (JTAG) of the development platform. The software tool chain for the development platform is provided by Intel® System Studio for microcontrollers, which is an Eclipse-based* IDE for developing, optimizing and debugging applications. Features include the GNU compiler collection (GCC), Intel® Integrated Performance Primitives for microcontrollers, the board support package for the Intel® Quark™ Microcontroller Software Interface (Intel® QMSI) and sample applications.
