Intel® Quark™ SE Microcontroller

Formerly Atlas Peak

The Intel® Quark™ SE microcontroller brings intelligent power to the edge by combining a microcontroller with an onboard sensor subsystem to manage power consumption through programmable wake cues. Intel® Quark™ SE microcontroller also features pattern matching technology engine that allows it to learn and differentiate. The result is always-sensing intelligence, bringing real time response down to the next generation of intelligent devices. 

  • Pattern matching technology: This allows the microcontroller to learn through pattern recognition and differentiate appropriate response events. Having decision-making ability at the edge can provide a more real-time response.
  • Internal sensor hub: Includes an internal sensor hub which manages multiple sensors, allowing it to support more peripherals. It also allows the main CPU to sleep, until the sensor controller wakes it up based on programmable cues, resulting in very low energy consumption. 
  • 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 in end-to-end Internet of Things architectures. More can be handled at the device level, reducing the need for larger gateways. 
  • 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. This maximizes investment of time and money by reusing software to scale up or down to any Intel® processor without additional costs
