Get Started

Follow these steps to launch your development environment and begin working with your Intel® Quark™ Microcontroller Developer Kit D2000.

Intel® Quark™ Microcontroller Software Interface (Intel® QMSI) and Intel® System Studio for Microcontrollers information

Intel® Quark™ Microcontroller Software Interface (Intel® QMSI) is an open-source hardware abstraction layer for Intel® Quark™ microcontroller products. It provides drivers, sample applications and gives access to internal peripherals via a consistent API for both bare-metal and Zephyr Project™ applications.

Intel® System Studio for Microcontrollers is an Eclipse*-integrated software development environment designed specifically to enable development on Intel® Quark™ microcontroller-based developer boards.

Step 1. Prepare Your Hardware

A. Make sure you have everything you need

Step 2. Install the Development Environment

A. Download Intel® System Studio for Microcontrollers development environment

Register and Download

B. Install Intel® System Studio for Microcontrollers

Make sure that your developer board is still connected for your PC and then run the .exe file you downloaded.

C. Launch Intel® System Studio for Microcontrollers

Follow the Getting Started instructions on the welcome page as shown below:

Intel® System Studios for Microcontrollers FAQs

What is Intel® System Studios for Microcontrollers?

*Integrated software suite built exclusively for developing, optimizing, and debugging applications on the Intel® Quark™ microcontroller D2000 and Intel® Quark™ SE microcontroller.

Why do I need to register?

There are international regulations that require Intel to register users who download an application of this nature. Registering will also allow Intel to keep you up to date on the latest releases.

I've downloaded Intel® System Studios for Microcontrollers, now what?

Once you have download the application, run the install wizard, and then launch the application (i.e. from the Start Menu on Windows*). On the welcome page you’ll find a tutorial to help you get started with the LED_Blink light sample code. You can also try the Accelerometer Tutorial or create your own programs.
