Intel® System Studio for Microcontrollers FAQs
What is Intel® System Studio for Microcontrollers?
It is an integrated software suite built exclusively for developing, optimizing, and debugging applications on the Intel® Quark™ microcontroller D2000 and Intel® Quark™ SE microcontroller C1000.
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 Studio 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.
