Intel® System Studio 2016 for Microcontrollers is an integrated tool suite for developing, optimizing, and debugging systems and firmware for the Intel® Quark™ microcontroller D2000 and Intel® Quark™ SE microcontroller development boards, which offers a microcontroller core to enable applications from device control to edge sensing IoT solutions.

Objective of this document

This document explains how to communicate with MATLAB* over the UART of the Intel® Quark™ microcontroller D2000. Most IoT applications would collect sensory data and send it to the back-end analytic server, but it is important to analyze the actual sensor data before sending it to the server. During the development phase, a developer would check the reliability of data acquisition from the sensor on the serial terminal such as Putty or in Excel*, when the user can import the data into spreadsheet. One popular tool for data analysis in visual figures is  MATLAB. This document shows how configure the Intel® Quark™ microcontroller D2000 UART to allow MATLAB to collect sensor data and plot them in visual axes.
