Compare all Intel® Quark™ Microcontrollers ›

The first x86-based Intel® microcontroller (MCU), the Intel® Quark™ microcontroller D2000 supports a more robust instruction set and more input/output options than other entry-level microcontrollers. 

  • Low-power battery-operated 32-bit microcontroller
  • Ultra-low-power Intel® Quark™ processor core running at 32 MHz
  • 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 endpoint.

Intelligence at the edge: Entry-level MCU bringing 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 (IoT) 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 for Microcontrollers integrated developer environment (IDE) is included with all Intel® microcontrollers, allowing users to rapidly and easily develop their IoT solutions.

Tremendous flexibility: Provides 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.
