For Intel® Quark™ Microcontrollers

America's Greatest Makers Crowned!

The first TV reality show ever created by a technology company—Intel—wrapped up on TBS with Intel CEO Brian Krzanich presenting Team Grush with a check for a cool $1 million for its smart toothbrush designed to combat dental disease in kids. The winning team used Intel® System Studio for Microcontrollers on their way to the win (see press release). If you missed any episodes, you can catch them here.

Development Environment for Intel® Quark™ Microcontroller Software Developers

Intel® System Studio for Microcontrollers, an Eclipse*-integrated software suite, is designed specifically to empower Intel® Quark™ microcontroller developers to create fast, intelligent things.

The Internet of Things (IoT) is the big growth wave in tech—from smart cities, homes, and classrooms to energy management, wearable devices, and much more. The Intel® Quark™ microcontroller family extends intelligent computing to a new spectrum of devices requiring low power consumption for sensor input and data actuation applications.

What it Does

  • Speeds time to market with an Eclipse*-integrated development environment for systems based on Intel Quark microcontrollers.
  • Optimizes source code for power and system resource efficiency for IoT classes of small sensors and devices with proven compilers and libraries.
  • Strengthens system reliability by quickly isolating complex source code issues with a system and application debugger.

What's New!

  • Support for Arrow Panther*, Arduino/Genuino 101*, and tinyTILE* boards.
  • Energy analysis to measure system or software behaviors that influence the power consumption of the Intel® Quark™ microcontrollers.
  • More functions in Intel® Integrated Performance Primitives for Microcontrollers to accelerate digital signal processing.
  • Sensor library (MRAA I/O Communication Layer and UPM Sensor and Actuator Library) to quickly add commonly used sensors and actuators to your project.
  • Support for the latest Zephyr* RTOS version 1.7 and Intel® Quark™ Microcontroller Software Interface (Intel® QMSI) 1.4.
  • IDE integrated firmware manager to conveniently update to new Intel® QMSI and Zephyr* RTOS releases independent of suite updates.
  • Improved user interface design with workflow optimizations.
