Step 3. 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 D2000 board is still connected
  • Extract the contents of the archive to a directory with write access
  • Run installation “as a current user”

    tar -xvf l_cembd_mv_XXX

Note - the default installation directory is:

  • For sudo/root: /opt/intel/issm_2016.1.0XX
  • For current user: ~/intel/issm_2016.1.0XX

C. Install the OCD driver to enable serial output

Install the provided udev rules to allow access to the microcontroller using OpenOCD.  The following paths are the default used by the installer:

Sudo/root installation:

Installation as current user:

Note: if you changed the installation path, you’ll need to update the paths accordingly

D. Set user permissions for serial port usage

To reliably access serial devices, it is best to add your user to the `dialout` Linux* group. Alternatively, you can install and run the development environment as admin or sudo. The following will work on most Linux* distributions:

sudo usermod -aG dialout <your-user>

E. Launch the development environment and follow the Getting Started instructions on the welcome page:

  • Launch the IDE in the installation directory: iss_mcu_ide_eclipse-launcher
  • Intel® System Studio for Microcontrollers will then launch. Follow the instructions from there to get the blinking light sample application working.

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!
