Introducing the Intel® System Studio 2016 for Microcontrollers Update 1

Intel® System Studio 2016 for Microcontrollers is an Eclipse*-integrated tool set for developing, optimizing, and debugging systems and applications for the Intel® Quark™ microcontroller D2000 and Intel® Quark™ SE microcontroller C1000 targets.

The package integrates the Intel® Quark™ Microcontroller Software Interface Board Support Package (Intel® QMSI BSP) and all tools to cross-compile, flash, and debug on Linux* and Windows* host platforms.

In addition, this package provides support of Zephyr* RTOS, a small-footprint kernel designed for use on resource-constrained systems. As part of Intel® System Studio 2016 for Microcontrollers, along with bare-metal, the option is given for users to create Zephyr-based projects, which will run on their Intel® Quark ™ microcontroller platforms.

The tool set consists of the following components:

  • GCC* Version 5.2.1 or later for Intel® architecture

    • Linker
    • Assembler
    • C Run-time Libraries
  • GCC* Version 4.8.5 for ARC* GNU* Toolchain
    • Linker
    • Assembler
    • C Run-time Libraries
  • Intel® Compiler for Intel® Quark™ Microcontrollers - 2016.0
  • GNU* GDB 7.9
  • Intel® Integrated Performance Primitives for Microcontrollers library 1.1
  • Floating Point Emulation library
  • Intel-optimized LIBM library
  • TinyCrypt Library 0.2.0
  • Intel-enhanced GDB* Debugger
  • OpenOCD* JTAG Debugger
  • Sample Applications
  • Board Support Package (BSP) for the Intel® Quark™ Microcontroller Software Interface (Intel® QMSI) 1.0 and 1.1
  • Zephyr* project RTOS 1.4.1
  • Fully integrated Eclipse* Mars 4.5 IDE
  • Python™ 2.7.10
  • WinUSB* driver for Intel® Quark™ microcontrollers
  • Java* Runtime Environment 1.8

The suite is supported on the following host operating systems:

  • Windows* 7, 8.1, 10 - all 64bit
  • Linux* (Ubuntu* 14.04 LTS, Fedora* 21 - all 64bit)
