Intel Quark Microcontroller D2000 Development Board available for $15

Intel company based on Intel Quark Microcontroller D2000 prepared an Intel Quark Microcontroller Developer Kit D2000. 

intel quark d2000 development kit

The Intel Quark microcontroller D2000, is a low power, battery-operated, 32-bit microcontroller with a more robust instruction set than other entry-level microcontrollers. The first x86-based Intel® Quark™ microcontroller, Intel® Quark™ microcontroller D2000 also increases input/output options over other entry-level microcontrollers. Within its small footprint, the Intel® Quark™ microcontroller D2000 includes an Intel® Quark™ ultra-low-power core running at 32 MHz, with 32 KB integrated flash and 8 KB SRAM.

Quark microcontroller D2000

Features:

  • 8 KB Cache
  • Operating Voltage 2.0V – 3.3V
  • 32 MHz clock speed
  • Optimized power management—low battery power
  • 8 KB SRAM, 32 KB instruction flash, 8 KB OTP flash and 4 KB OTP data flash
  • Scalable Intel® Quark™ Microcontroller Sofware Interface
  • 2 channel DMA
  • Intel® System Studio for Microcontroller SDK

Currently, based on Intel Quark Microcontroller D2000, Intel launched the Intel Quark Microcontroller Developer Kit D2000 consists of a small form-factor development board which contains among other things flash storage, a 6-axis compass/accelerometer with temperature sensor, an Arduino-Uno compatible shield’s interface and a booster-pack compatible shield’s interface. A USB connection enables programming and debugging (JTAG) of the development platform. The software tool chain for the development platform is provided by Intel System Studio for microcontrollers, which is an Eclipse-based* IDE for developing, optimizing and debugging applications. Features include the GNU compiler collection (GCC), Intel Integrated Performance Primitives for microcontrollers, the board support package for the Intel Quark microcontroller software interface (Intel QMSI) and sample applications.
