Renesas SDK1725 Development Platform Now Available with CANopen Development Tools

20 APRIL 2009

Renesas Technology Europe and MSC Vertriebs GmbH announced the launch of a SDK1725 starter kit specifically for the development of dual CAN applications. Comprising the CANopen stack and CANopen development tools from port GmbH, and Renesas’ H8SX/1725F-based microcontroller starter kit the combination is ideal for developing a variety of safety critical applications. CANopen is a leading protocol for embedded distributed designs and is in use across many application sectors such as medical, automation, sensor, measurement, and motion control. The H8SX/1725F CANopen Library provides all the services necessary to provide CANopen communications that are compliant with the CiA 301 V 4.2 communication profile. It facilitates the fast and easy development of master and slave devices, and is able to serve one or two of the CAN Controllers within the H8SX/1725F microcontroller. Written completely in ANSI-C, it can be compiled with every ANSI-C compliant compiler. Each version of the CANopen Library is tested against the latest CANopen conformance tests to maintain compliance with the standard. The H8SX/1725F SDK Starter kit comes with an evaluation version of the CANopen software, Renesas’ E10A debugger, Renesas C compiler (trial) and High-performance Embedded Workshop.
