Renesas Electronics Europe announced the availability of the Renesas Starter Kit for the RZ/A1 family of embedded processors. The RSK is the ideal starting point for design and creation of Human Machine Interface (HMI) applications and features everything needed for the development process. It has been specifically designed to reduce time to market and assist Renesas customers in creating rich HMI systems in the shortest time possible.
In 2013, Renesas launched the RZ/A1 device family featuring the world’s largest on chip SRAM of 10MB. It has been specially designed to meet the requirements of the graphical user interface developer, as it is able to drive screens up to XGA size without the need for external RAM. It is set to revolutionise the market, filling the gap in the market between the more traditional microcontroller and microprocessor solutions.
The Renesas Starter Kit, which is launched today, features a development board with the device itself as well as connectors for all the major supported communications peripherals on the device. These include CAN, Ethernet, camera interface, audio interface, SD card, USB 2.0 host and USB 2.0 function.
