Renesas RL78 Microcontroller Development Tools.

Renesas RL78 Microcontroller Development Tools.

Frontline Electronics has introduced a range of Study and Development Hardware suitable for the Renesas RL78, 16-Bit Microcontrollers. These tools are being used wildly in the Indian market in the last few years and became very popular among the microcontroller users.

RL78 Evaluation Board.

The Evaluation board has the following features.
• RL78/G14 operating at 32Mhz.
• Four digits of Multiplexed Seven Segment LED Displays.
• LCD module with 2 line X 16 characters.
• Keyboard with 4X4 matrix.
• 4 Point LEDs interfaced to timer output pins.
• I2C device, RTC.
• Four Push Button switches.
• 4 numbers of Toggle switches.
• One Analog variable voltage source.
• Square waveform generator to study timers of Microcontroller.
• Pulse generator to study timers of Microcontroller.
• RS 232 Level shifter.
• Temperature Sensor LM35.
• Facility to measure Board Temperature and Current.
• Board has facility to connect EZ Emulator.

 

RL78 Based Embedded Application Development System.

RL78 EADS contains a baseboard and a Microcontroller Top Board. The Microcontroller Top Board comes as a small circular PCB with the microcontroller soldered along with its clock driving circuits and programming facility. You can plug the Microcontroller Top Board on the Baseboard to evaluate that particular RL78/G14 device.

The Baseboard carries various interfacing options like:

• Four digits of Multiplexed Seven Segment LED Displays.
• LCD module with 2 line X 16 characters.
• Keyboard with 4X4 matrix.
• 8 Point LEDs.
• I2C devices, RTC and EEPROM.
• Four Push Button switches.
• 4 numbers of Toggle switches.
• Two Analog variable voltage sources.
• Square wave form generator to study timers of Microcontroller.
• Pulse generator to study timers of Microcontroller.
• RS 232 Level shifter.
• Board has facility to connect EZ Emulator.

The hardware is supported with plenty of software examples that use these peripherals in all possible options.
In short, this RL78 EADS is designed to impart desired technical knowledge about Renesas’s 16 bit architecture and its real time applications.

 

RL78/G14 based Protoboard.

The ProtoBoard comes with few interfacing options and along with a reasonable proto area.

The basic requirements like, the Clock circuit, Reset circuit, EZ Emulator Interface and the RS232 circuit are provided on board for an easy start up.

The other interfacing options available are:

Two numbers of Push Button Switches.

Two numbers of LEDs.

EZ-RECON Emulator for RL78.

EZ-RECON is an on-chip debug emulator with flash programming function.

Features:
• On-chip debugging
Can debug with the target microcontroller connected to the target system.

• Flash memory programming
Can write programs to the on-chip flash memory of the microcontrollers.

• USB connection
Can be connected to the host machine via USB interface 2.0.

• Supports Variety of devices

EZ-RECON supports a wide variety of Renesas Electronics 8- bit to 32-bit on-chip flash memory microcontrollers.
