Product Overview

The Renesas Starter Kit for RL78 is intended as a user-friendly introductory and evaluation tool for the RL78/G12 - microcontroller. The board also provides a useful platform for evaluating the Renesas suite of development tools for coding and Flashing , using High-performance Embedded Workshop as well as programming the device using Flash Development Toolkit.

The Renesas Starter Kit for may be connected to the host PC using a simple RS232 serial connection (not normally fitted) or via the included USB interface CP2102 USB to uart converter Chip Included on the Board .

The purpose of the board is to enable the user to evaluate the capabilities of the device and its peripherals by giving the user a simple platform on which code can be run only minutes from opening box. It can also prove an invaluable tool in development by providing a useful test platform for code already debugged using one of our more powerful emulation tools.
