The Renesas RPBRX62N is a promotional board that exceeds the normal features of a  demo board and comes close to a rapid prototyping board.

The board features a RX62N chip, a Segger J-Link JTAG debugger and a HEW IDE with a 60 days C Compiler license. Full option!!!

Renesas RPBRX62N Hardware

The pin  header comes unsoldered and the plating quality is excellent. See the attached pictures.

The actual configuration leaves 4 (SCI) UARTs available on the header.

Other on-board features are a USB port, a joystick , a potentiometer, some switches, leds and the Ethernet port.

A SMSC LAN8700I –  a ±15kV ESD Protected MII/RMII 10/100 Ethernet Transceiver with HP Auto-MDIX Support and flexPWR – makes the Ethernet interface.

Software and documentation:

The preloaded demo software features a web server built on uIP and shows  some basic functions like commanding the leds and a VNC server that nicely substitutes a full display. The source code of the preloaded demo program is in the tutorial project/HEW.

Both demo webservers (Renesas and Segger version) are using 192.168.1.10 as default IP Address, but on the CD  is included a IP identifier (IP Address Display Tool) software named UsbViewer.

Segger’s website provides a full .hws demo project and documentation. The direct link is here.

You can download also a  EmbOS trial version for RX here.

The documentation is complete. The “RX62N Group, RX621 Group
User’s Manual: Hardware” (filename r01uh0033ej_rx62n.pdf) has 2014 pages and >50MB.

The availability and performance of LTE components are becoming a critical issues as carriers move ahead with LTE deployments. Highly integrated devices using the latest silicon technology are transforming this market. At this critical time we take a look at the latest solutions involving LTE for cellular base stations as well as the emerging HetNet (heterogeneous networks) technology to provide the fully integrated coverage and bandwidth that are needed in next-generation mobile infrastructure equipment.
