Renesas RPBRX62N promotional board
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.
