The GR-CITRUS tiny board enables easier programming with the Ruby language. You can create Ruby programs with Visual Studio Code. See VSCode Extension "Rubic". You can also develop with Rubic on the chrome app.
You can program similar to Arduino Sketch using the Renesas web compiler and IDE for GR.
By connecting with the WA-MIKAN board that has an ESP8266 module for Wi-Fi, you can prototype a system using Wi-Fi and a Micro SD card.

USB Mass Storage Firmware
Download GR-CITRUS' USB mass storage firmware. To write the firmware, it's necessary to use Renesas Flash Programmer and close the MD jumper on the GR-CITRUS board to change to a programming mode with a USB direct connection.
At Version b, the volume label becomes "GR-CITRUS_b". Version b expands the bin write area from 528KB to 960KB. Depending on the OS of the PC, hidden files may be written to the storage, and the actual writing area may be reduced.
