The Renesas Wi-Fi Cloud Connectivity kit for the RX111 (YWIRELESS-RX111) provides a useful platform for developing IoT applications on the RX111 32-bit microcontroller. The purpose of the board is to enable the user to easily evaluate the capabilities of the device and its peripherals by providing a simple platform to get an IoT demo up and running quickly. By leveraging the GT202 Wi-Fi Module using Qualcomm’s QCA4002 dual-band 802.11a/b/g/n capabilities, the RX111 Wi-Fi Cloud Connectivity kit is ideal for node and sensor-based IoT solutions requiring Wi-Fi, with a pre-programmed Smart Garage Door IoT demo and easy set-up and configuration with Micrium’s Spectrum's pre-integrated portfolio of embedded software and protocol stacks designed to facilitate development of IoT applications, µC/Probe graphics visualization tool and Medium One’s Cloud with Data Intelligence.
What's in the Kit:
- RX111 32-bit MCU board with 4 PMOD connectors and JTAG for debug
- Longsys GT202 PMOD Wi-Fi module using Qualcomm QCA4002 low energy Wi-Fi single-band 802.11a/b/g/n SoC
- USB Cable
- Quick Start Guide
- Pre-programmed with Micriµm’s Spectrum RTOS kernel and components, and the company's “Smart Home end-to-end IoT demo”
- Pre-configured for Medium One’s IoT Cloud with Data Intelligence platform
Smart Garage Door IoT Demo
The Smart Garage Door IoT demo is a pre-configured platform designed to show developers how to quickly and easily integrate their embedded devices with cloud-based enterprise solutions allowing them to benefit from the power of the cloud while meeting real-time needs.
The Smart Garage Door IoT demo emulates the ability of a user to remotely monitor and control the state of a garage door. The demo also simulates an auto-close feature where if no activity is detected after two minutes with the door open, a Medium One workflow will command the garage door to close. Finally, a service event is simulated in the garage door causing Medium One to email a diagnostic message to a predefined user.
Micriµm µC Probe
Micrium’s µC/Probe graphically visualizes the internals of any embedded system effortlessly, with just a few mouse clicks.
Micrium’s µC/Probe is a Windows application that allows you to read and write the memory of any embedded target processor during run-time, and map those values to a set of virtual controls and indicators placed on a graphical dashboard. Absolutely no programming is required—simply drag and drop the graphic components into place, and watch them go. You can also use μC/Probe to extend the capabilities of your debugging software by running both at the same time. μC/Probe allows you to have instant control over your global variables in a real-time and non-intrusive way.
