Renesas Starter Kit for RL78/L1C

The Renesas Starter Kit for RL78/L1C is intended as a user-friendly introductory and evaluation tool for the RL78/L1C microcontroller.

  

Features

 The board also provides a useful platform for evaluating the Renesas suite of development tools for coding and debugging, using CubeSuite+ as well as programming the device using E1 emulator and/or Renesas Flash Programmer.

The Renesas Starter Kit for RL78/L1C may be connected to the host PC using the included USB E1 on chip debugging interface.

 

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.

 

* In order to make a product installer active, this product needs the Internet environment.

 

* CubeSuite+ is not generally promoted to the U.S. and European customers. Customers in the U.S. and Europe who are interested in CubeSuite+ are requested to contact our regional marketing departments for details.

 

LCD display limitation of LCD Application Board V2 in LIN slave mode

The Timer Array Unit 0 is used at the time of reception operation in LIN slave mode. Therefore, microcontroller's pin P23/TI07/TO07/SEG35 cannot be used as LCD segment output.
Consequently, there is a segment which cannot be displayed in part by LCD Application Board V2.

 

Limitation segment: "Volts" symbol
6E, 6F and 6G of 14-segment symbol
