Smart Configurator

The Smart Configurator is a utility for combining software to meet your needs. It supports the following three functions related to the embedding of Renesas drivers in your systems: importing middleware of FIT modules, generating driver code, and setting pins.



A version of the Smart Configurator (only supporting the pin-assignment function) which supports the RZ/G1C, RZ/G1E, RZ/G1N and RZ/G1H groups has been released.

Operating Environment


Note that this product is provided in different forms according to the development environment in use. The Smart Configurator for the e² studio is included as a plug-in, while that for CS+ is a stand-alone unit. For the method of using the Smart Configurator, refer to the following User Guides.


Smart Configurator User Guide: Renesas e² studio

Smart Configurator User Guide: CS+



Importing middleware (FIT modules)

This function is for importing FIT (Firmware Integration Technology) modules and modifying settings such as pin assignments. You can also use it with the driver code generator.


Details of FIT >>


Generating driver code

The Smart Configurator allows you to use its GUI to generate driver code that handles the details of the settings of peripheral modules.


[Clock settings]

You can make clock settings by selecting clock sources and making connections in the block diagrams in the [Clocks configuration] window.


[Component settings]

In the [Software component configuration] window, you can embed sample code, set peripheral functions, check for errors in settings, or modify driver channels by selecting the modules to be used.


Pin settings

The assignments of pins can be set up from a GUI, which also checks and offers solutions for cases of contention for the same pins by multiplexed functions.


[Pins Configuration window (displayed per peripheral module)]

Specifying a peripheral module in the Pins Configuration window displays the pin functions for use by the module and allows you to set their assignments to pins.


[MCU Package window]

The MCU Package window displays a symbolic view of the pins, indicating by colors which are and are not in use, and indicating pins for which multiplexed functions are in contention, and so on, so you are able to check the overall situation.


[Automatic resolution of contention between pin functions]

Where contention for pins is present, clicking on the pins brings up a list allowing you to automatically change the assignments of pins to resolve the contention.
