Fast Prototyping Board

Built-in Emulator Circuit and High Expandability for Fast Prototyping

The Fast Prototyping Board (FPB) comes equipped with an RL78 microcontroller and is an evaluation board specialized for prototype development for a variety of applications. It has a built-in emulator circuit that is equivalent to an E2 emulator Lite so you can write/debug programs without additional tools. In addition, with interfaces such as Arduino and Pmod™ included and through-hole access to all pins of the microcontroller, it has high expandability.
