For development work, a power supply adapter and optional products such as probe or socket compatible with the target device, all sold separately, are required. Refer to the system configuration example below for details.
System Configuration Example
Optional Products (Sold Separately)
- Emulation Probe (Required)
- Exchange Adapter (Required)
- Space Adapter
- YQ Connector (Required)
- Target Connector (Required)
- Mount Adapter
- Check pin adapter QB-144-CA-01
* Usable in common with RL78, 78K0R, 78K0, 78K0S, V850.
The pin header cover corresponded to the pin arrangement of the MCU is required. You can get the pin header cover package from the following package list. Please print the package and cut out the pin header cover for using.
