DISCONTINUED SOFTWARE NOTICE - This software / tool has been discontinued.
Software support will continue in most cases. Please contact Renesas support with any questions.

The E1 emulator is an on-chip debugging emulator and flash programmer which supports the major Renesas MCUs. This economical development tool provides basic debugging functionality. Available optional products, such as the hot-plug-in adaptor, allow you to extend debugging functionality or adjust connections.

Item Description
For RX or RL78 Family MCU Users E2 emulator or E2 emulator Lite
For RH850 Family MCU Users E2 emulator

Note:

  1. No successors to E1 for V850、78K0R、78K0 or R8C* Family MCU Users.
    *E8a emulator supports R8C/3x or R8C/Lx Series MCU.

Features

  • Affordable yet powerful debugging device that can meet the actual development needs.
    Learn more (On-chip Debuggers Performance Property) >>
  • Enhanced functions for faster debugging
    In addition to basic debugging functions, the E1 supports execution time measurement and hot plug-in functionality (dependent on the MCU) that allows connection to the user system while the program is running.
  • Also functions as an on-board programmer.
    Can be used as an on-board programming tool after the debugging, enabling smooth evaluation of the MCU.
  • Optimally suited for evaluating analogue functions such as A/D and D/A properties.
    Electrical characteristics are the same as those of the actual MCU, since the actual MCU is used for debugging.
  • Serial, JTAG and LPD connections are supported.
    For the communication system, serial, JTAG or LPD connection can be selected as required by the type of the target MCU.
  • Simple connection
    Connection requires only a connector mounted on the user system, thus significantly reducing the possibility of loose connection.
  • Environmentally friendly material
    The casing is made of plant-derived polylactide (PLA).
