E2 emulator [RTE0T00020KCE00000R]

The new E2 emulator is an advanced on-chip debugging emulator and flash programmer developed based on a concept of  "improvement of development efficiency". The download speed is up to twice as fast as the E1 emulator. Moreover, using combinations with the upcoming release solutions will contribute to reduction in development time.



The RX family can now be debugged with the E2 emulator as well as the RL78 family, and a new “current consumption tuning solution” is also now available. Learn More >>
For the RH850 Family system, a new  "CAN communication time measurement solution" is now available. This solution enables the reduction of debugging times to identify problems. Learn More >>

  • High-speed download up to twice as fast as E1
    The download speed is up to twice as fast as the E1 emulator. This substantially reduces waiting time for downloading the control programs to one-half at a maximum.


  • CAN Communication Time Measurement Solution (For RH850 family)
    The debugging time to identify problems with CAN communications is reduced.

    Available with CS+ V6.00.00 and later versions.
    Application note >>



    [For RX family (only for RX100 or RX200 series)]
    Available with CS+ V6.01.00 and later versions or e² studio V6.2.0 and later versions.
    *Application note is scheduled to be released.

  • Hot plug-in function available without an optional adapter
    Although the E1 emulator required an optional hot plug adapter sold separately to use the hot plug-in function, the E2 emulator does not need it.


  • Board interface compatible with that of E1
    - The E2 emulator can be connected to the user system that was designed for the E1 emulator because the pin arrangement to be connected to the user system has compatibility with the E1 emulator.
    - The optional products for E1 emulator are available. Click here for the details.



Note that some functions shown here may not be supported under the IDE you use. Performance property and Connection system also vary depending on the MCU type.

Configuração do sistema


1:To use the E2 emulator with boards designed for the E1, use the E2’s accompanying conversion adaptor.


Optional Products

Following devices are optionally provided to facilitate the use of the E2 emulators.
Please make sure to choose the devices that match the type of your emulators and MCUs.



  • Conversion Adapter : Converts the number and height of the pins in the connector for the connection with the emulator.
  • Isolator : Enables debugging in an environment where there is a difference in potential between the user system GND and the host PC GND.
  • Low voltage OCD Board : Enables you to debug the target MCU, even if the adapter voltage is not high enough to reprogram internal Flash ROM. This product is used between the emulator and a user's system, and is united by the in-circuit connection with the user's system.
  • Debug MCU Board : Enables the incircuit connection of the emulator with the user's system. This board allows you to use enhanced debugging functions. The applicable debugging function varies depending on the MCU type.


Note: Please read references to "E1 emulator" in the manuals for optional products as also meaning "E2 emulator".
