In recent years, there has been a trend to include additional value and simplify the development of wireless solutions. Not only it has to be eye-catching but also making customer’s development easier.

The real challenge is the evaluation of the actual device. For wireless evaluation, the  actual operating environment is a key factor, and on-site measurement and  real time analysis of the solution is required. 

Therefore, Renesas has developed a solution in collaboration with silex to developed the "SX-23BT-EVK" wireless module  with Radio Law certification   that  allows development of Renesas RX23W BT5.0 MCU from device level to actual wireless evaluation board.  This solution enables  code development till  wireless evaluation in a single environment using the Renesas integrated development environment - "e2studio".

To use “RX23W”, please prepare the followings:

  • Wireless evaluation board "SX-23BT-EVK"
  • E2 emulator Lite
  • Renesas Integrated development environment "e2studio" (free evaluation ver. is downloadable from the web page.) 

This enable each evaluation to become easy.

[Wireless evaluation] 

With the following 3 steps, actual wireless evaluation can be done in the same development  environment.

  1. Build a project environment for the sample code.
  2. Refer to Quick Start-Up Guide provided by silex.
  3. Integrate the wireless unit and build an environment capable of wireless transmission.

[Total power evaluation]

As most of the pins are on the outer side of the wireless evaluation board, you can  connect your preferred components and evaluate both wireless and total power.

Thus, by adding  a board that can be built easily for evaluation of wireless and total power to the development environment, customers can easily evaluate in their own operating environment.
This solution truly demonstrated our partner’s strength in  providing a “reliable wireless” solution as well as Renesas development environment capability.

The solution introduce this time enables wireless evaluation and total power in the actual operating environment using Renesas integrated development environment (IDE). The result of the wireless evaluation can be easily capture even at the very early stage of the development. Feel free to try this!
