Integrated Development Environment Based on Eclipse

Development Environment

e2 studio: Integrated Development Environment Based on Eclipse

e2 studio is an integrated development environment based on the Eclipse open source integrated development environment and CDT plug-ins supporting development in C/C++. The version of e2 studio that is compatible with the RZ/T series provides support for a code generation plug-in.

C/C++ perspective: code generation plug-in

A code generation plug-in is available that enables the user to generate device driver programs for peripheral functions of Renesas microcontrollers (timers, UART, A/D converter, etc.) by entering settings in a graphical user interface. It is possible to specify the processing of multiplexed pins in a pin table and view a pin assignment diagram to confirm the settings.
