C-Based Integrated Development Environment (IDE)

For performing firmware development, Renesas provides a C-based integrated development environment which closely cooperates and integrates with DRP.

Hardware Design Environment for the Integration Programmer

DRP C-Based Integrated Development Environment

DRP Firmware Development

The firmware development for the DRP can proceed by dividing it into two steps.

STP Engine Firmware Development

Step 1 - Algorithm Development

Proceed with the development using the C language development environment (compiler, debugger).

Step 2 - STP Engine Firmware Development

The DRP tool directly outputs the firmware for DRP from the C language (ANSI-C conformity) description that is developed in Step 1.

The DRP tool displays the characteristics of the output firmware associated with the source code of the C language.

The designer can proceed with algorithmic optimization using this information.
