Do you know the following?

The RL78/G14 Fast Prototyping Board and Wi-Fi-Pmod-Expansion-Board got AWS device qualification of FreeRTOS and it will be the first RL78 16-bit microcontroller (MCU) to be listed in the AWS Partner Device Catalog.

As a result, the 16-bit MCU "RL78/G14", which contributes to the realization of the lowest power and low cost system among Renesas Electronics MCUs, can be connected to AWS by using FreeRTOS. And with a low-end MCU like the RL78, you can safely and easily connect IoT endpoint devices to the cloud.

In addition, the RL78/G14 Fast Prototyping Board and Wi-Fi-Pmod-Expansion-Board are sold at affordable prices. We have also prepared application notes such as "RL78/G14 Group Visualization of Sensor Information on Amazon Web Services using RL78/G14 Fast Prototyping Board and FreeRTOS", so you can feel free to try connecting to AWS.

Recommended for those who want to connect IoT endpoint devices and the cloud with low-power, low-cost systems and those who want to use AWS services.

In the future, the RL78/G23 (new product) evaluation board is also scheduled to receive FreeRTOS qualification and Renesas will contribute to the IoT of our customers, so please look forward to it.
