The RC21008A Evaluation Board (EVB) is designed to support users evaluating the RC21008A using clock generation in synthesizer mode for PCIe Gen 1-6 compliance. When the EVB is connected via USB to the user’s computer running Renesas Integrated Circuit Toolbox (RICBox™) Software, the RC21008 can be configured in various frequencies with best-in-class performance. The RC21008 offers various features with total 8 pairs of differential outputs. Each pair of output can be programmed to LVCMOS style, LVDS style, and LP-HCSL style outputs. There are 5 general purpose input/output (GPIOs) and 4 general purpose input (GPIs) to support output enables, power down, configuration selection, and status outputs. Voltage levels for VDDX, VDDR, VDDA, VDDD, VDDO1, VDDO2, VDDO3, VDDO4, VDDO5, and VDDO6 can be set by jumper. The EVB kit also has a socket to load a configuration from EEPROM.

|Renesas IC Toolbox (RICBox)
The Renesas IC Toolbox (RICBox) software platform enables customers to configure Renesas devices on evaluation kits when attached to the computer running the software.
Learn more about how to configure the VersaClock®7 evaluation board using the supporting RICBox software. VersaClock®7 devices achieve any frequency-in, any frequency-out for high speed SerDes used in switches routers, accelerator cards, and server applications.
Renesas' Lab on the Cloud is an online environment where Renesas solutions, including popular evaluation boards, winning combinations and software, are hosted in a remote lab that customers access and test online.
This is an automated system to configure and evaluate the phase noise performance of the VersaClock® 7 family and generate preliminary addendum and orderable part number.
