The Renesas Starter Kit for H8S/2456R is intended as a user-friendly introductory and evaluation tool for the H8S/2456R microcontroller. The board also provides a useful platform for evaluating the Renesas suite of development tools for coding and debugging, using High-performance Embedded Workshop as well as programming the device using E10A emulator. The Renesas Starter Kit for H8S/2456R may be connected to the host PC using a simple RS232 serial connection or via the included USB E10A on chip debugging interface.

The purpose of the board is to enable the user to evaluate the capabilities of the device and its peripherals by giving the user a simple platform on which code can be run only minutes from opening box. It can also prove an invaluable tool in development by providing a useful test platform for code already debugged using one of our more powerful emulation tools.
