Overview

Description

The CK-RX65N cloud kit enables users to securely connect to the cloud and explore the features of the Renesas RXv2 core based RX65N MCU Group and cloud services.

With multiple network connectivity options, the kit provides a seamless cloud connectivity experience to most of the global cloud service providers. The kit is available with two options for wireless connectivity – Wi-Fi connectivity using the DA16600 Wi-Fi-BLE combo module, and cellular connectivity with the RYZ014A LTE CAT-M1 module. Also, both kits are equipped with an onboard ethernet PHY for ethernet connectivity.

The kit has complete software stack support using FreeRTOS, Azure RTOS, other middleware stacks, and drivers, thereby making it an ideal platform for efficiently developing cloud solutions and greatly reducing the time-to-market.
