The RX family provides “easy, secure and safe” cloud connectivity solutions. It is possible to start development immediately, with confidence, because we have obtained device certification with the included real-time OSes (FreeRTOS, AzureRTOS) for IoT and various libraries (SSL/TLS, OTA, MQTT, TCP/IP, etc.) for IoT devices which are provided by major cloud vendors such as Amazon Web Services (AWS) and Microsoft, along with the evaluation kit and convenient development environment (e2 studio), making it ideal for IoT device development.
We support the creation of new business, helping you get to market faster with quicker innovation development by concentrating and streamlining your investment area and utilizing digital transformation (DX) through artificial intelligence (AI) and machine learning (ML) in collaboration with cloud services.

*1:Currently, only Microsoft AzureRTOS is supported
*2:Can install simultaneously with e2 studio without downloading separately.

Recommended microcontrollers

We have selected the best products for cloud connectivity from our extensive line of RX microcontrollers.
As a basis for this selection, Renesas has ported the RTOS and as a result, believe that the memory resources required are at least 96KB RAM and at least 512KB ROM (or at least 1.5MB for OTA feature implementation).
Taking into account the communications, security and OTA capabilities required for cloud connectivity, we have selected the following products:

  Part Number CPU Frequency ROM RAM Trusted
Secure IP
BGO,
Dual Bank
Driver support

Evaluation Board

You can easily try cloud communication using a board equipped with Renesas devices. You can choose based on the microcontroller, the communication method, and the peripheral functions. You can also download a variety of predefined programs for each board free of charge.
The kit is ideal for:

  1. Evaluation of Renesas devices (MCUs, analog devices, sensors)
  2. As a reference for customers when designing boards and programs
  3. As a learning application for those who are newly starting cloud communications

This is a Cloud communication evaluation kit that can connect to the cloud via Wi-Fi. It is equipped with a Wi-Fi communication module, a temperature/humidity sensor, an optical sensor, a 3-axis accelerometer, a serial communication USB board, and a USB port for debugging, and can be evaluated in a configuration that is close to IoT equipment.

In addition to cloud communication, this multifunctional evaluation kit also supports LCD and voice input. It is equipped with an LCD display, a stereo MEMS microphone, a MicroSD slot, a Wi-Fi/BLE module, a general-purpose USB port, and an RJ45 connector, and cloud communication + HMI can be evaluated with this one unit.
