RZ/N1 Solution Kit – Fast prototyping for Multi-protocol Industrial Ethernet

The RZ/N1D solution kit is an all-in-the-box package for fast evaluation and rapid prototyping of multiple industrial Ethernet protocols.

RZ/N1 is a family of scalable Arm® based industrial Ethernet switches. The performant Arm® Cortex®-A7 CPU on board, makes them an ideal choice for building Programmable Logic Controllers (PLC), industrial switches, gateways or operator terminals. Due to the unique combination of hardware and software, developers can easily exchange various industrial Ethernet protocols and focus only on developing the application software.
