RX72N Envision Kit

The second phase of the popular Envision Kit for RX microcontroller evaluation and HMI development is now available.

Overview

This kit is equipped with the RX72N, the flagship of the 32-bit microcontroller RX Family. In addition to creating a GUI using an LCD, you can develop HMI features such as voice input and output, and develop IoT devices using Wi-Fi/BLE and Ethernet, all with one kit.

With the on-board pre-installed demo and emulator circuit, you can review the features and start MCU development immediately.

Features

  • Equipped with a 32-bit RX72N microcontroller (maximum operating frequency: 240 MHz, code flash memory: 4MB, internal RAM: 1MB)
  • Includes a WQVGA LCD with a capacitive touch panel allowing GUI development using an LCD controller and a 2D drawing engine
  • Provides a D2Audio audio IC with a stereo MEMS microphone to support voice input and output
  • Supports communications such as Wi-Fi/BLE and Ethernet
  • Extended storage available using Macronix's 32Mbit serial flash with USB and microSD slots
  • Includes a variety of Renesas analog devices, such as light sensors, regulators, clock generators, hot-swap power management ICs and LCD backlight drivers
  • Equipped with an onboard E2 Lite emulator
  • The pre-installed demo includes source code, schematics, BOM, and more downloadable from this website
  • RX72N users can use the emWin GUI software package provided by Segger at no cost.
  • Download the free Eclipse-based development environment here

Two types of demo software using RX72N features are pre-installed

  • Standard demo:
    The standard included demo is a sports game called Eyecatcher, highlighting the type of display that can be developed using the free emWin GUI tool and RX72N LCD display functions.
  • Benchmark demo:
    A firmware update function is installed, and you can add features such as storage, cryptographic throughput, and AWS integration by updating to the latest firmware.

Demo Firmware

The pre-installed firmware update feature allows updates by writing this firmware to a microSD card.
