Note

  1. The version numbers of Renesas compilers which can be used with the e² studio are as follows:
    • C/C++ Compiler Package (CC-RX) for RX Family: V2.00.01 and later versions
    • C Compiler Package (CC-RL) for RL78 Family: V1.01.00 and later versions
    If you have installed CC-RX or CC-RL with the above-mentioned version numbers with the CS+ IDE, you can also use them with the e² studio, i.e. you do not need to install the version without the IDE.
  2. GNU tools that include GNU compilers can be installed by selecting them with the installer of the e² studio (Internet connection is required). Also, the GNU tools for each family can be installed free of charge by downloading them from the GNU Web site (registration is required for the e² studio which has already been installed).
  3. Using the e² studio in debugging requires building load modules in the ELF/DWARF format. Refer to the following table "Debugging tools" for the supported emulators. IAR provides plug-ins to handle projects for IAR compilers. See here for details. >>
    Contact IAR Systems K.K. for details of the IAR Embedded Workbench, compiler products, and plug-ins for Eclipse.
    IAR Systems K.K.: http://www.iar.com/
  4. Only the debugging functions of the e² studio can be used with products of the RH850 family. The e² studio can be used to debug load modules in the ELF/DWARF format which were built with the IAR Embedded Workbench from IAR Systems or the MULTI IDE from Green Hills Software.
  5. Use the IAR Embedded Workbench for Renesas Synergy or the e² studio ISDE for Renesas Synergy. They can be downloaded free of charge from the following Web site.

Notes

  1. The E2 emulator is under development so that JTAG connection is supported for the current measurement.
  2. The usable functions of the E20 emulator for RX family MCUs other than those of the RX600 and RX700 series are the same as for the E1.
  3. The E2 emulator can be used with V7.0.0 and later versions of the e² studio. The usable functions are the same as for the E1.

Notes
  1. For details of Renesas MCUs, refer to the Product Info page for the individual products.
  2. The E2 emulator is under development so that JTAG connection is supported for the current measurement. Use FINE connection for the measurement.
  3. Before using QE for BLE, see the “Solution Toolkit” table on the “Operating Environments for the Latest Versions of Tool Products” page and check that you have selected the type of QE for BLE that is correct for the family of the target MCU and are using a version of the e² studio which supports the given type of QE for BLE.
