Smart Analog Easy Starter is a GUI evaluation tool for designing the analog front-end circuit of Smart Analog devices and editing analog circuit data while observing the waveforms on a computer screen. Circuit design can be performed easily by operating a mouse on a computer screen using a Smart Analog evaluation board manufactured by Tessera Technology.


  • GUI tool for Smart Analog evaluation board
  • Perform circuit design and customization using a circuit block diagram style GUI.
  • The circuit data (register values, etc.) you create can be displayed in a list, saved, and restored
  • AFE register files created in the Renesas VA online simulator can be imported*1
  • Edit circuit data while observing waveforms in Easy Starter
  • Generate C source code for circuit design*2
  • Generated C source code is compatible with files generated by SA-Designer (project not registered to CS+)
  • Notes:
    1. AFE register files created in Renesas VA cannot be imported to Smart Analog Easy Starter 101.
    2. Except interface C source code.
