Renesas Electronics enables high intelligence, efficiency and Power Factor with DALI and DMX while reducing system cost.

Renesas' Solutions for LED Lighting

Here is where Renesas’ solutions stand out!

Renesas offers Applilet EZ for HCD, a software auto-generator tool. The key benefit of the software tool is that no microcontroller experience is required to generate software code and program it to the flash memory of an evaluation board - this can be accomplished with just a simple mouse click. In addition, we offer a master board and master controller graphical user interface (GUI) useful for development and evaluation of DALI and DMX512 communications, providing total support for the development of lighting applications.

Provided Free of Charge

Applilet EZ for HCD is a tool for generating and programming software for LED lighting and illumination applications. By simply specifying a dimming operation or communication mode graphically using the GUI, you can easily generate software for digital power supply control (PFC, DC-DC) and DALI communication. The generated software can be automatically programmed to the flash memory of a microcontroller via a USB cable to easily verify operation on an evaluation board.

Using Applilet EZ for HCD enables you to significantly reduce the time needed to develop software for LED control and DALI communication. You can evaluate LED lighting or illumination application systems that use microcontrollers even if you are not experienced with microcontrollers. You can also edit the generated program in an integrated development environment (IDE).

Applilet EZ for HCD is available for download free of charge.

Tools for master communication control development and evaluation

We offer two master communication control evaluation boards that can be used to develop master devices and evaluate communication.

The EZ-0008 is an evaluation tool that supports DALI (IEC62386-102 Ed. 1.0) command transmission, DMX512, and infrared transmission.

The TCM-RL78I1A (from Tessera Technology) is a reference board that can be used to develop master devices that support DALI (IEC62386-102 Ed. 2.0, IEC62836-207 Ed. 1.0) command transmission, DMX512, and infrared transmission. You can use it as a reference and to evaluate lighting control using various communication protocols.

When evaluating communication, DALI or DMX512 communication can be controlled from a GUI, which can be downloaded free of charge from the Renesas website.
