The new E2 emulator is an advanced on-chip debugging emulator and flash programmer developed based on a concept of "improvement of development efficiency". The download speed is up to twice as fast as the E1 emulator. Moreover, using combinations with the upcoming release solutions will contribute to reduction in development time.

1. As for tools produced by partners, Contact each company directly.
2. The e² studio does not support RH850-family MCUs with the next-generation G4MH core, such as those of the RH850/E2x series.
- High-speed download up to twice as fast as E1
- The download speed is up to twice as fast as the E1 emulator. This substantially reduces waiting time for downloading the control programs to one-half at a maximum.
CAN Communication Time Measurement Solution (For RH850 family)
The following CAN-related tasks are possible in conjunction with the CS+ integrated development environment or the MULTI® integrated development environment (GHS MULTI) from Green Hills Software. This eases verifying the speed of CAN communications in terms of meeting the system requirements.
- Measuring reception processing times in CAN communications with the E2 emulator alone
- Stopping the program when the reception processing times exceeds the design value
- Visualizing the history of CAN communications
Application note: For RH850 (CS+)
Current consumption Tuning Solution (For RL78 and RX families)
In conjunction with the QE for Current Consumption, a dedicated tool for measuring current drawn, the E2 emulator is capable of the following tasks. These shorten the time taken to tune currents.
- Measuring current with an E2 emulator alone
- Stopping a program when an excessive current is detected
- Visualizing the relationship between program operations and current
Support for the input and output of external triggers (For RH850 family)
For example, you can set up the stopping of programs or of the measurement of waveforms by simply using the test lead which comes with the E2 emulator to connect the emulator to an external measuring instrument with the CS+ integrated development environment or the MULTI® integrated development environment (GHS MULTI) from Green Hills Software.
Hot plug-in function available without an optional adapter
Although the E1 emulator required an optional hot plug adapter sold separately to use the hot plug-in function, the E2 emulator does not need it.
Board interface compatible with that of E1
- The E2 emulator can be connected to the user system that was designed for the E1 emulator because the pin arrangement to be connected to the user system has compatibility with the E1 emulator.
- The optional products for E1 emulator are available. See the optional products for E2 for the details.
Support for new MCUs with next-generation cores
MCUs that have next-generation cores, such as those of the RH850/E2x series (which incorporate the G4MH core) or the RX66T group (which incorporate the new RXv3 core for the RX family) can be debugged.
Software Trace Function (For RH850 family)
The function enables users to view the execution history of the programs such as the values of the program counter (PC) and the register values together with the debug instructions of MCUs for RH850 family. Using this feature, unlike the conventional method of “tracing data with the settings of events and conditions,” users can generate the execution history data such as the PC values and register values simply by inserting the debug instructions to the location where you like to check in the program.
This feature is available in all RH850 family MCUs, including the ones do not have internal trace memory when debugging.
Note that some functions shown here may not be supported under the IDE you use. Performance property and Connection system also vary depending on the MCU type.

1. To use the E2 emulator with boards designed for the E1, use the E2's accompanying conversion adaptor.
Following optional products are provided to facilitate the use of the E2 emulators. Please make sure to choose the products that match MCUs you use.
Note: Please read references to "E1 emulator" in the manuals for optional products as also meaning "E2 emulator".

Isolator — Enables debugging in an environment where there is a difference in potential between the user system GND and the host PC GND.
Low voltage OCD Board — Enables you to debug the target MCU, even if the adapter voltage is not high enough to reprogram internal Flash ROM. This product is used between the emulator and a user's system, and is united by the in-circuit connection with the user's system.
|Low voltage OCD Board for RL78/G10 (10-pin/16-pin)
An OCD board for debugging an RL78/G10 MCU (10-pin or 16-pin) with an adapter voltage below 4.5 V

Debug MCU Board — Enables the incircuit connection of the emulator with the user's system. This board allows you to use enhanced debugging functions. The applicable debugging function varies depending on the MCU type.
|Debug MCU Board for RH850 Supported devices for Debug MCU Board for RH850 Family
This board enables use of the trace function even if the target MCU does not have a trace function. The Debug MCU Board is for use in combination with a separately available 176-pin (with internal trace function) MCU of the RH850/F1L group.
Note: The package of the Debug MCU Board does not include the MCU. Please purchase it separately. For details, contact either a Renesas Electronics Corporation representative (responsible for sales) or distributor. (Buy or Sample)>>
