Even with embedded Linux inexperience,
development can be started easily.
- RZ/G Linux platform introduction support site -

In recent years, along with the advancement of embedded devices in the industrial field,
the range that developers must deal with is rapidly expanding,
such as network correspondence, multimedia support, security correspondence.

Increasing development period and accompanying increase of total cost
including development and maintenance cost of system are becoming big problems.

Renesas solves this problem on the RZ/G Linux platform.

How to start RZ/G Linux platform

You can begin the development of embedded Linux with verified operation in Step 1 ~ 4.

Step1.   User registration of development environment

First of all, let's register as a user with MyPage on the marketplace and get a cloud development environment.

Marketplace > MyPage

After completing the user registration, you can use the following various functions in the marketplace.
- Purchase tools
- Document download
- Participation in the community

Cloud development environment service [trial version] (free) can also be obtained from here.

Step2.   Obtain evaluation kit

Please prepare an evaluation kit compatible with RZ/G Linux platform.
We plan to increase the number of compatible kits in the future.
If it is a compatible kit, you can immediately proceed with development using the "Linux package" that has been verified operation.
