Renesas Electronics America announces expanded ecosystem for RX100 family of MCUs

USA: Renesas Electronics America announced an expanded portfolio of development tools and middleware solutions for use with the company’s RX100 family of entry-level 32bit microcontrollers (MCUs) with True Low Power technology and on-chip connectivity.

The tools and middleware solutions, from leading technology partners including IAR Systems, SEGGER Microcontroller, Micrium, Express Logic, CMX, RoweBots, and FreeRTOS, make it easier and faster to design products based on RX100 MCUs, including devices for mobile healthcare, internet of things, smart meters, sensors/detector, and industrial and building automation applications.

"To support the market's needs for industry-standard development tools and middleware solutions, Renesas Electronics America has teamed up with select technology partners," said Ritesh Tyagi, senior director, microcontroller products, Renesas Electronics America. "The RX100 Series’ outstanding low-power characteristics and on-chip USB host and device functionality, combined with a well-established ecosystem, offer designers world-class solutions for low-cost 32-bit embedded systems."

New tools supporting the RX100 MCU architecture include:
* The e2studio integrated development environment (IDE) and RX-C compiler from Renesas.
* IAR Embedded Workbench and RX C-compiler from IAR Systems.
* CMX-RTX (RTOS kernel) and CMX-USB (USB stack) ports by CMX.
* ThreadX (RTOS kernel) and USBX (USB stack) ports by Express Logic.
* FreeRTOS port by Real Time Engineers Ltd.
* µC/OS-III (RTOS kernel) and µC/USB (USB stack) ports by Micrium.
* Unison RTOS kernel and USB stack ports by RoweBots
embOS (RTOS kernel) and emUSB (USB stack) ports by SEGGER.

These tools and middleware solutions are available now and can be used with the first product group in the RX100 Series, the RX111, with USB host and device connectivity, motor control capability and advanced analogue functions.
