Renesas RZ/A1H

Renesas Electronics Corp. and ARM collaborated to introduce a free starter kit targeting initial software development and evaluation of Renesas' ARM Cortex-A9 processor-based RZ/A1 group MPUs. The starter kit was on ARMs flagship suite of software development tools.

The ARM Development Studio 5 (DS-5) Starter Kit for Renesas RZ/A1 devices pairs with Renesas RZ/A1 evaluation boards to accelerate silicon evaluation and software prototyping with a high quality software development environment and real-time operating system (RTOS). The starter kit is free for one year, and bundles lightweight versions of ARMs leading compilation, debug and analysis tools. In addition, the DS-5 starter kit incorporates a port of the royalty-free Keil CMSIS-RTOS RTX for RZ/A1 devices, as well as low-cost JTAG debug connection via the Keil ULINKpro and ULINK2 probes.

Increasing software design complexity and pressure for ever shorter development cycles makes tools and middleware critical to any projects success. The customisation of the DS-5 toolchain and Keil CMSIS-RTOS RTX for RZ/A1 provides customers with a low cost platform to accelerate their platform evaluation and prototyping.

The DS-5 Starter Kit for Renesas RZ/A1, including Keil CMSIS-RTOSRTX for Cortex-A9 source code, is available for download now.
