SEGGER ecosystem now available for the Renesas RE MCU family

1 min read

SEGGER Microcontroller, in cooperation with Renesas, is making its entire product portfolio available for Renesas' RE Family microcontroller units (MCUs).

This portfolio includes a full line of development tools, embedded software and production tools, making firmware development for the Arm-based Renesas RE MCUs easier and faster.

Development can now begin with SEGGER’s Embedded Studio IDE, which includes a highly optimised run-time library and SEGGER’s own compiler and linker. Together, these tools generate extremely small and efficient application code.

The J-Link debug probe offers a very fast flash download, including an unlimited number of breakpoints in flash memory.

On the application software side, SEGGER is able to offer a highly efficient RTOS along with communication, security, GUI and IoT software designed in-house specifically for embedded systems. SEGGER’s system verification tool, SystemView and its Flasher series of production programmers are also available.

Projects can be generated and trial versions of the software are also available. SEGGER’s technical team and ecosystem will also be able to offer full support throughout the development process.

The power efficiency of the Renesas RE Family MCUs (including the RE01-256K), combined with the low resource usage of SEGGER software, will help to minimise and, in some cases, remove the need to recharge or replace batteries. This combined efficiency could have far reaching effects for home and building automation, smart farming, factories, a wide range of medical devices and wearable applications.

“The RE Family MCUs provide solutions for a wide range of IoT applications, delivering high performance with ultra-low power consumption,” says Graeme Clark of Renesas. “With SEGGER’s ecosystem for the RE MCUs, we are able to provide customers with the necessary tools for developments that contribute to a brighter, more sustainable future.”
