Renesas’ enhanced RX65N Wi-Fi connectivity cloud kit

Renesas, suppliers of advanced semiconductor solutions, recently announced the Renesas RX65N Cloud Kit, featuring onboard Wi-Fi, environmental, light and inertial sensors, and support for Amazon FreeRTOS connected to Amazon Web Services (AWS).

The kit is said to give embedded designers a fast start and secure connection to AWS. Using Renesas’ e2 studio Integrated Development Environment (IDE), IoT applications are easily created by configuring Amazon FreeRTOS, all the necessary drivers, and the network stack and component libraries.

The RX65N Cloud Kit provides an evaluation and prototyping environment, enabling embedded designers to create secure end-to-end Internet of Things (IoT) cloud solutions for sensor-based endpoint equipment. Employing Renesas’ browser-based software, users can visualise their sensor data using a smart device cloud dashboard to monitor a wide range of applications including networked smart meters, building, office, and industrial automation systems, as well as home appliances.

Renesas’ 32-bit RX65N MCUs offer dual bank flash for secure and easy program updating via the network, as well as remote over-the-air (OTA) firmware updates. Having dual bank flash integrated on the RX65N MCUs enables both BGO (Background Operation) and SWAP functions, making it easier for system and network control manufacturers to execute in-the-field firmware updates.

The MCUs also include Trusted Secure IP (TSIP) as part of their built-in hardware security engine. The TSIP driver uses strong encryption key management with hardware accelerators – AES, 3DES, SHA, RSA, and TRNG – as well as a protected boot code flash area to securely boot customers’ IoT devices.
