Renesas Electronics’ latest solution kit is based on the RZ/N1L Group of microprocessors (MPUs). In addition to the RZ/N1D Group for high-end processors for master devices including Programmable Logic Controller (PLC) and the RZ/N1S Group for mid-range devices including Human Machine Interface (HMI), the RZ/N Series includes the RZ/N1L Group and is optimized for slave devices including remote IO and communication modules, and networked drives. Solution kits for RZ/N1D and RZ/N1S are already available. With the release of the RZ/N1L solution kit, evaluation kits for all groups of the RZ/N Series are now available, enabling evaluation of network functions for a wide range of industrial equipment.
The RZ/N1L Solution Kit includes an RZ/N1L development board and a comprehensive software package that will enable engineers to jump start evaluation of industry-leading industrial Ethernet protocols including EtherCAT, PROFINET, and EtherNet/IPTM without any upfront costs or complexity. The RZ/N1L Solution Kit also includes a general software application programmable interface (API) that simplifies application development and mitigates design risk. These features allow system manufacturers to shorten evaluation time of their application up to three months. Kit features include the RZ/N1L development board, a general API, sample code, and protocol stacks
The RZ/N1L Solution Kit will be available for evaluation starting April 2018. For more info visit Renesas.
