Starter Kit+ for RZ/A1H Microprocessors

Starter Kit+ for RZ/A1H Microprocessors

The Renesas Starter Kit+ for RZ/A1H has been developed to speed up device evaluation, code development, and reduce time to market. The Renesas Starter Kit+, as the name suggests, is a complete development kit for the Renesas RZ/A1H device family.

The RZ is a family of embedded processors that retains the ease-of-use of Renesas microprocessors (MPUs) while combining Renesas' proprietary technologies with the ARM® ecosystem, fusing control and information technology (IT) to provide the solutions necessary for the smart society of the future.

The RZ/A series is based on the concept of the SH7260 series with built-in peripheral functions for display and audio that employs as its CPU an ARM Cortex-A9 for superior throughput processing performance. The SH7260 series is widely-used in embedded devices such as automotive and industrial equipment with digital audio or liquid crystal display (LCD) panels. The RZ/A series provides vastly improved functions and capabilities compared to the previous SH7260 series products. Maximum 10 MB on-chip RAM enables image data for two screens of WXGA size image display to be recorded (used as frame buffer) without external SDRAM. Compared to the WVGA size (800 x 480 pixels) display of previous Renesas products, the product can be expanded to WXGA size without adding external SDRAM, enabling a more compact size to be obtained. Since external SDRAM is unnecessary, issues concerning the cost of SDRAM, mounting area, power consumption, noise, stable long-term supply, and so on can also be solved.
