Renesas collaborates with IS2T and Micrium on Embedded Java for RX MCUs
Renesas Electronics America in partnership with Micrium has collaborated with IS2T to offer the MicroEJ Java platforms for Renesas RX microcontrollers (MCUs). The collaboration offers developers a software strategy based on the “application platform" approach to expand product ranges, accelerate specification process, and improve user experience for markets specifically targeted by the RX product family, such as smart grid, smart metering, smart appliances, building & home automation, and other Internet of Things (IoT) applications.
The IS2T MicroEJ encompasses the entire embedded software lifecycle management – prototyping, development and testing – powered by simulated development environment representative of the ‘target hardware’. The MicroEJ platform works on Micrium RTOS µC/OS-III running on Renesas RX MCU family. The scalability of MicroEJ allows the same application to be developed on a wide range of Renesas MCU/MPU devices, starting with the RX, based on customers’ target cost/performance constraints. As part of the MicroEJ platform, IS2T offers a rich, easy-to-use GUI for cost-sensitive MCUs, complementing Renesas RX MCUs with the Direct Drive solution for native graphic LCD support.
MicroEJ is available now for RX63N MCUs. Graphics demos featuring the MicroEJ GUI capability are available on the Embedded GUI Solution Kit (YLCDRX63N board) with graphic LCD. They can be downloaded from the YLCDRX63N web page
The Evaluation version of MicroEJ is available for download and test on the IS2T RX web page.
