SH7712 microprocessor now supported by Linux 2.6 BSP
Renesas Technology Europe and its Platinum Alliance Partner MPC Data Limited have announced the immediate availability of a Linux Board Support Package (BSP) for the popular SH7712 Renesas 32-bit SuperH® microprocessor. The Linux BSP is targeted for the development platform MS7712SE01 that provides an excellent basis for engineers to design new products, shorten their development time and get products to market faster.
The Linux BSP is based on the SH3-DSP Linux 2.6 OS kernel and includes drivers for key peripherals including Dual 10/100 Ethernet, serial ports, PCMCIA/ATA driver and three timer channels. To assist development further, the BSP also contains a Filesystem, Busybox, a DHCP Client and NFS.

Phil Buckley, MPC Data’s Linux Embedded Business Group Director commented “Linux is becoming the strategic platform of choice for many customers and developers need a solid hardware and software platform to deliver innovative solutions. This SH7712 Linux BSP will give a great starting point”.

Says Joachim Hüpper, Renesas Technology’s Consumer-Industrial Business Unit Marketing Manager, ”The SH7712 offers double-ethernet functionality and the CPU performance to effectively handle the data traffic for our industrial customer base, for example for factory automation applications. The new BSP makes it easy and fast to embed the power of the SH7712 into such applications.”

The MS7712SE01 development board and SH7712 Linux BSP are available now from MPC Data.
Renesas’ SH7712 MPU is based on a modern 200MHz SH3-DSP CPU core with cache, XY-RAM, double-ethernet with dedicated DMA support and a bridge, as well as several other peripherals and JTAG debug. It is particularly suited to industrial, office automation and network applications such as factory automation gateways, network cameras, IP faxes, network printers, home gateway servers and security equipment.
