Renesas Technology Europe and Platinum Alliance partner MPC Data Limited, announce the availability of their µCLinux board support package (BSP) and tool chain for Renesas’ SH-2A-based microcontroller, the SH7203. The µCLinux BSP is fully compliant with Renesas’ RSK7203plus development board, and includes the drivers for the peripherals integrated in the SH7203. This allows developers to target a wide variety of applications requiring connectivity, TFT-drive and hundreds of MIPS performance. Increasingly, designers are being faced with these challenges when industrial PC applications have to use lower power, meet reduced cost budgets and occupy less space. The BSP covers man machine interface (MMI) features, communications and storage functions. Also included are versions of Binutils and BusyBox utility applications. These combine tiny versions of common Linux utilities in a single small executable file.
